Sound of music - Maria

She climbs a tree and scrapes her knee
Her dress has got a tear
She waltzes on her way to Mass
And whistles on the stair
And underneath her wimple
She has curlers in her hair
I even heard her singing in the abbey
She`s always late for chapel
But her penitence is real
She`s always late for everything
Except for every meal
I hate to have to say it
But I very firmly feel
Maria`s not an asset to the abbey
I`d like to say a word in her behalf
Maria makes me laugh
How do you solve a problem like Maria?
How do you catch a cloud and pin it down?
How do you find a word that means Maria?
A flibbertijibbet! A will-o`-the wisp! A clown!
Many a thing you know you`d like to tell her
Many a thing she ought to understand
But how do you make her stay
And listen to all you say
How do you keep a wave upon the sand
Oh, how do you solve a problem like Maria?
How do you hold a moonbeam in your hand?
When I`m with her I`m confused
Out of focus and bemused
And I never know exactly where I am
Unpredictable as weather
She`s as flighty as a feather
She`s a darling! She`s a demon! She`s a lamb!
She`d outpester any pest
Drive a hornet from its nest
She could throw a whirling dervish out of whirl
She is gentle! She is wild!
She`s a riddle! She`s a child!
She`s a headache! She`s an angel!
She`s a girl!
How do you solve a problem like Maria?
How do you catch a cloud and pin it down?
How do you find a word that means Maria?
A flibbertijibbet! A will-o`-the wisp! A clown!
Many a thing you know you`d like to tell her
Many a thing she ought to understand
But how do you make her stay
And listen to all you say
How do you keep a wave upon the sand
Oh, how do you solve a problem like Maria?
How do you hold a moonbeam in your hand?
