Puttin’ On The Ritz

By I. Berlin

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 narrow collars
White spats and fifteen 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?
Putting’ on the Ritz

Different types who wear a day coat
Pants with stripes and cutaway coat, perfect fits
Puttin’ on the ritz

Dressed up like a million dollar trooper
Tryin’ hard to look like Gary Cooper
Super duper

If you’re blue, and you don’t know where to go to
Why don’t you go where fashion sits?
Putting’ on the Ritz

Dressed up like a million dollar trooper
Tryin’ hard to look like Gary Cooper
Super duper

If you’re blue, and you don’t know where to go to
Why don’t you go where fashion sits?
Putting’ on the Ritz
