1961 film lyrics[]

Maria: Only you, your the only thing I see forever. In my eyes, in my words, and in everything I do, Nothing else but you Ever.

Tony: And there's nothing for me but Maria, Every sight that I see is Maria.

Maria: Tony, Tony.

Tony: Always you, every thought I'll ever know. Every where I go you'll be.

Maria: All the world is on their own,

Both: And Me.

Maria: Tonight, Tonight. It all began Tonight, I saw you and the world went away. 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 in a star. Tonight.

Both: Tonight, Tonight the world is full of light. With suns and moons all over the place. Tonight, Tonight the world is wild and bright going mad shooting sparks into space. Today the world was just an address a place for me to live in, no better than all right. But here you are, and what was just a world is a star. Tonight!
