Puttin’ On The Ritz is a classic jazz standard from 1930. It’s about dressing up fashionably.

Fun fact: a cover of Puttin’ On The Ritz by artist Taco was released in 1983 and reached the top ten on the Billboard chart, making Irving Berlin the oldest person to have a song reach the top ten (being 95 years old!)

This Sheet Music Boss arrangement by Andrew Wrangell is approximately grade 4 level. It’s a very well-known song song and sure to be a fantastic repertoire choice at a concert!

Lyrics:
Have you seen the well-to-do
Up on lenox avenue
On that famous thoroughfare
With their noses in the air
High hats and arrowed collars
White spats and fifteen dollars
Spending every dime
On a wonderful time

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 a bevy of high browns
From down the levee, all misfits
Puttin’ on the Ritz

That’s where each and every lulu bell goes
Every thursday evening with her swell beaus
Rubbing elbows

Come with me and we’ll attend their jubilee
And see them spend their last two bits
Puttin’ on the Ritz

Have you seen the well-to-do
Up on lenox avenue
On that famous thoroughfare
With their noses in the air
High hats and arrowed collars
White 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 harlem sits
Puttin’ on the Ritz

Spangled gowns upon a bevy of high browns
From down the levee, all misfits
Puttin’ on the Ritz

That’s where each and every lulu bell goes
Every thursday evening with her swell beaus
Rubbing elbows

Come with me and we’ll attend their jubilee
And see them spend their last two bits
Puttin’ on the Ritz
