Lyrics verse:
HE'S THE PRINCE OF WALES
OF JIMTOWN,
THE EBONY FASHION PLATE,
USED TO BE
A CARELESS DRESSER,
BUT NOT OF LATE.
HE'S TAKING A WALK
IN JIMTOWN,
SWINGIN'
IN A JUBILEE WAY!
THE CROWD YELLS,
WHERE YOU GOIN'
BIG BOY?
AND HE FEELS THE URGE
TO SAY:

Chorus:
GOT A BRAN' NEW SUIT,
GOT A BRAN' NEW TIE,
GOT A BRAN' NEW TWINKLE
IN MY EYE.
DO YOU KNOW
THE REASON WHY?
GOT A BRAN' NEW GIRL,
AN' I WON'T DISPUTE
SHE'S THE REASON
I GOT A BRAN' NEW TIE
AN' A BRAN' NEW SUIT.
WHEN I'M WITH HER,
GOTTA LOOK MY BEST,
PUT ON MY TAN SHOES,
GRAY SPATS,
DOUBLE BREASTED VEST,
GONNA WEAR MY STICKPIN,
IT'S A TECLA PEARL,
WITH A BRAN' NEW TIE
AN' A BRAN' NEW SUIT,
AN' A BRAN' NEW GIRL!

Lyrics verse:
YESTERDAY,
THINGS WERE SO GLOOMY,
BUT TODAY,
YES SIR,
THEY'RE SHINING AND NEW.
OH, WHAT A CHANGE
HAS COME TO ME!
I'VE BEEN DUSTED
OFF THE SHELF,
I AM NOT MYSELF
WHAT A DIFF'RENT WORLD
I VIEW.

Chorus:
I SEE A NEW SUN
UP IN A NEW SKY,
AND MY WHOLE HORIZON
HAS REACHED A NEW HIGH!
YESTERDAY,
MY HEART SUNG A BLUE SONG,
BUT TODAY,
HEAR IT HUM
A CHEERY NEW SONG!
I DREAMED A NEW DREAM,
I SAW A NEW FACE,
AND I'M SPREADING SUNSHINE
ALL OVER THE PLACE
WITH A NEW POINT OF VIEW,
HERE'S WHAT GREETS MY EYE:
NEW LOVE,
NEW LUCK,
NEW SUN IN THE SKY!
