Update: Chord and Chorus Additions for "Latin Cat's Strut"

Post #145b
ORIGINAL SONG: "Satin Doll". Music written in 1953 by Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn, lyrics composed years later by Johnny Mercer. Recorded by Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, etc. The second verse of the original lyrics contain the words ... "Speaks Latin, my satin doll."  
PARODY COMPOSED: Giorgio Coniglio, July 2017, based on a limerick-medley on the same theme (post #138).

TECHNICAL NOTES: The call 'switcherooney' at the end of the chorus has become an indispensable part of the lyrics of this song which appears to switch keys, but was written to end in the key of C.
For ease of singing, I have transposed it up a half-octave. The present version also shows the embellishment of the chords (9th to 7th) at the end of each verse, and has a few other chord enhancements.
And a whole new version of the chorus (Parody slide #5) has been added.
