Michael Ball – Maria lyrics

(leonard bernstein/stephen sondheim)

The most beautiful sound I've ever heard
Maria, maria, maria
Oh, the most beautiful sounds of all the world
A single world
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 gril named maria

I 've suddenly found how wonderful a sound can be
Maria, say it loud
And it's almost like music playing
Say it soft, it's almost like praying.
I'll never stop saying
Maria, maria, maria, maria
Maria, maria, maria, maria
Maria, maria

Say it loud and there's music playing
Say if soft

I'll never stop saying maria

The most beautiful sound I've ever heard
