1956 American romantic musical comedy film
High Society - Well, Did You Evah! Lyrics


MIKE:
I have heard among this clan
You are called the forgotten man

DEXTER:
Is that what they're saying? Well, did you ever
What a swell party this is

MIKE:
And have you heard the story of
A boy, a girl, unrequited love

DEXTER:
Sounds like pure soap opera

MIKE:
I may cry

DEXTER:
Tune in tomorrow
What a swell party this is
What frills, what frocks

MIKE:
What broads!

DEXTER:
What furs, what rocks!

MIKE:
They're beautiful

DEXTER:
Why, I've never seen such gaity

MIKE:
Neither have I

DEXTER:
Its all just too, too exquis, really

MIKE:
This french champagne

DEXTER:
Domestic

MIKE & DEXTER:
So good for the brain

MIKE:
That's what I was going to say

DEXTER:
You know you're a brilliant fellow?

MIKE:
Why, thank you

DEXTER:
Drink up, chap
And please don't eat that glass, my friend
Have you heard about dear Blanche?
Got run down by an avalanche

MIKE:
No!

DEXTER:
Oh, don't worry, she's a game girl, you know
Got up and finished 4th

MIKE:
This kid's got guts

DEXTER:
Having a nice time? Grab a line

MIKE:
Have you heard that Mimsie Starr

DEXTER:
Oh, what now?

MIKE:
She got pinched in the Astor bar

DEXTER:
Sauced again, eh?

MIKE:
She was stoned

DEXTER:
Well, did you ever?

MIKE:
Never!

DEXTER & MIKE:
What a swell party this is!

MIKE:
It's great

DEXTER:
Ah, it's great

MIKE:
It's grand

DEXTER:
So grand

MIKE & DEXTER:
It's wonderland!
La da da da...

DEXTER:
We sing

MIKE:
Oh, we sing

DEXTER:
So rare

MIKE:
So rare

DEXTER & MIKE:
Like old Camembert
Like Baba au Rhum!

DEXTER:
Bababababum

MIKE:
Don't dig that kind of crooning, chum!

MIKE & DEXTER:
Have you heard, it's in the stars
Next July we collide with Mars?
Well, did you ever?
What a swell party, a swell party
A swellegant, elegant party this is!

DEXTER:
I drink to your health

MIKE:
Nah, lets drink to your wealth

DEXTER:
You're my bon ami

MIKE:
Hey, that's french

DEXTER:
Liberty

DEXTER & MIKE:
Fraternity
Have you heard, it's in the stars
Next July we collide with Mars?
Well, did you ever?
What a swell party, swell party
Swellegant, elegant party this is!
