Sharon-
When de idle poor
Become the idle rich
You'll never know
just who is who
or who is witch.
Won't it be rich
Whenever wants poor relatives,
becomes a "Rockefellative",
and pans no longer itch
What a switch!

Female Ensemble-
When beyond my permine
And plastic team
How would we do determin
Who's who under me?

Male Ensemble-
And when all your neighbours
are upper class
- You won't know your 'georges'
from your 'astors'.

Sharon-
Let's toast a day
The day we drink that drinkin' up
But with a little pinkie up.
Company- The day on witch
The idle poor
Become the idle rich

Sharon-
When a rich man doesn't want to work
He's a bon vivant.
Company-
Yes, he's a bom vivant.
Sharon-
But when a poor man doesn't want to work,
He's a laughter, he's a lounger
he's a lazier good for nothing
Company-
He's a jerk!

Sharon-
When a rich man looses on a horse
Oh, isn't it disport!
Company-
Oh, isn't it disport!

Sharon-
When a poor man looses on a horse
He's a gambler, he's a spender
He's a low life, he's a reason for divorce!

When a rich man chases after dames
He's a man about town,
A man about town.
But when a poor man chases after dames
He's a bounder, he's a rounder
He's a rotter, and a lot of dirty names!

Company-
You'll never know
just who is witch.
When de idle poor
Become the idle rich.

Sharon-
When de idle poor
Become the idle rich

Company-
When de idle poor
Become the idle rich
You'll never know
just who is who
or who is witch.

Sharon-
No one will see
The Irish or the Slavonian
'cause when you're on Park Avenue
Cornelius and Mike
Look alike

Female Ensemble-
When poor tweedle Doe
This rich tweedle Dee
Company-
This discrimination will no longer be.
Male Ensemble-
When we leave undone
and out of the nuts
Sharon-
You won't know your banker.
from your but...ler.
Let's make the switch.
We just a few a'newer 'n' this
We'll ride this incongruityies
With clothes from Ava Crombing Fitch

Female Ensemble I-
Wheeeeeeeeeen de idle poor
Female Ensemble II-
Wheeeeeeen become the
Male Ensemble-
Wheeeeeeeen idle rich

Company-
When de idle poor
Become the idle rich
