Baby! take me down to Duke's Place,
wildest box in town is Duke's Place
Love that piano sound in Duke's Place.

You're jetting along with your girlie
It's after three o'clock, but baby, it's still early!
If you've never been to Duke's Place,
take your tootsies into Duke's Place
Life is in a spin in Duke's Place
