    Default Liberian Girl (Official video)


    Michael Jackson's "Liberian Girl" music video featuring Jackson's popular friends waiting for him to show up on set.

    This song of gratitude for the existence of a loved one was written and composed by Michael Jackson. His producer Quincy Jones wanted him to write most of the songs for the Bad album, and he did, composing 8 of the 10 tracks. Jones was amazed at the range of Jackson's songwriting, and was very impressed that he came up with this unusual track. The song finds Jackson singing about a special girl from the African nation of Liberia, and it opens with the South African female singer Letta Mbulu saying the Swahili phrase "Naku penda piya-naku taka piya-mpenziwe," which translates to "Love you too. I want you too, my love." There was some geographic liberty here, as Swahili is not spoken in Liberia


    Lyrics: (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)
