Maria Maria
Eagle-Eye Cherry; Santana Lyrics


Ladies and gents
Turn up your sound system
To the Sound of Carlos Santana
And the GMB (Surprada)
Ghetto people, from the Refugee Gang

Oh Maria, Maria
She reminds me of a West Side Story
Growing up in Spanish Harlem
She living the life just like a movie star

Oh Maria, Maria
She fell in love in East L.A.
To the sounds of the guitar, yeah
Played by Carlos Santana

Stop the looting, stop the shooting
Pick pocking on the corner
See as the rich is getting richer
The poorer is getting poorer

See me and Maria on the corner
Thinking of ways to make it better
In my mailbox there's an eviction letter
Somebody just said see you later

Ahora vengo mama chula, mama chula
Ahora vengo mama chula (East coast)
Ahora vengo mama chula, mama chula
Ahora vengo mama chula

Maria Maria (West coast)
She reminds me of a West Side Story
Growing up in Spanish Harlem
She's living the life just like a movie star

Oh Maria Maria
She fell in love in East L.A.
I said to the sounds of the guitar, yeah
Played by Carlos Santana

I said a la fella los colores
The streets are getting hotter
There is no water to put out the fire
Mi cosa la esperanza

See me and Maria on the corner
Thinking of ways to make it better
Then I looked up in the sky
Hoping of days of paradise

Ahora vengo mama chula, mama chula
Ahora vengo mama chula (North side)
Ahora vengo mama chula mama chula
Ahora vengo mama chula (South side)

Ahora vengo mama chula, mama chula
Ahora vengo mama chula (World wide)
Ahora vengo mama chula, mama chula
Ahora vengo mama chula (Open up your eyes)

Maria you know you're my lover
When the wind blows I can feel you
Through the weather
And even when we are apart
Still feels like we're together
Maria, yeah
She reminds me of a West Side Story
Growing up in Spanish Harlem
She's living the life just like a movie star

Oh Maria, Maria
She fell in love in East L.A
To the sounds of the guitar
Played by Carlos Santana

Puttin them up yo
Carlos Santana with the refugee gang
Wyclef
Jerry my dawg
Mr Santana
GMB
Yo Carlos, man you makin' that guitar cry

"Wishing It Was"
(feat. Eagle Eye Cherry)

Beauty and grace is what touches me most
Good time can put me in fear
Always feel safe when things are bad
So I cannot let you come near
It seems that I thrive on the dark side of things
I always feel alive when the death bell rings
Now you have come and bring out the tears in me
Pain never makes me cry, but happiness does
It's so strange to watch my life go by
Wishing it was
Wishing it was more like a fantasy
Where everyone surprises me
Wishing it was
This feeling won't last cause I cannot survive
I tell you I've been here before
When it's moving this fast
It's a matter of time
One of us walks out that door
It seems that I thrive on the dark side of things
I always feel alive when the death bell rings
Now you come and you bring out the tears in me
Give this some thought
And I'm sure you will know
This is the way it must be
Emotions will rise, emotions will flow
You bring out the tears in me
It's so strange to watch your life walk and where everyday
I've been burning the candle at both ends
And lied the truth I can't pretend
This is why I will not stay baby
Just like that I'm on my way. because no one seems to like to post lyrics in the edit.

There's something about Eagle Eye's voice that just soothes my soul. Accompany that with Santana's smooth guitar playing and you've got a superb combination. :)
