(Feat. Carlos Santana)

[Intro: Wyclef]
You Are Now Listening To The Sounds Of Carlos Santana And G & B (Ghetto And Blues) From The Refugee Camp

[Chorus:]
Oh Maria, Maria She Reminds Me Of A West Side Story Growing Up In Spanish Harlem She's Livin' Her Life Just Like A Movie Star. Oh Maria, Maria. She Fell In Love In East L.A. To The Sounds Of The Guitar Yeah, Yeah. Played By Carlos Santana. [Guitar Solo]

[Verse 1:]
Stop The Looting, Stop The Shooting, Pick Pockets On The Corner. See As The Rich Is Getting Richer The Poor Is Getting Poorer. Me And Maria On The Corner Thinking Of Ways To Make It Better In My Mailbox There's An Eviction Letter Somebody Just Said See You Later. [Carlos Speaking Spanish]

[Chorus:]
Oh Maria, Maria She Reminds Me Of A West Side Story Growing Up In Spanish Harlem She's Livin' Her Life Just Like A Movie Star. Oh Maria, Maria. She Fell In Love In East L.A. I Said To The Sounds Of The Guitar Yeah Yeah, Played By Carlos Santana

[Verse 2:]
I Said La Capella, Loca Lodus. The Streets Are Getting Hotter See There Is No Water To Put Out The Fire [Spanish Language]. Me And Maria On The Corner Thinking Of Ways To Make Ot Better Then I Look Up In The Sky Hoping For The Day Of Paradise. [Carlos Speaks Spanish]

[Bridge:]
Maria You Now You My Lover When The Wind Blows You Know I Can Feel You Through The Weather And Even When We Are Apart It Still Feels Like We're Together Maria, Maria

[Chorus]

[Carlos Santana Guitar Solo]
[Wyclef Speaks]
[Music Fades]
