Class Will Tell

< instrumental opening > 
Your Ace is high, you catch the eye
and steal the heart as well . . .
you're the ballroom headline,
class will tell!
You have no wings
but you do things
no angel could excel . . .
When you're in the spotlight
class will tell!
A sentimental air, a continental flair,
the very essence of charm . . .
Your features represent the kind of ornament
I want to wear on my arm . . .
The likes of you,
the likes of me
would get on mighty swell . . .
You're the number one song
class will tell!
< instrumental close >
