IRVING BERLIN lyrics - What The Well-Dressed Man In Harlem Will Wear

IRVING BERLIN
"What The Well-Dressed Man In Harlem Will Wear"

[As sung in film:]

[Verse:]
There's a change in fashion that shows
In those Lenox Avenue clothes
Mister Dude has disappeared with his flashy tie
You'll see in the Harlem Esquire
What the well-dressed man will desire
When he's struttin' down the street with his sweetie-pie

[Refrain:]
Sun tan, shade of green
Or an olive drab color scheme
That's what the well-dressed man in Harlem will wear

Dressed up in O.D.'s
With a tin hat for overseas
That's what the well-dressed man in Harlem will wear

Top hat, white tie and tails no more
They've been put away till after the war

If you want to know
Take a look at Brown Bomber Joe
That's what the well-dressed man in Harlem will wear
