Satin Doll

Lyrics:Johnny Mercer
Music:Duke Ellington ,Billy Strayhorn

The song was publishe 1953.

Written in 1953, the song has been recorded countless times,
by such artists as Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, 101 Strings, Terry Callier,
and Nancy Wilson.
Its chord progression is well known for its unusual use of chords
and opening with a ii-V-I turnaround.

Johnny Mercer was often asked to write lyrics to already popular songs.
The lyrics to "Satin Doll" were written after the song was already
a hit in its instrumental version.
Ellington used "Satin Doll" as the closing number at most of his concerts.



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.
