Puttin' On The Ritz Lyrics

Puttin' on the Ritz, puttin' on the Ritz
Puttin' on the Ritz, puttin' on the Ritz
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

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

Diff'rent types of wear a day coat
Pants with stripes and cutaway coat
Perfect fits, puttin' on the Ritz

Dressed up like a million dollar trouper
Tryin' 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

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

Diff'rent types of wear a day coat
Pants with stripes and cutaway coat
Perfect fits, puttin' on the Ritz

Dressed up like a million dollar trouper
Tryin' mighty hard to look like Super Duper
Mister Cooper

Come let's mix where Rockefellers
Walk with sticks or "Umberellas"
In their mitts, puttin' on the Ritz

Puttin' on the Ritz, puttin' on the Ritz
Puttin' on the Ritz, puttin' on the Ritz
Puttin' on the Ritz
