Maria

by Jim Bryant




Maria... 

The most beautiful sound I ever heard: 
Maria, Maria, Maria, Maria . . . 
All the beautiful sounds 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.
