Game Number Nine (Ray Charles)

Y'all looka here... I said to my self late one night My line was gettin' rusty So I thought I'd try Game Number Nine 'Cause it had always been my trusty...You see... Game Number Nine was the one where I'd smile And said some real clever things Like..."Where you been girl all of my life, Hey!...You ought to hear me sing" Now Game Number Nine had never failed me It was tried, tested and true And Game Number Nine was in action As I worked my game on you...Like this... Now girl I don?t mean no harm...But you know... You seemed kind of dumb at first And I thought a Nine just might be too strong You giggled and smiled and you didn't talk too much But I knew that wasn't gon' last too long You started asking me about my employment And did I have any traveling plans And where did I spend most of my nights 'Cause you were lookin' for a full time man And there was so many things in life that you'd always wanted to do And of course a man with my intelligence it seemed to fit right nice with you Ah, you like that? Now girl, remember... Before to long you started askin' me about a pretty little ring you saw And I found myself downtown one day walking towards the jewelry store I said to the man "Hey!...I just want to look, 'cause I ain't ready to buy" And uh, just then you walked up behind me and you said "Can I please try it on for size?" Now it seemed like only yesterday That I worked Number Nine so sweet But it didn't turn out the way I planned it As I went down in defeat Oh I was scared...Oh, Oh Looka here... Now Nine had always been my best shot All my partners said it was tough They all knew about my Magic Nine But it was hard to copy my stuff Now maybe you can tell me honey Uh, just where Number Nine was weak Come on baby tell me, uh, before we go to sleep Now darling, I ain't lost a Game of Nine Since the year can remember when As I turned out the light you whispered to me... "I used a Number Ten" Yea you did, you know you did Ah hah, oh yea...
