Maria

Lyrics

playShe moves like she don't care
playSmooth as silk, cool as air
playOoh it makes you wanna cry
playShe doesn't know your name
playAnd your heart beats like a subway train
playOoh it makes you wanna die

playOoh, don't you wanna take her?
playOoh, wanna make her all your own?

playMaria, you've gotta see her
playGo insane and out of your mind
playRegina, Ave Maria
playA million and one candle lights

playI've seen this thing before
playIn my best friend and the boy next door
playFool for love and fool on fire

playWon't come in from the rain
playShe's oceans running down the drain
playBlue as ice and desire

playDon't you wanna make her?
playOoh, don't you wanna take her home?

playMaria, you've gotta see her
playGo insane and out of your mind
playRegina, Ave Maria
playA million and one candle lights

playOoh, don't you wanna break her?
playOoh, don't you wanna take her home?

playShe walks like she don't care
playWalking on imported air
playOoh, it makes you wanna cry

playMaria, you've gotta see her
playGo insane and out of your mind
playRegina, Ave Maria
playA million and one candle lights

playMaria, you've gotta see her
playGo insane and out of your mind
playRegina, Ave Maria
playA million and one candle lights

This was written by Blondie keyboard player Jimmy Destri, who when asked what this song was about replied:

"Desire. Teenage desire because I have a teenage daughter and she's pretty beautiful and I watch all these boys gawk at her. I put myself in their shoes thinking about what I used to do with girls back then. I wasn't a very forward guy at all, I was like from afar and I'd go home and write a poem about her - I was really a sad little bastard. It sounds cute but you don't get any attention that way. So 'Maria' is about desire and the whole idea of using the Ave Maria thing is a way of saying she's on a pedestal, she's almost holy. It's not a religious thing at all, I don't believe in religion really."
