Satin Doll
Duke Ellington Lyrics

Cigarette holder which wigs me over my shoulder, she digs me
Out cattin' my satin doll
Baby, shall we go out steppin'? Careful, amigo, you're flippin'
Speaks Latin, my satin doll

He's nobody's fool and I'm playing it cool as can be
I'll give it a whirl, but I ain't for no girl catching me, swich-e-rooney
Telephone numbers well you know; I'm doing my rumbas with uno
And that's my satin doll

Telephone numbers well you know; I'm doing my rumbas with uno
And that and my satin doll, and that and my satin doll
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
And that and my satin doll; what a doll
She is my satin doll
I had the craziest dream

For a video to be almost 60 years old the quality is amazing!

So true!
Did Duke do the arrangements for the orchestra?


@F0nkyNinja Thank you. I was thinking I see no microphones and the audio is superb and that explains it!

2:23 when the band comes back in and Duke is doing that gangster-ass dance. He knew this shit was hot.


60 years later and it’s still hot af, love this chart

Nope TellingNothing



This is definitely shot over an actual recording done for the broadcast, most big band stuff was recorded this way (especially for early big bands such as Ellington’s and Basie’s). Bass gives it away lol!
