"They Call the Wind Maria" as written by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe....
Way out west, they got a name
For rain and wind and fire
The rain is Tess, the fire’s Joe and
They call the wind Maria

Oh no, Maria blows the stars around
And sends the clouds a-flying
Maria makes the mountain sounds
Like folks were up there dying
Maria, they call the wind Maria

Now before I knew Maria's name
And heard her wail and whining
I had a girl and she had me
And the sun was always shining
Oh, but then one day I left my girl
I left her far behind me
And now I’m lost, I’m oh so lost
Not even God can find me

Maria, oh Maria, they call the wind Maria
I hear they got a name for rain
And wind and fire only
But when you’re lost and all alone
There ain't no words but lonely
And I’m a lost and lonely man
Without a star to guide me
Maria, blow your love to me
I need my girl beside me
Hey Maria, oh Maria
I’m lonely can’t you see
Maria, oh Maria
Please blow my love to me
Maria, blow my love to me
