Текст песни Ray Charles - Greenbacks

As I was walking down the street last nightA pretty little girl came into sightI bowed and smiled and asked her nameShe said, "Hold it bud, I don't play that game"I reached in my pocket, and to her big surpriseThere was Lincoln staring her dead in the eyesOn a greenback, greenback dollar billJust a little piece of paper, coated with chlorophyllShe looked at me with that familiar desireHer eyes lit up like they were on fireShe said, "My name's Flo, and you're on the right track,But look here, daddy, I wear furs on my back,So if you want to have fun in this man's land,Let Lincoln and Jackson start shaking hands."On a greenback, greenback dollar billJust a little piece of paper, coated with chlorophyllI didn't know what I was getting intoBut I popped Lincoln and Jackson, tooI didn't mind seeing them fade out of sight,I just knew I'd have some fun last night

Whenever you in town and looking for a thrillIf Lincoln can't get it, Jackson sure willOn a greenback, greenback dollar billJust a little piece of paper, coated with chlorophyllWe went to a nightspot where the lights were lowDined and danced, and I was ready to goI got out of my seat, and when Flo arose,She said, "Hold on daddy, while I powder my nose"I sat back down with a smiling face,While she went down to the powder placeWith my greenback, greenback dollar billJust a little piece of paper, coated with chlorophyllThe music stopped and the lights came on,I looked around and saw I was all aloneI didn't know how long Flo had been goneBut a nose powder sure didn't take that longI left the place with tears in my eyesAs I waved Lincoln and Jackson a last goodbyeOn a greenback, greenback dollar billJust a little piece of paper, coated with chlorophyll
