CORNELIUS & BARNABY
Yes, New York
It's really us

BARNABY and CORNELIUS
Mrs. Molloy & Minnie
All the guests of Mr. Hackl are
Feelin' great and look spectacular

ALL
What a knack
There is to that
Acting like a born aristocrat
We got elegance
If you ain't got elegance
You can never ever carry it off

CORNELIUS
All who are
Well-bred agree
Minnie Fay
Has pedigree

MRS. MOLLOY
Exercise your wildest whims tonight
We are out with diamond Jims tonight

MINNIE
Could they be
Misleading us?

CORNELIUS & BARNABY
Silver spoons were used for feeding us
We got elegance
If you ain't got elegance

ALL
You can never ever carry it off
Middle class
Don't speak of it
Savoir Faire
We reek of it
Some were born with rags and patches but
We use dollar bills for matches and

MINNIE
Vanderbilt
Kowtows to us

CORNELIUS
J.P. Morgan scrapes and bows to us

ALL
We've got elegance
We were born with elegance

CORNELIUS
Have you noticed when I hold my cup
The saucer never moves

MRS. MOLLOY
And the way I keep my pinky up
Indubitably proves

All
That we got elegance
We got built in elegance
And with elegance...elegance...
Elegance...elegance...elegance
We'll carry it off!

We got elegance
If you ain't got elegance
You can never ever carry it off
We got Elegance...
