I'm Just a Lucky So and So
Duke Ellington; Louis Armstrong Lyrics


As I walk down the street
Seems everyone I meet
Gives me a friendly hello
I guess I'm just a lucky so and so

The birds in every tree
Are all so neighborly
They sing wherever I go
I guess I'm just a lucky so and so
If you should ask me the amount
In my bank account
I'd have to confess that I'm slippin'
But that don't worry me, confidentially
I've got a dream that's a pippin'

And when the day is through
Each night I hurry to
A home where love waits, I know
I guess I'm just a lucky so and so

And when the day is through
Each night I hurry to
A home where love waits, I know
I guess I'm just a lucky so and so
I'm just a lucky, lucky so and so

LETRA.- As I walk down the street
Seems everyone I meet
Gives me a friendly hello
I guess I'm just a lucky so and so

The birds in every tree
Are all so neighborly
They sing wherever I go
I guess I'm just a lucky so and so

If you should ask me the amount
In my bank account
I'd have to confess that I'm slippin'
But that don't worry me, confidentially
I've got a dream that's a-pippin'

And when the day is through
Each night I hurry to
A home where love waits, I know
I guess I'm just a lucky so and so

4. Reason for Inclusion 
Of course, a huge fan of Louis' voice, and I think it's interesting how his vocals are, in a way, dueling with Duke's piano, though it's really peaceful. It's kinda blues-y in the way Duke answers Louis sometimes.
