Ray Charles – I've Got News For You lyrics

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.

(Instumental - subdominant bridge)

(A section solo)

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.
