Juanita Lyrics - Iron Maiden

Review The Song (3)



(S.Barnacle/D.O'Neil)

Yeah it cost me a bundle
Trying to track you down
It's true
Yeah and it's the truth
I'm looking from town to town for you
You know you never offered much security
Do you know I'm gonna get you back?
You just wait and see

I'm never goin' back Juanita
I know you never got my call
I'm never goin' back Juanita
Never at all

Year I'm spending a long time
Trying to work it out for true
Yeah it's such small crime
sponsored links
Thirsting over you
Living in a Chelsea flat
Seems so lonely now
I just know I gotta get you back
I just don't know how

I'm never goin' back Juanita
I know you never got my call
I'm never goin' back Juanita
Never at all

(repeat)

Yeah I just got to tell you
I'm gonna leave it up to you
Yeah what more can I say?
What more can I do?
Living in a Chelsea flat
Seems so lonely now
I just know I gotta get you back
I just don't know how

I'm never goin' down on Juanita
Never gonna make that call
Never goin' down on Juanita
Never at all
I'm never goin' down on Juanita
Never gonna make that call
Never goin' down on Juanita
Two fingers at all
I'm never goin' back Juanita
Never goin' down on you Juanita
I'm never goin' back Juanita ...
(repeat)

I dont know how Andy the previous reviewer worked out that a guy called John was looking for a senorita who was living on welfare with her family..Perhaps Andy was listening to another song?

Anyway, Juanita is a cover song by Iron Maiden on the B side of their 1986 single Stranger in a Strange Land.
The original was performed by Marshall Fury who comprised off Nicko McBrain (Drums), Derek O'Neil (Guitar),Andy Barnett (Guitar)& Steve Barnacle (Guitar)

At the end of the 1985 World Slavery Tour, Iron Maiden took 6 months off, when Nicko McBrain's frustration of not playing after winding down from an extensive Maiden tour and looking at a six month break, drove him to rent a rehearsal studio and invite Adrian Smith along to jam. The two invited more friends including: Dave Colwell (the one who wrote "Reach Out"), Andy Barnett as well as Martin Connoly, a friend of McBrain's who also played in Marshall Fury. Both Colwell and Barnett helped write "That Girl" during this project and it was later used with FM.

McBrain arranged two gigs one under the name The Entire Population of Hackney and the other under the name The Sherman Tankers. The audience recording called The Entire Population of Hackney was taken from the first show; Bruce Dickinson, Dave Murray & Steve Harris joined the band on stage only for the encores.Their set includes songs from all the members and some covers from Bob Seger and ZZ Top.

The result of this short break from Iron Maiden was that three of the songs featured in the setlist would be later used on two Iron Maiden singles. "Reach Out" featured on Wasted Years and "Juanita" and "That Girl" featured on Stranger in a Strange Land.

Juanita | Reviewer: Andy | 9/13/07

This is one of Maidens best songs. The lyrics is about a senorita from probably South America. You can understand that she has come to London with her parents and siblings. They probably survived on wellfare in the beginning.
A man is together with her, probably called John or something. He is living in a Chelsea flat (London). She is then leaving him and he gets pissed. With tears in his eyes he goes out to look for his beautyfull senorita and and looks in one town after another.
He does not find her and therefor he says the things he says in the song.
It is a good riff in the song and more of a straight forward type of rock that most guys like. Good one from Maiden!
