Have you seen the well-to-do up and down Park Avenue?
On that famous thoroughfare with their noses in the air,
High hats and Arrow collars white spats and lots of dollars,
Spending every dime for a wonderful time.
If you're blue and you don't know where to go to,
Why don't you go where fashion sits? Puttin' on the Ritz.
Different types who wear a day coat, pants with stripes
And cutaway coat, perfect fits, puttin' on the Ritz.
Strolling up the avenue so happy,
All dressed up just like an English chappie - very snappy!
Come let's mix where Rockefellers walk with sticks
Or "umber-ellas" in their mitts, puttin' on the Ritz.
Dressed up like a million dollar trouper,
Trying hard to look like Gary Cooper (super duper)
You'll declare it's simply topping to be there
And hear them swapping smart tid-bits -
Puttin' on the Ritz,
Puttin' on the Ritz, puttin' on the Ritz!
