I have heard among this clan,
You are called the forgotten man
(Is that what they're saying, well did you evah!)
(What a swell party this is)

And have you heard the story of,
A boy, a girl, unrequited love
(Sounds like pure soap opera, tune in tomorrow) 
I may cry
(What a swell party this is)

(What frills, what frocks) What broads!
(What furs, what rocks!) They're bootiful.
(Why I've never seen such gaity) Neither have I.
(It's all just too, too risque really)

This french champagne (Domestic)
(So good for the brain) That's what I was going to say.
(You know you're a brilliant fellow?) Why thank you
(Pick up jack please don't eat that glass my friend)

(Have you heard, about dear Blanche?)
(Got run down by an avalanche) No!
(Oh don't worry, shes a game girl you know, got up and finished 4th)
The kids got guts. (Having a nice time? Grab aline!)

Have you heard that Mimsie Starr (What now)
She got pinched in the Astor bar
(Sloshed again, eh?) She was stoned.
Well, did you evah? (Never!)
What a swell party this is!

Hey, check out that act! (That's a lovely dress)
You think I can talk her out of it?

It's great, (Ah it's great)
So grand! (So grand)
It's wonderland!
La da da da

(We sing), oh we sing
(So rare) so rare
(Like old camembert)
(Like baba au rhum!)
Don't dig that kind of crooning chum!

Have you heard? It's in the stars
Next July we collide with Mars.
Well, did you evah?
What a swell party, a swell party
A swelligant, elegant party this is!

(Let's drink to your health)
No, let's drink to your wealth
(You're my bon ami)
Hey, that's french
(Both) A liberty fraternity

Have you heard? It's in the stars
Next July we collide with Mars.
Well, did you evah?
What a swell party, swell party
Swelligant, elegant party this is!
