Have you seen the well to do up in 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

If you're blue, and you don't know where to go to
Why don't you go where fashion sits?
Putting on the Ritz
Different types of wear a day coat
Pants with stripes and cut-away coats
Perfect fits
Putting on the Ritz

Dressed up like a million dollar trooper
Trying hard to look like Gary Cooper
Super duper!
Come, let's mix where Rockefellers
Walk with sticks or umbrellas in their mitts

Putting on the Ritz
Putting on the Ritz
Putting on the Ritz
Putting on the Ritz

Tips his hat just like an English chappie
To a lady with a wealthy pappy
Very snappy
You declare simply topping
To be there and hear them swapping
Smart tidbits
Putting on the Ritz
Putting on the Ritz
