Lyrics of Mel Torme — Puttin' On The Ritz

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 arrowed collars
Wide spats and fifteen 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, who wear a day coat
Pants with stripes and cut away coat
Perfect fits
Putting on the Ritz

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

Come, let's mix where Rockefellers
Walk with sticks or umbrellas
In their mitts
Putting on the Ritz

Spangled gowns upon a beauty
Of hand-me-downs on clown and cutie
All misfits
Putting on the Ritz

Strolling up the avenue so happy
All dressed up just like an English chappie
Very snappy

You'll declare it's simply topping
To be there and hear them swapping
Smart tidbits
Putting on the Ritz

Putting on the Ritz
Putting on the Ritz
