The bridge, so high The bridge, so tall Here is where it started On the bridge The moon is big and yellow And the stars are all a' glow From the bridge, I see reflections In the waters far below
You kissed me for the first time here An' held me awfully tight And the bridge became our favorite place We came here often in the night
And one night while standing on the bridge Desire swept through us both Passion took us by the hand And showed us where to go
From the bridge we saw a meadow So we ran together there Where we found love together Our emotions filled the air
The bridge, so wide The bridge, so long Where once we stood together Tonight I stand alone
Tonight, while standing on the bridge My heart is beating wild To think that you could leave me here With our unborn child
My feet are moving slowly Closer to the edge Here is where it started And here is where I'll end it...

Michael Jackson's "Liberian Girl" opens with the South African female singer Letta Mbulu saying the Swahili phrase "Naku penda piya-naku taka piya-mpenziwe." There was some geographic liberty here, as Swahili is not spoken in the West African nation of Liberia.
