Sophisticated Lady
Duke Ellington Lyrics

They say into your early life romance came
And in this heart of yours burned a flame
A flame that flickered one day and died away
Then, with disillusion deep in your eyes
You learned that fools in love soon grow wise
The years have changed you, somehow
I see you now

Smoking, drinking, never thinking of tomorrow, nonchalant
Diamonds shining, dancing, dining with some man in a restaurant
Is that all you really want?
No, sophisticated lady
I know, you miss the love you lost long ago
And when nobody is nigh you cry

Written by: Duke Ellington, Irving Mills, Mitchell Parish

My grandmother always listens to Duke Ellington when she is cleaning so I heard his music often growing up, but I do love his character on the show more because I did hear it as a kid. Plus anyone who likes musical history can actually learn a few things from Duke on the show, such as the reference to Sir Duke by Stevie Wonders or the dark joke about Buddy Holly's plane and the Day the Music Died

@Steven Bernstein Thank you for sending me to the live Art Blakey so much better than the album . :) Cheers

Steven Bernstein

Definitely one of the all-time great jazz go watch the video entitled monin with the art Blakey band make sure it's live with Lee Morgan playing.for one more of my all-time greatest jazz videos make sure you check out the Duke Ellington band with a live video mood indigo. The trumpet solo is the perfect example of capturing a perfectly-formed improvised jazz solo and should be seenby everyone who likes or is interested in jazz for the definition of a jazz solo
