  • Santa Maria, can you hear me
    I've got no reason to live
    They say I've been lucky
    But it's all relative

    Won't you make it easy
    I've got to erase all the pain
    They say it's behind me
    But it keeps coming back

    But if you knew, my love
    Then you would see, my love
    Never meant to interfere
    With all your plans
    And if you cannot see
    Why don't you come for me
    And escape me to the world of Politan

    Lo qu© la noche se hace
    A la maáana parece

    Policeman, please arrest me
    I'd rather live in a jail
    Than have to stay out here
    Where everything fails

    Won't you give me something
    I'll pay you awfully well
    I will reimburse you
    If you'll just make the deal

    But if you knew, my love
    Then you would see, my love
    Never meant to interfere
    With all your plans
    And if you cannot see
    Why don't you come for me
    And escape me to the world of Politan

    You gotta say, I'm an island in the Pacific
    As Miss O'Day would say, the view's terrific
    The more of the story is a doozy, dizzy parade

    You gotta say, I'm an island, oh, you can't fake it
    No, if everybody knew the way to make it
    The laurel and the glory would be taken, man, I'd be made Lyrics © OBO APRA/AMCOS
