Maria

Writer(s): Stephen Sondheim / Leonard Bernstein
From the Show: West Side Story (1957)

The most beautiful sound I ever heard:
Maria, Maria, Maria, Maria…
All the beautiful words of the world in a single word:
Maria, Maria, Maria, Maria…
Maria!
I’ve just met a girl named Maria,
And suddenly that name
Will never be the same to me.
Maria!
I’ve just kissed a girl named Maria,
And suddenly I’ve found
How wonderful a sound Can be!
Maria!
Say it loud and there’s music playing,
Say it soft and it’s almost like praying.
Maria,
I’ll never stop saying Maria!

The most beautiful sound I ever heard.
Maria.
