(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 start a new life You`ve been many things but Most of all, a good secretary to me And it`s times 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 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 more 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 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 have a new life Take a letter Maria Address it to my wife.......
