( words)

There are plenty of songs about hotels. The most famous ones are listed here:

Puttin' on The Ritz by Berlin Irving

This is not really about the Hotel Ritz, rather about the 'Ritzi' appearance.

Have you seen the well to do
Up and down Park Avenue on that famous thoroughfare
With their noses in the air?

High hats and narrow collars
White spats and fifteen dollars
Spending every 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 flits? Putting' on the Ritz
Spangled gowns upon the bevy of high browns
From down the levy, all misfits, putting' on the Ritz

That's where each and every lulu-belle goes
Every Thursday evening with her swell beaus
Rubbin' elbows

Come with me and we'll attend their jubilee
And see them spend their last two bits
Puttin' on the Ritz

Boys, look at that man puttin' on that Ritz
You look at him, I can't

If you're blue, and you don't know where to go to
Why don't you go where Harlem flits? Puttin' on the Ritz
Spangled gowns upon the bevy of high browns
From down the levy, all misfits, puttin' on the Ritz

That's where each and every lulu-belle goes
Every Thursday evening with her swell beaus
Rubbin' elbows

Come with me and we'll attend their jubilee
And see them spend their last two bits
Puttin' on the Ritz

Come with me and we'll attend their jubilee
And see them spend their last two bits
Puttin' on the Ritz

 

Procol Harum
Grand Hotel

Tonight we sleep on silken sheets
We drink fine wine and eat rare meats
On carousel and gambling stake
Our fortunes speed, and dissipate.
It's candlelight and chandelier,
It's silver plate and crystal clear.
The nights we stay at hotel grand

Tonight we dine at hotel ritz.
(a golden dish with every wish ).
It's mirrored walls, and velvet drapes,
Dry champagne, and bursting grapes.
Dover sole, and oeufs mornay,
Profiteroles and peach flambe,
The waiters dance on fingertips
The nights we dine at hotel ritz

One more toast to greet the morn
The wine and dine have danced till dawn
Where's my continental bride?
We'll continental slip and slide
Early morning pinch and bite -
(these french girls always like to fight)
It's serenade and sarabande,
The nights we stay at hotel grand
Les nuits qu'on passe à l'hotel grande.
