Puttin' On The Ritz Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Have you seen the well to do
Up and down Park Avenue
On that famous thoroughfare
With their noses in the air
Verse 2
High hats and narrow collars
White spats and lots of dollars
Spending every dime
For a wonderful time
Verse 3
Now, 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
Different types who wear a day coat
Pants with stripes and cutaway coat
Perfect fits
Puttin' on the Ritz
Verse 4
Dressed up like a million dollar trooper
Trying hard to look like Gary Cooper
Super duper
Verse 5
Come, let's mix where Rockefellers
Walk with sticks or "umbrellas"
In their mitts
Puttin' on the Ritz
Verse 6
Tips his hat just like an English chappie
To a lady with a wealthy pappy
Very snappy
Verse 7
You'll declare it's simply topping
To be there and hear them swapping
Smart tidbits
Puttin' on the Ritz
