Year: 1946 -

Written by Irving Berlin

	  		Intro: 
D        Fdim     Em7     A7 D      Fdim      Em7      A7    
Have you seen the well to do up and down Park Avenue,    
F       Fdim    C#7     C7   F         Fdim  C#7     C7    
On that famous thoroughfare with their noses in the air,    
A6   Gdim    Bm5-/7  E7      A6    Gdim     Bm5-/7    E7    
High hats and Arrow collars white spats and lots of dollars,    
F#m7     C#m7  F#m7  E7              A7/9-   A7/13-   A7    
Spending every dime for a wonderful time?    


Dm         A7      Dm        Gdim       Dm    A7    
If you're blue and you don't know where to go to,    
    Dm       Gdim       A7     Bm5-/7 A7                Dm   F#m  Bb9  A7    
Why don't you go where fashion sits?    Puttin' on the Ritz.    
Dm         A7       Dm    Gdim       Dm   
Different types who wear a day coat, 
             A7                   Dm            Gdim    A7   Bm5-/7 A7                 Dm    Bb    D7    
Pants with stripes and cutaway coat, perfect fits,         puttin' on the Ritz.    

Bridge one:    
Gm       A7     Fdim  A7    Dm    
Strolling up the avenue so happy,    
F           Dm7     Gm7     C7      F          Bb9        A9    
All dressed up just like an English chappie—very snappy!    
Dm         A7        Dm    Gdim    Dm        A7    
Come, let's mix where Rockefellers walk with sticks    
      Dm      Gdim    A7        Bm5-/7 A7                  Dm    Bb    D7    
Or 'um-ber-el-las' in their mitts,    puttin' on the Ritz.    

Bridge two:    
Gm         A7     Fdim     A7     Dm    
Dressed up like a million-dollar trouper,    
F      Dm7     Gm7       C7   F        Bb9   A9    
Trying hard to look like Gary Cooper—super-duper!    
Dm         A7       Dm     Gdim    Dm     A7    
You'll declare it's simply topping to be there     
    Dm        Gdim     A7      Bm5-/7  A7                    
And hear them swapping smart tidbits,     
                Dm     Bb9  A7/9-    
Puttin' on the Ritz,    
A9             Dm   Bb9 A7/9-  A9              Dm  Gm6   D6/9    
Puttin' on the Ritz,          puttin' on the Ritz!
