Lyrics

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 you what happened then I packed some clothes And I walked out And I ain't coming 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 So, 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 That you'll always be close to me And was I wrong to work nights To try to build a good life All work and no play Has just cost me a wife [repeat CHORUS] When a man loves a woman It's hard to understand That she would find more pleasure In the arms of another man Maria, I never really noticed Just how sweet you are to me It just so happens I'm free tonight Would you like to have dinner with me [repeat CHORUS 2x] Whoa, yeah Take a letter, Maria Whoa, yeah....
