  • Song Lyrics:
    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
    Tryin' hard to look like Gary Cooper (super duper)
    Come let's mix where Rockefellers walk with sticks or um-ber-ellas in their mitts
    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 Arrow collars
    White spats, and lots of dollars
    Spending every dime
    For a wonderful time

    [Repeat 1st verse]

    Dressed up like a million-dollar trooper
    Tryin' hard to look like Gary Cooper (super duper)
    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
    Puttin' on the Ritz
    Puttin' on the Ritz
    Puttin' on the Ritz

    (Down-town, up-town, get your kicks at the Ritz)
    (Dine 'n' wine, but not 'til nine, the time is right for us to tonight)
    (We can move, move to the rhythm, you can)

    (Move...dance to the rhythm, nice and easy)

    (I wantcha to move)

    (Puttin' it on, puttin' it on, puttin' it on, puttin' it on the R - I -T - Z, how 'bout you and me, says)

    (Gotta dance...) (Gotta dance)

    (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...)
    (MarlinsGirl)
