She moves like she don't care
Smooth as silk, cool as air
Ooh it makes you wanna cry
She doesn't know your name
And your heart beats like a subway train
Ooh it makes you wanna die

Ooh, don't you wanna take her?
Wanna make her all your own?

Maria, you've gotta see her
Go insane and out of your mind
Latina, Ave Maria
A million and one candle lights

I've seen this thing before
In my best friend and the boy next door
Fool for love and full of fire
Won't come in from the rain
She's oceans running down the drain
Blue as ice and desire

Don't you wanna make her?
Ooh, don't you wanna take her home?

Maria, you've gotta see her
Go insane and out of your mind
Latina, Ave Maria
A million and one candle lights

Ooh, don't you wanna break her?
Ooh, don't you wanna take her home?

She walks like she don't care
Walkin' on imported air
Ooh, it makes you wanna die

Maria, you've gotta see her
Go insane and out of your mind
Latina, Ave Maria
A million and one candle lights

Maria, you've gotta see her
Go insane and out of your mind
Latina, Ave Maria
A million and one candle lights

I had the biggest crush on Debbie when I was a testosterone fueled, horny teenager. Ah, those were good times.
Loved seeing her and her friends at MSG not performing but watching Pro Wrestling  :)
Great hook. 
Sorry, just a 5, too often played

BillG - more, deeper cuts just like this one please



Funny, it appears that this hit #1 in the UK.  I don't recall hearing it much.  Maybe only a "deep cut" on this side of the pond?
ABBA
Gosh, as of checking today...Debbie is 76 years on this rock...how the years fly by...
This is catchy, but also cheesy. Give me Heart of Glass anytime. I still gave it a 6 because I don't mind it. May raise it to 7 because now I find myself singing along.

I guess we know where Concrete Blonde came from...

Solid tune.
This really showcases just how strong her voice was.

Love it. The slightly off key glockenspiel is perfect. Creates just the right tension.

Saw Blondie a while back at an outdoor venue on a pier in Baltimore. Debbie's voice and stage presence were superb.

For us GenXer's I would have to agree. For the rest of the world maybe not.
I'm totally biased, in awe and grateful for Blondie, thus giving this a 9 🌟
Wow this seems of another caliber than most Blondie. She actually sounds a little like Patti Smith here. Maybe it's just that it's not one that's been played to death. 
Oh my giddy giddy goodness!!!!  A perfect Harry song...one that I rarely here.  Gawd I love the woman!!!
As much as I LOVE DH & Blondie I have not heard this. I am very happy to make its aquantance. Thanks 
5 at best

I wouldn't go nearly that far but it's pretty cool.
