Hit the Road Jack and don'tcha come back
No more no more no more no more,
Hit the Road Jack and don'tcha come back
No more
What'd you say

Old woman old woman, oh you treat me so mean,
You're the meanest old woman that I ever have seen,
Well I guess if you say so
I'll have to pack my things and go (that's right)

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

Well ...
Uh, whud jou say?
I didn't understand you.
You can't mean that ...
Aw now Baby, Please.
What you tryin to do to me!?

"Hit the Road Jack" is a song written by rhythm and bluesman Percy Mayfield and first recorded in 1960 as an a cappella demo sent to Art Rupe.[1] It became famous after it was recorded by singer-pianist Ray Charles.
The song, which has a strong beat, is a brief, rather comic duet between a fed-up woman and her good-for-nothing man. He tries to wheedle her into letting him stay, but she will have none of it, "'cause it's understood: you ain't got no money, you just ain't no good."
It hit number one for two weeks on the Billboard Hot 100, beginning on Monday, October 9, 1961.[2] The song was also number one on the R&B Sides chart for five weeks and becoming Ray Charles' sixth number one on that chart.[3] The song is ranked #377 on the Rolling Stone magazine's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

Έτσι είναι, Βίκυ. Έχεις δίκιο και σωστή η παρατήρησή σου. Οι δημιουργοί πρέπει να αναφέρονται.
