"Liberian Girl" as written by and Michael Joe Jackson....
(Naku penda piya-naku taka piya-mpenziwe)
(I love you too-I want you too-my love)

Liberian girl
You came and you changed my world
A love so brand new
Liberian girl
You came and you changed my world
A feeling so true

Liberian girl
You know that you came
And you changed my world
Just like in the movies
With two lovers in a scene
And she says
"Do you love me"
And he says so endlessly
"I love you, Liberian girl"

(Naku penda piya-naku taka piya-mpenziwe)
(I love you too-I want you too-my love)

Liberian girl
More precious than any pearl
Your love so complete
Liberian girl
You kiss me then,
Ooh, the world
You do this to me
Liberian girl
You know that you came
And you changed my world
Just like in the movies
With two lovers in a scene
And she says
"Do you love me"
And he says so endlessly
"I love you, Liberian girl"

(Naku penda piya-naku taka piya-mpenziwe)
(I love you too-I want you too-my love)

Liberian girl
You know that you came
And you changed my world
I wait for the day
When you have to say
"I do"
And I'll smile and say it too,
I love you, Liberian girl, all the time

(Girl)
I love you liberian girl, all the time
(Girl)
I love you liberian girl, all the time
(Girl)
I love you liberian girl, all the time
(Girl)
I love you
I love you baby
(Girl)
I want you
I love you baby
(Girl)
Ooh! I love you baby, I want you baby, ooh!
(Girl)

    General CommentUntil you realized that he was singing about a girl fron the small South African republic of Liberia and not an actual librarian?

    General CommentAs a child I always pictured Michael serenading a librarian in a library and her probably saying 'SHHHH! No talking!' but then taking all her clothes off anyway. Probably a library in a foreign country.

    General CommentOooh... This song is a lot of things. It's sexy, it has a beautiful exotic feel to it, and it's unique too. Seriously, how many times have you heard a sweet pop song about a girl from Liberia? The answer is not very many times.

    General CommentThis song is dedicated to elizabeth taylor, which means that elizabeth taylor is "Liberian Girl".

    General CommentThis is one of my favourite MJ songs due to being half Liberian. Whilst the song is dedicated to Elizabeth Taylor I don't think the song is about her it wouldn't make much sense.
