In this scene from the 1964 movie Robin and the 7 Hoods, Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin try to teach Bing Crosby some “Style”
You’ve either got or you haven’t got style.
If you got it, you stand out a mile.
A flower’s not a flower if it’s wilted,
A hat’s not a hat till it’s tilted.
You either got or you haven’t got class.
How it draws the applause of the masses.
When you wear lapels like a swell, isn’t that swell,
You can pass any mirror and smile,
You either got, or you haven’t got,
Got or you haven’t got, got or you haven’t got style.
