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 »

You said before me met
That your life was awful tame
Well, I took you to a night club
And the whole band knew your name Oh
Well, baby, baby, baby

I've got news for you
Oh, somehow your story don't ring true
Well, I've got news for you

Well, you phoned me you'd be late
'Cause you took the wrong express
And then you walked in smiling
With your lipstick all a mess
Oh, let me say to you little mama

Wo, I've got news for you
Ah, your story don't ring true lil' girl
Yeah, I've got news for you

Oh, you wore a diamond watch
Claimed it was from Uncle Joe
When I looked at the inscription
It said love from Daddy-O
Oh, well baby, wo lil' girl, I wanna say

I've got news for you
Ah, if you think that jive will do
Let me tell you, oh

I've got news for you
Well, somehow your story don't ring true
Wo, I've got news for you
