What He Said


Now, I could have been a doctor
Helping the sick
And I could have been a lawyer
But you know that ain't my stick
'coz I feel so bad
If a patient didn't do well
And I feel just as bad
To leave a client in jail

And that is why
That's why I chose
I chose to sing the blues

Now a man has a lot
That he could present
Just to think I could have been
But I can't understand
What politicians say
So I wanna talk to you
In my own little way

And that is why (that is why)
That's why I chose (that's why I chose)
I chose to sing the blues

-- Ray Charles, "I Choose to Sing the Blues
