IRVING BERLIN


Puttin' On The Ritz Lyrics

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 lots of dollars
Spending every dime
For a wonderful time

Now, 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 daycoat
Pants with stripes and cutaway coat
Perfect fits
Puttin' on the ritz

Dressed up like a million dollar trooper
Trying hard to look like gary cooper
Super-duper

Come, let's mix where rockefellers
Walk with sticks or "umberellas"
In their mitts
Puttin' on the ritz

------ short instrumental break ------

Tips his hat just like an english chappie
To a lady with a wealthy pappy
Very snappy

You'll declare it's simply topping
To be there and hear them swapping
Smart tidbits
Puttin' on the ritz
