Additional verses, WATA COME A ME Y'EYE
(Come Back Liza; Water Come a Me Eye)

I still waiting home for you
Water Come a Me Eye
Heart is sore but waitin' too
Water Come a Me Eye.

When there's love the time go fast
Water Come a Me Eye
Time go slow when love is past
Water Come a Me Eye.

Listen when you hear me call
Water Come a Me Eye
Please don't cause my heart to fall
Water Come to Me Eye.
