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

Dressed up like a million dollar trooper
Tryin' hard to look like Gary Cooper
(Super duper)
Come let's mix where Rockefellers walk with sticks
Or umbrellas in their mitts, puttin' on the ritz

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

Dressed up like a million dollar trooper
Tryin' hard to look like Gary Cooper
(Super duper)
Come let's mix where Rockefellers walk with sticks
Or umbrellas in their mitts, 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?
Puttin' on the ritz, puttin' on the ritz
Puttin' on the ritz, puttin' on the ritz

Downtown, uptown, get your kicks at the Ritz
Dine 'n' wine but not 'til nine, the time is right for us to tonight
We can move, move to the rhythm, you can move
Dance to the rhythm, nice and easy

I wan'tcha to move
Put it on, puttin' it on, puttin' it on, puttin' it on the R I T Z
How 'bout you and me, says
Gotta dance, gotta dance

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, puttin' on the ritz
Puttin' on the ritz, puttin' on the ritz
