I've Got News For You Lyrics

by Ray Charles

You said before we 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, baby

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, oh, oh
