Take a Letter Maria - R. B. Greaves/Anthony Armstrong Jones

Take a Letter Maria
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
(Fades)
