Olly Murs – Maria lyrics
[Verse 1]
I wanna tell you a story 'bout, 'bout this girl, mmm
I warn you she's everything you desire, just take my word

[Pre-Chorus]
I was in the hotel lobby drinking all alone
She took me by the hand and away we go
She don't say a word and I can't say no
But I know she talking dirty in Español
We were kissing all the way up and down the stairs
She bite my lip and she pulled my hair
I opened my eyes and she wasn't there

[Chorus]
Ma-ma-ma-Maria, tell me have you seen her?
She's everything I want, want, want, want, want
But now she's go-o-one
Ma-ma-ma-Maria, tell me did I dream her?
She's everything I want, want, want, want, want
But now she's go-o-one
Ma-ma-ma-Maria, tell me have you seen her?

[Verse 2]
There's more to the story to talk about, 'bout that girl, mmm
She'll twist and she'll pull and she'll break you down 'til it hurts

[Pre-Chorus]
I was in the hotel lobby drinking all alone
She took me by the hand and away we go
She don't say a word and I can't say no
But I know she talking dirty in Español
We were kissing all the way up and down the stairs
She bite my lip and she pulled my hair
I opened my eyes and she wasn't there
All I got was her name

[Chorus]
Ma-ma-ma-Maria, tell me have you seen her?
She's everything I want, want, want, want, want
But now she's go-o-one
Ma-ma-ma-Maria, tell me did I dream her?
She's everything I want, want, want, want, want
But now she's go-o-one
Ma-ma-ma-Maria, tell me have you seen her?
Ma-ma-ma-Maria, tell me have you seen her?

[Bridge]
I know you're out there somewhere with somebody
I know you messed me up but I still love it
And every time I close my eyes, you didn't even say goodbye
Oh in my blood, in my veins, and all I got is your name

[Chorus]
Ma-ma-ma-Maria, tell me have you seen her?
She's everything I want, want, want, want, want
But now she's go-o-one
Ma-ma-ma-Maria, tell me did I dream her?
She's everything I want, want, want, want, want
But now she's go-o-one

[Outro]
Ma-ma-ma-Maria, tell me did you see her?
Ma-ma-ma-Maria, she's gone
She's gone, she's gone, she's gone, she's gone, she's gone
Yeah she's gone, she's gone, gone, gone
