Lyrics

Have you seen the well-to-do
Up on Lennox Avenue
On that famous thoroughfare
With their noses in the air

High hats and coloured collars
White spats and fifteen dollars
Spending ev'ry dime
For a wonderful time

If you're blue and
You don't know where to go to
Why don't you go where Harlem sits

Spangled gowns upon the bevee of high browns
From down the levee
All misfits

That's where each and ev'ry Lulu-Belle goes
Ev'ry Thursday evening with her swell beaus
Rubbing elbows

Come with me and we'll attend
Their jubilee, and see them spend
Their last two bits

If you're blue and
You don't know where to go to
Why don't you go where Harlem sits

Spangled gowns upon the bevee of high browns
From down the levee
All misfits

That's where each and ev'ry Lulu-Belle goes
Ev'ry Thursday evening with her swell beaus
Rubbing elbows

Come with me and we'll attend
Their jubilee, and see them spend
Their last two bits

That's where each and ev'ry Lulu-Belle goes
Ev'ry Thursday evening with her swell beaus
Rubbing elbows
