Ray Charles

Packed my bags im going away
I don't know where im going
Things are tough they awfully rough
but still im going
i got no rest i did my best and
oh im so tired
the pay was low the work was slow
and i got fired (dammit)
one day soon im gonna make a million
dollars of my own
and im comin home
"you better believe it"
when i get this million dollars of my own
