Puttin on the Ritz - Just for You

Puttin on the Ritz - Just for You
Remember when I used to be dead broke, and everyone laughed cause my dreams were a big joke? Well I married a rich fellow and I’m rolling in dough. Now I’m puttin on the ritz – it’s time for my show.
Visiting the old neighborhood, I’m sure feeling grand, showing off my chauffeured Rolls Royce just because I can. Watch me strut ‘cause I’ve been blessed by Lady Luck; while you’re still frying chicken for a measly buck.
Oh, forgive me for I don’t always like to gloat; but do check out my genuine animal print fur coat. It’s no secret that Neiman Marcus is my main go-to store, providing me with designer hats, purses, shoes, and more.
As for my fabulous make-up, make-over, and hairdo, well they cost much more than you earn in a month or even two. I see you’re ogling my sparkling jewelry and accessories, Dahling, they were purchased exclusively from Tiffany’s.
Like leading ladies, Lombard, Rogers, Garbo, and Garland, I ball room dance and jive to Callaway, Ellington, and Armstrong. My oh my, indeed this lifestyle can make one become so giddy, while gliding and sliding to these tunes can be quite heady.
I know jealousy is considered really uncouth and uncool, but in your case, Sweetie, go ahead, it’s actually okay to drool. Oh please note, my dear, I’m only passing through, from Lenox Avenue back home to hoity-toity Park Avenue.
So for now, I'm here puttin on the ritz - just for you!
