Joe Gideon & The Shark – Kathy Ray lyrics

But before she left,
She told me about her life
How she'd a backing singer for the Eurythmics,
At mavee 1985.
But now I'm thinking,
This must be some kind of joke,
Since you wouldn't think to hear this from a stranger on
The avenues of harrow road.

She told me,
She hadn't always been "Kathy Ray",
She'd been given her name by a certain gentlemen way
Back in the day,
When she did her auditioning to be one of Ray Charles'
Girls.
And even though the audition hadn't gone very well;
She'd fluffed her lines, but Ray must have heard
Something that night,
For as she was about to leave, he turned to the band,
And the band looked at him, and this is what he said:

(Ooooh oooouuhh)
"Ladies and gentlemen, I give you,
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you miss Kathy Ray,
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you miss Kathy Ray,
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you miss Kathy Ray"

And now, she's so much older,
She's still got that look in her eye (the good one,
That is),
The young ones, have?pride?, ever since her boyfriend
Threw a drink in her face.

"Ladies and gentlemen, I give you miss Kathy Ray,
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you miss Kathy Ray,
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you miss Kathy Ray,
(Miss Kathy Ray)
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you miss Kathy Ray,"
