"Liza" as written by and Joan Anita Barbara Armatrading....
I see you looking at me
I know we're from different sides of town
You've never traveled
And I've been all around
Hey
Let me take your hand
Hey hey yeah
From where I stand
You're in need of a friend
So let the good times roll
Let the good times roll

I see something in you
I see it, how come they don't
You're a good person
And they'll come around
Hey let me take your hand
Hey hey yeah yeah
I can see you change
You're in need of a friend
So let the good times roll
Let the good times roll
Let the good times roll
Let the good times roll

Everybody says
Don't hang around with Liza
She's from the wrong side of town
The part where folks live on welfare
The part where you find needles on the ground
It's the side where the kids hang out in gangs
And wear the hoodies
And the masks
To hide their face
If you make friends with a girl like that
Well it's a big disgrace

Everybody say
This that
This that
This that
This that

Hey Liza
I'd like a friend like you
Hey Liza
I think you're kind of cute
Hey Liza
I'm gonna make up my own mind
I'm gonna make up my own mind

I see you looking at me
I know we're from different sides of town
You've never traveled
And I've been all around
Hey Liza
Let me take your hand
Hey hey yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah
From where I stand
You're in need of a friend
So let the good times roll
Let the good times roll
Let the good times roll
Let the good times roll
