Cigarette holder,    which wigs me, 

C#m7      F#7     C#m7      F#7
Over her shoulder,     she digs me; 

Am(V) B7      Fm7     Bb9   A6   Edim  Bm7   E7
Out  cattin',    that satin doll. 

Bm7        E7    Bm7     E7
Baby shall we go    out skippin'? 

C#m7      F#7  C#m7        F#7
Careful, amigo  --  you're flippin;.

Am(V)   B7   Fm7     Bb9   A6
Speaks Latin,   that satin doll. 


      Em7       A7          Em7        A7          DM7  Bm7  Em7  DM7
She's nobody's fool, so I'm playin' it cool as can be; 

     F#m7       B7          F#m7         B7            E7   Bm7-5
IŽll give it a whirl, but I ainŽt for no girl catchinŽ me -- 


Bm7       E7      Bm7       E7
Telephone number, well a you know, 

C#m7      F#7     C#m7      F#7
I'm doin my rumba with uno,

Am(V) B7   Fm7     Bb9   A6   Cdim    F#7
And that'n,    my satin doll.


Am(V) B7   Fm7     Bb9   A6   Bb9   A6
And that'n,    my satin doll.
