Nina Simone – Satin Doll lyrics

(1953) Billy Strayhorn, Johnny Mercer, Duke Ellington

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,

Telephone numbers well you know,
Doing my rhumbas with uno
And that'n my satin doll.
