Cole Albert Porter bol americký hudobný skladateľ a textár. Je autor celej rady muzikálových komédií ako napríklad: Kiss Me, Kate, Fifty Million Frenchmen, DuBarry Was a Lady a Anything Goes. Medzi jeho najznámejšie piesne patria „Night and Day“, „I Get a Kick out of You“, „Well, Did You Evah!“ a „I've Got You Under My Skin“.

Mnoho piesní z jeho tvorby obsahuje sofistikovanú poetiku plnú milostných podtextov a humorných tém. Jeho hudobným poznávacím znamením boli komplikované jazzové rytmy. Už počas svojho života sa stal jedným z najusilovnejších autorov, ktorí patria do Great American Songbook. Stal sa jedným z mála autorov z povestnej hudobnej uličky Tin Pan Alley, ktorí tvorili zároveň hudbu aj texty svojich piesní.

But now, Heaven knows,

Whatever heart you desire,
And when you're bored with it
To tear it in two,
It must be fun to be you.
