Have you been getting anything special in the mail lately?

Maria Elena Holly:
Yes and I don't mean to be rude Buddy but I just don't want to encourage you.

Buddy Holly:
Why not?

Maria Elena Holly:
There's no point going into it, just take my word. I think you're very sweet and thank you for the roses but now you're about to ask me out and I...

Buddy Holly:
Wait, just wait a minute, just wait a minute, let me explain one thing to you. I have never, ever chased after a girl before in my life and it feels funny to me. Now if you're not gonna go out with me I wanna know why. You do like me don't you?

Maria Elena Holly:
Yeah, I'm fond of you.

Buddy Holly:
Well then what's the hold up?

Maria Elena Holly:
My aunt.

Buddy Holly:
Your aunt? Mrs Santiago in the publishing department? She doesn't even know me!

Maria Elena Holly:
It doesn't matter. You are a musician. And under no circumstances am I allowed to go out with a musician. I'm sorry.

Buddy Holly:
Well let me go talk to her.

Maria Elena Holly:
It won't do any good. That's not her only objection and you know it.

Buddy Holly:
Well what is the other objection?

Maria Elena Holly:
I'm Puerto Rican. And you're, you're not.

Buddy Holly:
So I'll change my name to Chihuahua

Maria Elena Holly:
My aunt is very concious of these things.

Buddy Holly:
Are you kidding me with this stuff about your aunt? You're not kidding? Maria I just went through this, with people who said a white act couldn't play with a coloured tour, we got along fine, we're still get along. I don't even know where Puerto Rico is. I've gotta go back there, we'll finish this later ok?
