Slumming On Park Avenue lyrics

Put on your slumming clothes and get your car
Lets go sightseeing where the high-toned people are
Come on, theres lots of fun in store for you
See how the other half lives on park avenue

Lets go slumming, take me slumming
Lets go slumming on park avenue

Let us hide behind a pair of fancy glasses
And make faces when a member of the classes passes

Lets go smelling where theyre dwelling
Sniffing evrything the way they do

Let us go to it, they do it
Why cant we do it too?
Lets go slumming, nose thumbing, on park avenue

[2nd chorus:]
Lets go slumming, take me slumming
Lets go slumming on park avenue

Where the social hearts for broadway lights are throbbing
And they spend their nights in smart cafes hobknobbing, snobbing

Come lets eye them, pass right by them
Looking down our noses as they do

Let us go to it, they do it
Why cant we do it too?
Lets go slumming, crumb bumming, on park avenue
