- original soundtrack -

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 Arrow 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,
Puttin' on the ritz.
Different types who wear a daycoat, 
pants with stripes
And cut away coat, 
perfect fits,
Puttin' on the ritz.

Dressed up like a million dollar trouper
Trying hard to look like Gary Cooper 
super duper

Come let's mix where Rockefellers 
walk with sticks
Or umbrellas in their mitts
Puttin' on the Ritz

Tips his hat just like an English chappie
To a lady with a wealthy pappy 
very snappy

You'll declare it's simply topping 
to be there And hear them swapping 
smart tidbits
Puttin' on the ritz!

(Puttin' on the Ritz, Fred Astaire)
