Mayn Mirl (Maria) - from West Side Story
Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim
what is the general character of this song?
Bakent hob ikh zikh mit mayn mirl
Ir nomen, vi gezang
Vi zise harfn klang ikh shver
In zis iz a kish fin mayn mirl
In himl bald ikh shvayb
Kh'hob vider oyfgelaybt
S'iz ir kol, vi muzik, tsart, a shtile
Ven zi redt, dakht zikh mir s'iz a tfile
Mayn Mirl, kh'vel eybik nor libn
I just met a girl named Maria,
and suddenly that name
will never be the same to me.
I just kissed a girl named Maria
and suddenly I've found
how wonderful a sound can be!
Say it loud and there's music playing -
Say it soft, and it's almost like praying
Maria - I'll never stop saying Maria!
