Lyrics

The song has lyrics, but no game uses them.

Clean shirt, new shoes
And I don't know where I am goin' to.
Silk suit, black tie (black tie),
I don't need a reason why.

They come runnin' just as fast as they can
Cuz every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man.

Gold watch, diamond ring,
I ain't missin' not a single thing.
And cufflinks, stick pin,
When I step out I'm gonna do you in.

They come runnin' just as fast as they can
Cuz every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man.

Top coat, top hat (ah ha!),
I don't worry cuz my wallet's fat.
Black shades, white gloves,
Lookin' sharp and lookin' for love.

They come runnin' just as fast as they can
Cuz every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man.
