Currently being played on Sirius XM's Siriusly Sinatra, this song was originally recorded in 1928. It was a shocking and risque title. Everybody thought they knew what 'it' was but nobody dared talk about it and they couldn't prove which 'it' they were talking about!

The first verse covers human ethnic groups, the second verse birds, the third verse marine life.

A punk rock version performed by Joan Jett and Paul Westerberg was used as the theme song in the 1995 movie Tank Girl.

Lyrics

Birds do it, bees do it
Even educated fleas do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

In Spain, the best upper sets do it
Lithuanians and Letts do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

The Dutch in old Amsterdam do it
Not to mention the Finns
Folks in Siam do it - think of Siamese twins

Some Argentines without means do it
People say in Boston even beans do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

Romantic sponges, they say, do it
Oysters down in Oyster Bay do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

Cold Cape Cod clams, 'gainst their wish, do it
Even lazy jellyfish do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

Electric eels, I might add, do it
Though it shocks 'em I know
Why ask if shad do it? Waiter, bring me shad roe!

In shallow shoals, English soles do it
Goldfish in the privacy of bowls do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love
