Song 14: That Sophisticated Thing

Inspired last night from playing around with substitutions in "Anthropology" for the usual Rhythm changes. This one's pretty much what it looks like: a smooth little tune for dancing.

That Sophisticated Thing

| Bb6 | Bb6 | D7 | D7 Ab7 | G7 | G7 | C7 | F#7 F7 |
| Bb6 | Bb6 | D7 | G7 | C7 | F7 | Bb6 | C7 F7 |
| Fm7 | Bb7 | Eb7 | Ab7 | D7 | G7 | C7 | F#7 F7 |
| Bb6 | Bb6 | D7 | G7 | C7 | F7 | Bb6 | F#7 F7 |


That sophisticated thing you do
With a glamor that wraps you up in the nines
From your head to your shoe

That articulated bounce in your heel
That springs you out and back home again
In a manner unreal

No glass slippers
To drop for all of these takers
Arrayed like this, you're quite the dish
For the gossiping melody makers

That solipticated, understated - oh, so complicated!
That sophisticated number you're doing on me
