You drink your coffee, I sip my tea, And we're sitting here, playing so cool, Thinking, 'What will be, will be.' And it's getting kind of late now, Oh, I wonder if you'll stay now, Stay now, stay now, stay now, Or will you just politely say 'Goodnight'? I move a little closer to you, Not knowing quite what to do and I'm Feeling all fingers and thumbs, I spill my tea, oh silly me, It's getting kind of late now, I wonder if you'll stay now, Stay now, stay now, stay now, Or will you just politely say 'Goodnight'? And then we touch, much too much, This moment has been waiting for a long, long time, Makes me shiver, Makes me quiver, This moment I am so unsure, This moment I have waited for, Well is it something you've been waiting for, Waiting for too? Take off your eyes, Bare your soul, Gather me to you and make me whole, Tell me your secrets, Sing me the song, Sing it to me in the silent tongue. It's getting kind of late now, I wonder if you'll stay now, Stay now, stay now, stay now, Or will you just politely say 'Goodnight'?

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.
"Cigarettes And Chocolate Milk" describes a time in Rufus Wainwright's life when he found himself hungover and pounding chocolate milk to feel better. It didn't work, so he smoked a cigarette, which is when he realized his addictive personality could be a problem.
