Lyrics / Paroles

michael

Maria, hey hey, hey, hey, hey, Maria
Maria, don’t you hear me calling, Maria?
Maria, girl, you know you were the only one
Hey hey, hey, hey, hey, Maria
Maria, don’t you miss me a little
Maria, after all you were the only one
Come on back to me, Maria
Maria, come on back to me girl

Hey hey, hey, hey, hey, Maria
Maria it’s been long, so long
Maria, since you’ve been
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, Maria
Maria, don’t you need me just a little
Maria, ’cause honest girl
You were the only one
Come on back to me, Maria
Oh, come on back to me girl

Maria, ooh baby
I need you
Maria, why, why d’you keep on running away
Oh baby, yeah Maria
I need you honey
Oh, Maria, you sweet little sunflower
Oh, hear my plea for sympathy
I just want you here with me, Maria
If you’re on that lonely night
What’s my life without you girl?
I’m so alone and I’m so blue
Without you darling my life is through
Come on back

Ad libs
