Elegance lyrics

[Cornelius & Barnaby:]
Yes, New York
It's really us
Barnaby and Cornelius
[Mrs. Molloy & Minnie:]
All the guests of Mr. Hackl are
Feelin' great and look spectacular

[All:]
What a knack
There is to that
Acting like a born aristocrat
We got elegance
If you ain't got elegance
You can never ever carry it off

[Cornelius:]
All who are
Well-bred agree
Minnie Fay
Has pedigree

[Mrs. Molloy:]
Exercise your wildest whims tonight
We are out with diamond Jims tonight

[Minnie:]
Could they be
Misleading us?

[Cornelius & Barnaby:]
Silver spoons were used for feeding us

[All:]
We got elegance
If you ain't got elegance
You can never ever carry it off

[dance interlude]

[All:]
Middle class
Don't speak of it
Savoir Faire
We reek of it
Some were born with rags and patches but
We use dollar bills for matches and

[Minnie:]
Vanderbilt
Kowtows to us

[Cornelius:]
J.P. Morgan scrapes and bows to us

[All:]
We've got elegance
We were born with elegance

[Barnaby:]
I beheave like Walter Wally
When the streets are full of mud

[Mrs. Molloy:]
And the bluest Huckelberry isn't bluer than my blood

[Minnie:]
Have you noticed when I hold my cup
The saucer never moves

[Cornelius:]
And the way I keep my pinky up
Indubitably proves that

[All:]
We got elegance
We got built in elegance
And with elegance...elegance...
Elegance...elegance...elegance
We'll carry it off!

[All:]
We got elegance
If you ain't got elegance
You can never ever carry it off
We got Elegance...
