Maria hey hey eh eh hey Maria
Maria don't you hear me calling Maria
Maria girl you know you were the only one
Hey hey eh eh hey Maria

Maria after all you were the only one
Come on back to me Maria

Hey hey hey eh hey Maria

Oh Maria oh baby I need you mmm mmm

Oh baby you keep a-running away
Oh baby yeah Maria

Oh Maria you sweet little sunflower
Oh hear my plea for sympathy
I just-a want you here with me Maria
Ooh yeah yeah
Empty on the lonely nights
That's my life without you girl

Without you darling my life is through
Come on back

You keep running away
Come back come back
Ooh baby I need you gotta have you
