From the show "West Side Story" (1957)


(Tony:)
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.
