Take a Letter Maria
Last night as I got home, about a half past ten There was the woman I thought I knew, in the arms of another man I kept my cool, I ain't no fool, let me tell you what happened then I packed some clothes and I walked out, and I ain't going back again [Chorus:] So take a letter Maria, address it to my wife Say I won't be coming home, gonna start a new life So take a letter Maria, address it to my wife Send a copy to my lawyer, gotta start a new life You've been many things but most of all a good secretary to me And it's times like this I feel you've always been close to me Was I wrong to work nights to try to build a good life All work and no play has just cost me a wife [Chorus] When a man loves a woman it's hard to understand That she would find more pleasure in the arms of another man I never really noticed how sweet you are to me It just so happens I'm free tonight, would you like to have dinner with me [Chorus] So take a letter Maria, address it to my wife Send a copy to my lawyer, gotta start a new life
