Maria

作詞:Oscar Hammerstein II    作曲:Richard Rogders
柏斯修女:
她總愛爬樹、磨破膝蓋 She climbs a tree and scrapes her knee,
弄得衣服都是破洞 Her dress has got a tear.
修女A:(唱)
她跳著華爾茲去望彌撒 She waltzes on her way to Mass
還在樓梯間吹口哨 And whistles on the stair.
索菲亞:(唱)
在她的頭巾底下 And underneath her wimple
她偷偷藏著髮卷 She has curlers in her hair-
修女A:(唱)
我還聽到她在修道院裡唱歌! I even heard her singing in the Abbey!
柏 斯:(唱)
她上禮拜堂總是遲到 She's always late for chapel-
瑪格麗特:(唱)
但是都真心懺悔 But her penitence is real.
索菲亞:(唱)
她做什麼事都遲到! She's always late for everything
修女A:
除了早晚吃三餐 Except for every meal.
柏 斯:(唱)
我實在不想說 I hate to have to say it
但是我深深感覺 But I very firmly feel
柏斯、索菲亞:(唱)
瑪莉亞絕對不是當修女的料! Maria's not an asset to the Abbey.
修女B:(唱)
我想針對她的行為說幾句話 I like to say a word in her behalf-
院 長:(白) 說吧,這位姐妹 Then say it, Sister.
修女B:(唱)
瑪莉亞…實在…很搞笑!Maria…makes me…laugh!

(眾修女大笑,院長搖頭)

瑪格麗特:(唱)
該怎麼解決瑪莉亞的問題? How do you solve a problem like Maria?
院 長:(唱)
要怎樣才能捉住浮雲,釘牢在地? How do you catch a cloud and pin it down?
修女C:(唱)
該用什麼字眼來形容瑪莉亞? How do you find a word that means Maria?
柏 斯:(唱) 多嘴婆 A flibbertijibbet!
索菲亞:(唱) 鬼火點 A will-o'-the-wisp!
修女B: 小丑!A clown!

院 長:(唱)
很多事你覺得你應該告訴她 Many a thing you know you'd like to tell her,
很多事她應該學著了解 Many a thing she ought to understand,
瑪格麗特:(唱)
但該怎樣才能讓她靜下來? But how do you make her stay
好好聽你把話說完? And listen to all you say?
院 長:(唱)
要怎樣才能讓浪花留在沙灘上? How do you keep a wave upon the sand?
眾 人:(唱)
該怎麼解決瑪莉亞這個大問題呢? Oh how do you solve a problem like Maria?
院 長:(唱)
要怎樣才能把月光握在手心裡? How do you hold a moonbeam in your hand?

修女A:(唱)
每當我和她共處 When I'm with her I'm confused,
我都被她弄得團團轉 Out of focus and bemused,
根本不曉得自己置身何處 And I never know exactly where I am.
索菲亞:(唱) 像天氣一樣不可預測 Unpredictable as weather
修女C:(唱) 活潑飛舞又像羽毛 She's as flighty as a feather-
瑪格麗特:(對柏斯唱) 她很貼心! She's a darling!
柏 斯:(對瑪格麗特唱) 她很討厭!She's a demon!
修女B:(對柏斯唱) 她很溫馴!She's a lamb!
索菲亞:(唱) 她會抓害蟲 She'd outpester any pest,
也愛把黃蜂趕出蜂窩 Drive a hornet from its nest,
柏 斯:(唱) 她會把靈修的僧人搞得團團轉! She can throw a whirling dervish out of whirl.
瑪格麗特:(唱) 她很溫婉 She is gentle,
修女C:(唱) 她很野! She is wild,
修女B:(唱) 她像謎團 She's a riddle,
索菲亞:(唱) 又童心未泯 She's a child,
柏 斯:(唱) 她讓人頭大!! She's a headache!
修女A:(唱) 她彷彿天使!! She's an angel-
院 長:(唱) 她只是個孩子! She's a girl…

(眾人雙手合十,宛若祈禱,眼睛虔誠地望著天堂的方向…)
