Put on your slumming clothes and get your car
Let's go sightseeing where the high-toned people are
Come on, there's lots of fun in store for you
See how the other half lives on park avenue

Let's go slumming, take me slumming
Let's go slumming on park avenue

Let us hide behind a pair of fancy glasses
And make faces when a member of the classes passes

Let's go smelling where they're dwelling
Sniffing everything the way they do

Let us go to it, they do it
Why can't we do it too? 
Let's go slumming, nose thumbing, on park avenue

Let's go slumming, take me slumming
Let's go slumming on park avenue

Where the social hearts for Broadway lights are throbbing
And they spend their nights in smart cafes hobnobbing, snobbing

Come let's eye them, pass right by them
Looking down our noses as they do

Let us go to it, they do it
Why can't we do it too? 
Let's go slumming, crumb bumming, on park avenue
