Count Basie – I Didn't Know About You lyrics

I didn't Know About You
Count Basie
Music and Lyrics by Duke Ellington and bob Russell

I wen t around with my own little croud
The usual laughs, not often but loud
And in the world that I knew
I didn't know about you.
Chasing after the ring on the merry-go-round
Just taking my fun where it could be found
And yet what else could I do
I didn't know about you.
Darling, now I know
I had the loneliest yesterday;
Evry day
In your arms I know for once in my life;
I'm living
Had a good time evry time I went out
Romance was the thing I kidded about
How could I know about love
I didn't know about you.
