Duke's Place

Duke's Place
music by Duke Ellington
lyric by Bill Katz, Ruth Roberts & Robert Thiele

Baby! Take me down to Duke's place.
Wildest box in town is Duke's place.
Love that piano sound in Duke's place.
Saxes do their tricks in Duke's place.
Fellas swing their chicks in Duke's place.
Come on, get your kicks in Duke's place...

You find yourself a seat and when you wanna eat,
You look around and yell, "Waiter!"

You fill your cup chock full of dreams and drink it up,
You're jetting along with your girlie, it's after three O'clock,
But, baby, it's early!

If you've never been in Duke's place,
Take your tootsies into Duke's place.
Life is in a spin in Duke's place...
