West Side Story: Lyrics
(lyrics by Stephen Sondheim)
I FEEL PRETTY
(MARIA:) I feel pretty, Oh, so pretty, I feel pretty and witty and bright! And I pity Any girl who isn't me tonight.
I feel charming, Oh, so charming It's alarming how charming I feel! And so pretty That I hardly can believe I'm real.
See the pretty girl in that mirror there: Who can that attractive girl be? Such a pretty face, Such a pretty dress, Such a pretty smile, Such a pretty me!
I feel stunning And entrancing, Feel like running and dancing for joy, For I'm loved By a pretty wonderful boy!
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 girl named Maria, And suddenly I've found How wonderful a sound Can be! Maria! Say it loud and there's music playing, Say it soft and it's almost like praying.
Maria, I'll never stop saying Maria!
The most beautiful sound I ever heard. Maria.
ONE HAND, ONE HEART
(TONY) Make of our hands one hand, Make of our hearts one heart, Make of our vows one last vow: Only death will part us now. (MARIA) Make of our lives one life, Day after day, one life. (BOTH) Now it begins, now we start One hand, one heart; Even death won't part us now. Make of our lives one life, Day after day, one life. Now it begins, now we start One hand, one heart, Even death won't part us now.
(TONY) Tonight, tonight, It all began tonight, I saw you and the world went away.
(MARIA) Tonight, tonight, There’s only you tonight, What you are, what you do, what you say.
(TONY) Today, all day I had the feeling A miracle would happen -- I know now I was right.
(BOTH) For here you are And what was just a world is a star Tonight!
