lyrics

This is the season of the skirt and the wedding ring
Fashion model on the runway with the next new thing
People stop and they stare, and it’s not just her hair
She’s got on a dress that no one else could wear
They call that style…

Now take a walk by the river and the sunset fire
Brooklyn Bridge a tapestry aloft on wire
You could say it’s just a way to get from here across the bay
But the walking there sure feels so fine and gay
It’s got style…

When the years pass by we will stop and sigh
For the girl in the blue and her stiletto shoes
And the bridge lifted high into next century’s sky
They had style…

It’s 1913 now they’re putting up the Woolworth tower
Slender arches and filigree as white as flour
No its grandeur won’t last, it’ll soon be overpassed
But tonight it glows like something right and blessed
It’s got style…

And on the TV there’s Sinatra and there’s Fred Astaire
You can almost tell the year just by the clothes they wear
But there’s something in the way they strike a pose or what they say
That is far beyond a year or just a day
Man they’ve got style…

When the years have passed what of all this will last?
There’s no way to know what only the years will show
And there’s no master plan, you just do it the best you can
Do do do do do do do do do, do it in your style
Do it in your style…
