Movie Lyrics | Stage Lyrics

A BOY LIKE THAT/I HAVE A LOVE

ANITA
A boy like that, --
Who’d kill your brother,
Forget that boy and find another!
One of your own kind--
Stick to your own kind!

A boy like that will give you sorrow--
You’ll meet another boy tomorrow!
One of your own kind,
Stick to you own kind!

A boy who kills cannot love,
A boy who kills has no heart.
And he’s the boy who gets your love
And gets your heart--
Very smart, Maria, very smart!

A boy like that wants one thing only,
And when he’s done he’ll leave you lonely.
He’ll murder your love; he murdered mine.
Just wait and see--
Just wait, Maria,
Just wait and see!

MARIA
Oh no, Anita, no--
Anita, No!

It isn’t true, not for me,
It’s true for you, not for me,
I hear your words--
And in my head
I know they’re smart
But my heart, Anita,
But my heart
Knows they’re wrong.
You should no better.

You were in love -- or so you said
You should know better---

I have a love, and it’s all that I have
Right or wrong, what else can I do?
I love him; I’m his,
And everything he is
I am, too.
I have a love and it’s all that I need,
Right or wrong, and he needs me too.
I love him, we’re one;
There’s nothing to be done,
Not a thing I can do
But hold him, hold him forever,
Be with him now, tomorrow
And all of the my life!

MARIA AND ANITA
When love comes so strong,
There is no right or wrong,
Your love is your life!
