R.b Greaves – Take A Letter, Maria lyrics

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 ya what happened then.
I packed some clothes and I walked out.. And I ain't goin' back again.

Chorus
So take a letter Maria.. Address it to my wife
Say I won't be coming home.. Gotta start a new life
Oh 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 time 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
So take a letter Maria.. Address it to my wife
Say I won't be coming home.. Gotta start a new life
Take a letter Maria.. Address it to my wife
Send a copy to my lawyer, gotta have a new life

When a man loves a woman, it's hard to understand
That she would find 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?

So take a letter Maria.. Address it to my wife
Say I won't be coming home.. Gonna start a new life
Ohhhh, Take a letter Maria.. Address it to my wife
Send a copy to my lawyer.. Gonna have a new life
Take a letter Maria.. Address it to my wife
Say I won't be coming home.. Fade out
