Irving Berlin's When the Folks High-Up Do That Mean Low Down, featuring Bebe Daniels, Bing Crosby, and, all too briefly, June MacCloy.

Lenox Avenue is known
For doing the low down
But you'll find they're not alone
In doing the low down
Fifth Avenue's learning how
They had to fall
Fifth Avenue does it now
But that's not all

Whenever the folks high-up do that mean low down
There is no low down lower than that

Whenever the swells slow down and become low down
There is no low down lower than that

You may believe it or not
When they start getting hot
There is no Hottentot
That's hotter than that

So you can lay your dough down when they go low down
There is no low down lower than that
