Have you seen the well-to-doUp and down park avenueOn that famous thoroughfareWith their noses in the airHigh hats and narrow collarsWhite spats and lots of dollarsSpending every dimeFor a wonderful timeNow, if you’re blueAnd you don’t know where to go toWhy don’t you go where fashion sitsPuttin’ on the ritzDifferent types who wear a daycoatPants with stripes and cutaway coatPerfect fitsPuttin’ on the ritzDressed up like a million dollar trooperTrying hard to look like gary cooperSuper-duperCome, let’s mix where rockefellersWalk with sticks or umberellasIn their mittsPuttin’ on the ritz------ short instrumental break ------Tips his hat just like an english chappieTo a lady with a wealthy pappyVery snappyYou’ll declare it’s simply toppingTo be there and hear them swappingSmart tidbitsPuttin’ on the ritz
