Satin Doll -- Duke Ellington & His Orchestra, ft. Ella Fitzgerald (1949)









Cigarette holder which wigs me
over my shoulder, he digs me
Out cattin' my satin doll
Baby, shall we go out steppin', careful, amigo, you're flippin'
Speaks Latin, my satin doll

He's nobody's fool and I'm playing it cool as can be
I'll give it a whirl but I ain't for no boy catching me, swich-e-rooney
Telephone numbers well you know, I'm doing my rumbas with uno
And that'n my satin doll

Telephone numbers well you know,
I'm doing my rumbas with uno
And that'n my satin doll, and that'n my satin doll
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
And that'n my satin doll, what a doll?
He is my satin doll
I had the craziest dream

Songwriters
ELLINGTON, DUKE
