Verse:
Have you seen the well - to - do,  Up and down Park Av - e - nue,
On that fam - ous thor - ough - fare,  With their nos - es in the air?
High hats and ar - row col - lars,  White spats and lots of dol - lars,
Spend - ing ev - ry dime,  For a won - der - ful time.
 
Chorus:
If you're blue and you don't know where to go to,  Why don't you go where fash - ion sits,
Put - tin' On The Ritz.
Diff - 'rent types who wear a day coat,  Pants with stripes and cut - a - way coat,  Per - fect fits,
Put - tin' On The Ritz.
Strol - ling up the av - e - nue so hap - py.
All dressed up just like an Eng - lish chap - pie,  Ver -y snap - py.
Come lets mix where Rock - a - fel - lers,  Walk with sticks or um - ber - el - las,  In their mitts,
Put - tin' On The Ritz.
