Charles, Ray - The Girl Friend Lyrics

My girl's the kind of girl
For steady company.
It's steady company
That I prefer.
When in the Charleston dance
I want to bump a knee,
I want to bump a knee
With her.
Homely wrecks appeal
When their checks appeal,
But she has sex appeal.
Yes, sir!
Isn't she cute?
Isn't she sweet?
She's gentle
And mentally nearly complete.
She's knockout,
She's regal
Her beauty's illegal.
She's the girl friend!
Take her to dance!
Take her to tea!
It's stunning
How cunning this lady
Can be.
A look at this vision
Will cause a collision.
She's the girl friend!
She is smart,
She's refined.
How can she be real?
She has heart,
She has mind.
Hell, the girl's ideal!
Isn't she cute?
Isn't she sweet?
An eyeful you'd die full
Of pleasure to meet.
In my funny fashion
I'm cursed with a passion
For the girl friend!

He's very short on looks
But long on decency.
He's long on decency,
He's very tame.
But he has made an awful hit with me since he
A hit with me, since he first came.
I have seen so well
He won't screen so well.
He's game!
Isn't he cute?
Isn't he sweet?
He's gentle and mentally
Nearly complete.
He's warm as
An oven.
He knows how
To love an'
I'm the girl friend!

Take her to dance!
Take her to tea!
It's stunning
How cunning this lady
Can be.
She ain't got
No culture.
She's keen as
A vulture.
She's the girl friend!

He is smart,
He's refined.
How can he be real?
He has heart,
He has mind.
Hell, the boy's ideal!

Isn't she cute?
Isn't she sweet?
An eyeful you'd die full
Of pleasure to meet.
In my [his] funny fashion
I'm [he's] cursed with a passion
For the girl friend.

    Erotic sensations tingle my spine

    I cannot forget your soft breaths
    Panting excitedly with my hands around your neck

  46. Brandy Webb

    Yes you got a woman. An already married out dated woman. Just like she has an all WOMAN side piece. 👵👵 Be true to yourself and stop all this wannabe bs. You gone fuck around and catch an accidental ass whoopin. Dude do you have asthma? Do you want breathing problems cause im going to cave your chest in. Im not lying. Im not threatening you. The game you playing is detrimental to your health. I see you in the ICU. Stop the harassment.

    I got a woman, way over town
    That's good to me, oh yeah

    She saves her lovin', early in the mornin'
    Just for me, oh yeah
    She saves her lovin', early in the mornin'
    Just for me, oh yeah
    She saves her lovin', just for me
    Ah, she, loves me, so tenderly
    I got a woman, way over town
    That's good to me, oh yeah

    She's there to love me
    Both day and night
    Never grumbles or fusses
    Always treats me right

    Is right there, now, in her home

    I got a woman, way over town

    detonador De esquerdistas

    Pois eu estou começando a ouvir Ray Charles e, gostando muito de ouvir Jazz. Não tinha parado para ouvir, mas é bom, principalmente se estiver em um encontro romântico em um restaurante ou um bar. Nunca é tarde para apreder a gostar de outros ritmos.

  93. Smart Rapper

    Who the hell thumbs'd this down!?!??!??!?! Simpletons.

  94. Roberto_A_Pro AAA

    When you don't understand the complete lyrics (I don't speak English very well) but this music make me feel in the sky.
