TITLE: Putting On the Ritz
Lyrics and Chords

[ Abdim7 = xx0101 ; Bbdim7 = xx2323 ]

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

/ Dm Abdim7 Em7 A7 Dm Abdim7 Em7 A7 / 
   / F Abdim7 C7 - F Abdim7 C7 - / 
   / A6 Bbdim7 Bm7 E7 A6 Bbdim7 Bm7 E7 / 
   / F#m F#m7 B7 - E7 - A7 - /

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

/ Dm - - - - / - - - A7 A7sus4 A7 - / Dm - Bb A7 / 

Diff'rent types who wear a day coat, pants with stripes
And cutaway coat, perfect fits
Puttin' on the Ritz

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

   / Gm - - D7 Gm - C7 - / F Dm7 Gm7 C7 F - / Bb A7 /

Come let's mix where Rockefellers walk with sticks
Or "um-ber-ellas" in their mitts
Puttin' on the Ritz

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

You'll declare it's simply "top-thing" to be there
And hear them swapping smart tidbits
Puttin' on the Ritz
