Satin Doll

Words & Music:

Duke Ellington, Billy Strayhorn and Johnny Mercer.


Dm7       G7    Dm7     G7

Cigarette holder, which wigs me.

Em7      A7      Em7   A7

Over her shoulder, she digs me.

Am9  D9    Am9    Dd9   C

Out cattin', that Satin Doll.


Baby, shall we go out skippin'?

Careful, amigo, you're flippin'.

Speaks Latin, that Satin Doll.



Gm7            C7            Gm7        C7b9        FM7  Gm7 Am7 Bbm7

She's nobody's fool; so, I'm playing it cool as can be.

     Am7              D7    Am7          D7b9          G7

I'll give it a whirl, but I ain't for no girl catching me.

G7    Dm7 D7



Telephone numbers, well, you know...

Doin' my rhumbas with uno.

And that 'un my Satin Doll.
