Whenever I'm away from Liza, water come to me eye
Every time I'm away from Liza, water come to me eye

Chorus:
Come back Liza, come back girl
Wipe the tear from me eye
Come back Liza, come back girl
Wipe the tear from me eye

When the evening starts to fall, water come to me eye
I need to hear my liza call, water come to me eye

Chorus

Standing here in the marketplace, water come to me eye
I need to see my Liza's face, water come to me eye

Chorus

Whenever I'm away from Liza, water come to me eye
Whenever I'm away from Liza, water come to me eye

Chorus (Repeat)
