Putting on the style

Young man in a carriage, driving like he's mad
With a pair of horses he borrowed from his dad
He cracks his whip so lively to see his lady smile
But she know he's only putting on the style

    Putting on the agony, putting on the style
    That's what all the young folks are doing all the while
    And as I look around me, I'm very apt to smile
    To see so many people putting on the style

Sweet sixteen goes to Church just to see the boys
Laughs and giggles at every little noise
She turns this way a little, then turns that way a while
But everybody known she's only putting on the style

  * Refrain

Young man in a restaurant smokes a dirty pipe
Looking like a pumpkin that's only half-way ripe
Smoking, drinking, chewing-and thinking all the while
That there is nothing equal to putting on the style

  * Refrain

Young man just from college makes a big display
With a greart big jawbreak which he can hardly say
It can't be found in Webster's and won't be for a shile
But everybody know he's only putting on the style

  * Refrain

Preacher in the pulpit shouting with all his might
Glory Hallelujah-puts the people in a fright
You might think that Satan's coming up and down the aisle
But it's only the preacher putting on the style

  * Refrain

See the young executive in his charoal gray
Talking with some union men who've come to have their say
Sitting at his office desk and wearing a toothpaste smile
That's the executive putting on the style

  * Refrain

Congressman from Washington looking mighty slick
Wants to get elected and go back there right quick
Beats his breast and hollers and waves the flag a while
But we know he's only putting on the style
