"I Didn't Know About You" is a 1944 song composed by Duke Ellington, with lyrics written by Bob Russell.[1]

Alec Wilder wrote that it "works well as a song in [the] series of Ellington instrumentals with Russell lyrics. The main strain is the most melodic, vocally, of the three Russell wrote lyrics for."[2]
