Perry Como ~ By Request
 
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, Maria . . .
Maria!
Iíve just met a girl named Maria!
And suddenly that name will never be the same to me . . .
 
Maria!
Iíve just kissed a girl named Maria!
And suddenly Iíve found how wonderful a sound can be . . .
Maria!
Say it loud and thereís music playiní,
Say it soft and itís almost like prayiní,
Maria!
Iíll never stop sayiní Maria!
