Serenade to an Old-Fashioned Girl Song Lyrics

Blue Skies Soundtrack - Musical, 1990
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music
Serenade to an Old-Fashioned Girl A night in June, a silv'ry moon
A falling star, a steel guitar
A plaintive tune

A love-sick boy, a heart a-whirl
A serenade to an old-fashioned girl

A perfect dream, a matchless pearl
A serenade to an old-fashioned girl

A lovely date, a half-drawn shade
A serenade to an old-fashioned girl

"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 narrow collars
White spats and lots of dollars
Spending every dime
For a wonderful time

Now, 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 who wear a daycoat
Pants with stripes and cutaway coat
Perfect fits
Puttin' on the Ritz

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

Come, let's mix where Rockefellers
Walk with sticks or "umberellas"
In their mitts
Puttin' on the Ritz

------ short instrumental break ------

Tips his hat just like an English chappie
To a lady with a wealthy pappy
Very snappy

You'll declare it's simply topping
To be there and hear them swapping
Smart tidbits
Puttin' on the Ritz

"I'll See You in C-U-B-A"

[1st verse:]
Not so far from here
There's a very lively atmosphere
Ev'rybody's going there this year
And there's a reason
The season opened last July
Ever since the U.S.A went dry
Ev'rybody's going there and I'm going, too
I'm on my way to

Cuba there's where I'm going
Cuba there's where I'll stay

Cuba where wine is flowing
And where dark-eyed Stellas
Light their fellers' panatellas
where all is happy
Cuba where all is gay

Why don't you plan a
Wonderful trip
To Havana
Hop on a ship
And I'll see you in C.U.B.A.

[2nd verse:]
Take a friend's advice
Drinking in a cellar isn't nice
Anybody who has got the price
Should be a Cuban
Have you been longing for the 'smile'
That you haven't had for quite a while?
If you have, then follow me and I'll show the way
I'm on my way to
