I heard it on the radio, I think it is by Noel Coward. I don't know the title for certain but the principle line in the poem is

"I've got to go out and be social"

It deals with the stresses and strains of having to go out and meet people and generally be nice to them. Very funny and it totally registered with me wink

I've searched the internet and my DP and I have both bought Noel Coward poetry books in an effort to track it down but so far failed to locate it. Does anyone know it or be able to sign post me to a copy?

I think it was from the show "The Girl who came to supper" and is a a song called 'I've been invited to a party'.

I may be wrong but I have a recollection of this.

I don't suppose you know where there is an online version so I can check before i buy?

Thanks everso much!

No I haven't been able to find a copy but have asked a friend who's a big Noel Coward fan. There is a couple of Noel Coward fan sites that might be worth a try
