The Lyrics

For Ton’ she’ll come out at night;
the moon is shining bright.
But there’s a crew, wants her to stay indoors.
She’s tempting fate an’
Tony’s tempting it too, but he wants her so much more.
The West Side of NYC
is teeming with gang rivalry:
Jets say Sharks are vile; and, the Sharks want to see the Jets in tatters.
That doesn’t matter
to Maria in love; she meets him beneath the stars.
Loves that boy, whose hope is up.

So out she comes; she is Maria.
So out she comes; loves that boy whose hopes are up.
She thinks he’s no bum, lovely Maria.
So out she comes, lovely Maria.

They shouldn’t commune, these two;
a killing will ensue.
Dead is her man; Chino’s bullet rips the nerd apart,
leaves him in tatters.
She is beautiful, fair but left with a broken heart.
Gone’s her boy in a shootup.
Woe, he is gunned, sweet of Maria.
So she is stunned; shot’s her boy, whose time was up.
Chino and his gun displeased Maria. . . .

Tony may be dead, but the smoosh isn't. Nice overlap of songs about nice and not so nice girls.

Mighty impressive rhyme-matching, too! Great skills on display with this double smoosh!

typically I prefer the song "Maneater" to the song "Maria" but in this case just flip 'em around! 5's
