Duke Ellington, I didn’t know about you:
I ran around with my own little crowd
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

Frank Sinatra, Pennies from heaven:
You’ll find your fortune’s fallin’, baby, all over the town
Be sure, be sure that your umbrella is upside down
