About This Little Girl of Mine

"This Little Girl of Mine" is a rhythm and blues single written and released as a single by Ray Charles in 1955 on the Atlantic label. "This Little Girl of Mine" played off "This Little Light of Mine", much like the previous "I Got a Woman" and the later "Hallelujah I Love Her So" played off other classic gospel hymns. And much like those songs, replaced sacred lyrics with secular blues lyrics with doo-wop call and response harmonies. The song was the B-side to Charles' number-one R&B single, "A Fool for You", and was a charted hit on its own, peaking at number nine on the chart. The tune was re-made to top 40 pop status in 1958 by The Everly Brothers. It should not be confused with the 1981 Gary U. S. Bonds hit "This Little Girl."

Well-a, oh yeah
Well-a, oh yeah
Oh yeah
Oh yeah

Do you know that this little girl of mine
I want you people to know
This little girl of mine
I take her everywhere I go

One day I looked at my suit
My suit was new
I looked at my shoes
and they were too

And that's why I, I, I, I
Oh, I love that little girl of mine
Oh, do you know that this little girl of mine
Makes me happy when I'm sad

This little girl of mine
Loves me, even when I'm bad
She knows how to love me right down to her teeth
If she does any wrong, you know she keeps it from me

And that's why I, I, I, I
Oh, I love that little girl of mine

Do you know that this little girl of mine
Called me last night about eight
This little girl of mine
Told me that we had a date

She said that she'd meet me at a quarter to nine
Believe it or not, but she was right on time
And that's why I, I, I, I
Oh, I love that little girl of mine

Do you know that this little girl of mine
Knows how to dress so neat
This little girl of mine
Stops the traffic on the street

When the fellas start whistling, well I don't mind
I can't blame them, 'cause she is fine
And that's why I, I, I, I
Oh, I love that little girl of mine

And that's why I, I, I, I
Oh, I love that little girl of mine

Ray Charles

Ray Charles Robinson (September 23, 1930 – June 10, 2004) was an American musician known as Ray Charles (to avoid confusion with champion boxer Sugar Ray Robinson.) He was a pioneer in the genre of soul music during the 1950s by fusing rhythm and blues, gospel, and blues styles into his early recordings with Atlantic Records. He also helped racially integrate country and pop music during the 1960s with his crossover success on ABC Records, most notably with his Modern Sounds albums. While with ABC, Charles became one of the first African-American musicians to be given artistic control by a mainstream record company.Frank Sinatra called Charles “the only true genius in show business.” more »
