Cigarette holder which wigs me Over her shoulder, she digs me. Out cattin' that satin doll. Baby, shall we go out skippin? Careful, amigo, you're flippin', Speaks Latin that satin doll. She's nobody's fool so I'm playing it cool as can be. I'll give it a whirl but I ain't for no girl catching me, Switch-a-rooney! Telephone numbers well you know, Doin' my rhumbas with uno And that 'in my Satin Doll. By Duke Ellington, Billy Strayhorn and Johnny Mercer.
