About Puttin' On The Ritz

"Puttin' On the Ritz" is a song written by Irving Berlin. He wrote it in May 1927 and first published it on December 2, 1929. It was registered as an unpublished song August 24, 1927 and again on July 27, 1928. It was introduced by Harry Richman and chorus in the musical film Puttin' On the Ritz (1930). According to The Complete Lyrics of Irving Berlin, this was the first song in film to be sung by an interracial ensemble. The title derives from the slang expression "to put on the Ritz", meaning to dress very fashionably. This expression was itself inspired by the opulent Ritz Hotel in London. Hit phonograph records of the tune in its original period of popularity of 1929–1930 were recorded by Harry Richman and by Fred Astaire, with whom the song is particularly associated. Every other record label had their own version of this popular song (Columbia, Brunswick, Victor, and all of the dime store labels). Richman's Brunswick version of the song became the number-one selling record in America. The song was featured in the 1974 Mel Brooks horror/comedy Young Frankenstein. The song is performed by Frederick Frankenstein (Gene Wilder) and his monster (Peter Boyle).

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 of wear all day coat pants
With stripes and cut away coats for perfect fits
Puttin' on the Ritz

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

Come lets mix where Rockerfellers 
Walk with sticks or umbrellas in their mits
Puttin' on the Ritz

Have you seen the well to do
Up and down Park Avenue
On that famous thorough fare
With their noses in the air
High hats and narrow collars
White spats and lots of 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 fashion sits
Puttin' on the Ritz

Different types of wear all day coat pants
With stripes and cut away coats for perfect fits
Puttin' on the Ritz

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

Come lets mix where Rockerfellers 
Walk with sticks or umbrellas in their mits
Puttin' on the Ritz

Dressed up like a million dollar trooper
Trying 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, down
Up, down
Get your kicks
Got the Ritz
Dine and wine but not till nine
The time is right for us tonight
We can move
Move to the rhythm
We can 
Move
Dance to the rhythm
I want you to move
