[intro] This song is about maria A close friend of mine Who lost herself in drugs She told me to wait for her But guess what... She never came back And I'm still waiting She told me:
[chorus] Wait 'til you hear from me Monday, Tuesday it won't be Wednesday, Thursday we will see If only you can wait baby
Wait 'til you here from me Friday use your fantasy Saturday you got over me If only you can wait baby
[verse 1] She was called maria and she really was a friend I remember when we were walking hand in hand She was telling me that she understands All the world and every thrill by taking little pills So she was trying everything and more Alcohol and speed, coke and weed and tried to score Tragedy: she didn't feel much better than before So she got away here quick to find a better kick
[bridge] Never let it - wanna find her Can't forget it - to remind her She's my sister - wanna tell her How I miss her - she told me
[b-chorus] Wait - don't call you've got to Wait 'til you hear from me Wait - that's all you've got to Wait...
[verse 2] When she arrived in the city of the stars Blinded by the lights, a burning in the heart She believed to play what she called her part A member of society to satisfy her dreams No one paid attention on her skills So she found crack is another way to fill The emptiness inside right now she got her thrill Guess, who gave his life away? she did it every day
[narration-part] Why did she throw her life away? Why did she say don't call just wait?
[c-part] If you wanna go to the city of stars Can you help me to find my girl maria She once was an actress and a beauty queen Then the drugs took over and made her mean I tried to stand by her side make her feel alright But she wished to get over to the other side And since I can't really get her out of my mind I'm asking you, won't you help me to find She told me

It really was so easy for Linda Ronstadt to score a hit with her Buddy Holly cover of "It's So Easy." She would sometimes change the lyric to: "It's so easy to have a hit, all you have to do is recycle 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.
