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 ev'ry 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.
Diff'rent types who wear a day coat,  Pants with stripes and cutaway coat,  Perfect fits,
Puttin' On The Ritz.
Strolling up the avenue so happy.
All dressed up just like an English chappie,  Very snappy.
Come lets mix where Rockafellers,  Walk with sticks or umberellas,  In their mitts,
Puttin' On The Ritz.
