Wegwezen, nietsnut!

The Genius, die naar ik net gelezen heb, op de twee eerste buitengaatse Engelse radiostations – Caroline en Atlanta – de muzikale aftrap gedaan heeft (op de plaat dan). Karig vertegenwoordigd in de Zwarte Lijst, ook alweer vanwege embarras de choix.
Rs zijn de Raelettes, de vrouwenstemmen op veel van Ray Charles’ platen, R is de maestro zelf.

Rs: Hit the road Jack and don’t cha come back
No more no more no more no more
Hit the road Jack and don’t cha come back
No more

R: What’d you say?

Rs: Hit the road Jack and don’t cha come back
No more no more no more no more
Hit the road Jack and don’t cha come back
No more

R: Oh woman oh woman, oh you treat me so mean
You’re the meanest old woman that I’ve ever seen
But I guess if you say so
I’ll have to pack my things and go

Rs: That’s right
Hit the road Jack and don’t cha come back
No more no more no more no more
Hit the road Jack and don’t cha come back
No more

R: What’d you say?

Rs: Hit the road Jack and don’t cha come back
No more no more no more no more
Hit the road Jack and don’t cha come back
No more

R: Now baby, listen baby, don’t you treat me this way
Cause I’ll be back on my feet some day
Don’t care if you do, cause it’s understood
You ain’t got no money, you just a no good
Well I guess if you say so
I’ll have to pack my things and go (that’s right)

Rs: Hit the road Jack and don’t cha come back
No more no more no more no more
Hit the road Jack and don’t cha come back
No more

R: What’d you say?

Rs: Hit the road Jack and don’t cha come back
No more no more no more no more
Hit the road Jack and don’t cha come back
No more

Well, (don’cha come back no more)
Uh, what’d you say? (don’cha come back no more)
I didn’t understand you (don’cha come back no more)
You can’t mean that (don’cha come back no more)
Oh, now baby please (don’cha come back no more)
What you’re trying to do to me (don’cha come back no more)
