The Lyrics

A long, long time ago
I still remember those gala shows
When men would wear their suits so bold
And ladies dressed in gowns of gold
But now it seems the times have changed
The dress code's lost, it's rearranged
From casual wear to flip-flops strange
The old traditions seem estranged

So bye, bye to the black and white tie
Drove my limo to the ball but the dress code was dry
And them good old boys were drinkin' vodka and wine
Singin', "This'll be the day that fashion dies
This'll be the day that fashion dies"

Did you write the book of style
And do you have faith in the bowtie's smile?
If the fashion tells you so
Now do you believe in formal shows?
And can you teach me how to dress real fine?
Six-inch heels and a gown that shines
Well, I know that you're in love with chic design
'Cause I saw you on the runway line

Bye bye to the black and white tie
Drove your limo to the ball but the dress code was dry
And them good old boys were drinkin' vodka and wine
Singin', "This'll be the day that fashion dies
This'll be the day that fashion dies"

Now, for twenty years, we've been on our own
And modern styles have really grown
But that's not how it used to be
When the ballroom was so grand and free
Oh, and while Mark Zuckerberg was looking pleased
The fashion world was being teased
The bloggers posted, but they were not pleased
The day the dress code met its freeze

Blindin' velvet in a ballroom swelter
The celebrities wore whatever they felt
The designers tried to take the stage
But their pleas were met with doubtful rage
As the stylists read their fashion news
With every change, they were confused
The classic look now felt abused
No more tuxedos and shiny shoes

And now we're singing, bye, bye to the black and white tie
Drove our limos to the ball, but the dress code was dry
And them good old boys were drinkin' vodka and wine
Singin', "This'll be the day that fashion dies
This'll be the day that fashion dies"

We were singing, bye, bye to the black and white tie
Drove our limos to the ball, but the dress code was dry
And them good old boys were drinkin' vodka and wine
Singin', "This'll be the day that fashion dies
This'll be the day that fashion dies"
