It worked because before anyone knew it, Sinatra, at least acting as if he had no recollection of trashing it earlier, had it delivered to Riddle and even favored using it as the opening track on the new album.
Furthermore, the song, not long before having been discarded like garbage, became the title track for the album.

These early drafts, as it were, include the bawdy "Just put your hand on it, baby, that's all," "slowly baby," and "isn't that better baby," all of which were discarded in favor of the Basie reference that is used on the record.
No doubt Sinatra made the right choice, not just because of his comment, "That record may get everyone here arrested" but because the spontaneous evolution of the ending led to what was just right.
