Clean shirt, new shoes.

And I don't know where I am goin' to.


Silk suit, black tie.

I don't need a reason why.

'Cause every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man.


Gold watch, diamond ring.

I ain't missin' not a single thing.

Cufflinks, stick pin.

When I step out, I'm gonna do you in.




Top coat, top hat.

And I don't worry 'cause my wallet's fat.

Black shades, white glove.

Lookin' sharp and lookin' for love.
