LyricsNoel Coward at Las Vegas

For many it is in Coward's lyrics that he reveals his true talent. During his life he was given the title 'The Master' to indicate the depth and range of his ability in so many fields of entertainment but it is in his use and application of the English language where his skill and sense of fun is best revealed.

Noël's lyrics are loved for their witty and effective use of complex rhyming schemes, where internal rhymes and rhythms are used to create incisive, mental pictures of the absurdity of the human condition in both usual and unlikely situations.

Noël Coward - The Complete Lyrics edited and annotated by Barry Day and published by Methuen, offers the most complete picture of Coward's lyric writing.
