Lyrics

The Chipmunks:
Different types who wear a day coat
Pants with stripes and cutaway coat
Perfect fits
Puttin' on the ritz

Dress up like a million-dollar trooper
Tryin' hard to look like Gary Cooper (super duper)
Come let's mix where Rockefellers
Walk with sticks or umbrellas
In their mitts
Puttin' on the ritz

Have you seen the well-to-do
Up and down Park Avenue
On that famous thoroughfare
With their noses in the air
High hats and arrowed 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

(Repeat)

Different types who wear a daycoat, pants with stripes
And cut away coat, perfect fits
Puttin' on the ritz
Puttin' on the ritz
Puttin' on the ritz
