Have you seen the well to do, up and down Park Avenue

On that famous through fare, with their noses in the air

High hats and narrow collars, white spats and lots of dollars

Spending every dime, for a wonderful time.


If your blue and you don't know where to go to why don't you go where fashion sits - Puttin' on the Ritz.

Different types of wear all day coat pants with stripes and cut away coats perfect fits - Puttin' on the Ritz.

Dressed up like a million dollar trooper - trying hard to look like Gary Cooper - Super-Duper

Come lets mix where Rockafellers walk with sticks or umbrellas in their mits - Puttin' on the Ritz.
