On the avenue (the lady is seen)
Lyrics
On the avenue
© 2006 Bruce Mills (ASCAP)

On the avenue
The lady is seen
Riding back and forth
In a black limousine
She stops at Cartier
To ask for the time -
Down on the old avenue -
The lady - she's looking real fine

She walks her Bouvier
In Gramercy Park -
Then it's back to the Ritz Hotel
Just before dark
Up on floor twenty-two -
From a Royal Suite view
The lady looks down -
Just to see / just to see down / down the old avenue

Chorus:
She's always fashionably late
For cocktails at eight - and -
For dinner at ten or eleven
But she's worth the wait because
When she arrives - all the guys are in heaven

On the avenues
The lady's been seen -
Sometimes in London or Paris or Rome
In a fancy museum -
But, she likes Bergdorf's and Sak's and Katz's
And even old Saint Patrick's
When she's back in Manhattan -
The lady she's feeling at home

You'll see here everywhere
Even in Vanity Fair
She's the belle of the ball
Down at Carnegie Hall -
And even Broadway and the Metropolitan
Opera know -
She's going to be a star someday -
In a Paramount picture show

Some people say that the Plaza Athenée has a better view -
But the lady prefers her place on the old avenue

Chorus:
She's always fashionably late
For cocktails at eight - and -
For dinner at ten or eleven
But she's worth the wait because
When she arrives - all the guys are in heaven

Oh - she's sophisticated - educated
Sometimes very complicated
Somewhat shy and understated -
Sure she might be over-rated
But down on the avenue
Down on that old avenue
All along the avenue -
The lady's looking real fine
