Irving Berlin

Irving Berlin - Puttin' On The Ritz

rate me

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 fifteen 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 Harlem flits

Puttin' on the Ritz

Spangled Gowns upon the bevy of

High browns from down the levy

Always spits

Puttin' on the Ritz

That's where each and every lulu-belle goes

Every Thursday evening with her swell beaus

Rubbin' elbows

Come with me and we'll attend their jubilee

And see them spend

Their last two bits

Puttin' on the Ritz

------ short instrumental break ------

(Boys, look at that man puttin' on that Ritz)

Now, if you're blue

And you don't know where to go to

Why don't you go where Harlem flits

Puttin' on the Ritz

Spangled Gowns upon the bevy of

High browns from down the levy

All misfits

Puttin' on that certain Ritz

Come with me and we'll attend their jubilee

And see them spend

Their last two bits

Puttin' on the Ritz

Come with me and we'll attend their jubilee

And see them spend

Their last two bits

Puttin' on the Ritz
