What the Well-Dressed Man in Harlem Will Wear Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
There's a change in fashion that shows
In those Lenox Avenue clothes
Mister Dude has disappeared with his flashy tie
You'll see in the Harlem Esquire
What the well-dressed man will desire
When he's struttin' down the street with his sweetie-pie
Verse 2
Sun tan, shade of green
Or an olive drab color scheme
That's what the well-dressed man in Harlem will wear
Verse 3
Dressed up in O.D.'s
With a tin hat for overseas
That's what the well-dressed man in Harlem will wear
Verse 4
Top hat, white tie and tails no more
They've been put away till after the war
Verse 5
If you want to know
Take a look at Brown Bomber Joe
That's what the well-dressed man in Harlem will wear
