Ray Charles Lyrics


Ray Charles has the distinction of being both a national
treasure and an international phenomenon. He started out
from no where; years later finds him a global entity.

Hundreds of thousands of fingers have hit typewriter and
word processor keyboards telling and retelling his story
because it is uniquely American, an example of what we like
to think is the best in us and of our way of life.

The Ray Charles story is full of paradoxes, part and parcel
of the American Dream.Rags to riches. Triumph overcoming
tragedy. Light transcending More...

Not the Ray Charles you're probably thinking of! | Reviewer: Marc
    ------ About the song Fifty Nifty United States performed by Ray Charles

I learned this song in... was it 2nd grade? I wanted to sing it to my granddaughters but found I'd forgotten the tune in the middle ('round about Massachusetts), so I Googled it and found that it was credited to Ray Charles. Naturally I was a bit surprised - it doesn't really seem like his style - and, sure enough, it's a different guy. Here's his Wikipedia page:

    ------ About the song I Can't Stop Loving You performed by Ray Charles

I recently lost my wife of over 35 years and I have played this song over and over again. This is truly a song for anyone who has lost a love one. It tells the story of true love. Every line tells a different story about true feelings. But the lines that says "they said that time heals a broken heart but time has stood still since we have been apart" speaks to the essence of my soul. Ray was one of a kind that cannot be duplicated.

    ------ About the song Fifty Nifty United States performed by Ray Charles

What a beautiful, exceptional, and educational song. It really touches my heart as I often sing it to my infants, in hopes of them becoming history experts. So nifty, but not at all thrifty! I love America. God bless!

    ------ About the song Fifty Nifty United States performed by Ray Charles

I'm 28 years old and learned this song back sometime before 5th grade. I don't remembered the teacher who taught my class this song. Heck, I don't even remember what grade I was in when I learned it but I do remember this song. I've used it my whole life. Even through out my entire college career, while taking a midterm or final, I'd find myself singing this song to help me answer questions on the test. This is a great song to help someone remember the names of the United States forever.

    ------ About the song Fifty Nifty United States performed by Ray Charles

Fifty Nifty United States is the song we are learning at school. I liked how it go but I didn't know how to sing it and I didn't know the words so I practiced and practiced and this was a miracle that I know to sing it by sitting on the bus. Thanks to my memory I learned how to sing the song.


I just learned this song today | Reviewer: Star

I'm in 5th grade. My music teacher was joking around and said "okay put the papers down. We are going to sing it without looking at the words." Then we laughed. So I'm going to try to memorize the whole song to amaze him :D

I remember learning this song in grade school, but forgot the beginning and end of the song; only really remembered most of the alphabetical order for the states. I still tend to get mixed up with the M's and the N's.
