"Puttin' on the Ritz [From Blue Skies]" as written by and Irving Berlin....
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 narrow collars
White spats and lots of dollars
Spending every dime
For a wonderful time

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

Dressed up like a million dollar trooper
Trying hard to look like Gary Cooper
Super duper

Come, let's mix where Rockefeller's
Walk with sticks or "umbrellas"
In their mitts
Puttin' on the Ritz

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

Dressed up like a million dollar trooper
Trying mighty hard to look like super duper
Mr. Cooper

Come, let's mix where Rockefeller's
Walk with sticks or "umbrellas"
In their mitts
Puttin' on the Ritz
