    Lyrics

    Maria! Honey,
    The say these colors don't run.
    But they bleed in your face
    Like a bully spitting up a bad taste
    After being knocked down a few pegs.
    You sigh as hard as a rock.
    It cuts your laugh lines absurd
    I'm smiling with irish eyes bloodshot,
    Christmas colored you don't know what you've got.
    I'm falling apart at the seams.
    I'm mending this fifth of old age,
    Just minding these six strings
    It don't do me a thing
    That you got a pretty face baby
    It don't seem to do you a damned thing

    You got soothsayer nay-saying
    Red herrings never spoke to us.
    We don't believe in fate or metaphor
    They got healing lips but their tongues are poison tipped.

    Maria, the moment is right
    To make them take a step back, take a step back.
    Maria on your quietest night
    We'll make them rue the day they met you, Maria.

    I'm whistling with conviction like a young man in love
    Like a young man with his pride on sale
    Baby, join the club
    Well you're just darling
    With your exclaimed travesties
    It's a long road, it's a long road, so keep your chin up

    You got soothsayer nay-saying
    Red herrings never spoke to us.
    We don't believe in fate or metaphor
    They got healing lips but their tongues are poison tipped.

    Maria, the moment is right
    To make them take a step back, take a step back.
    Maria on your quietest night
    We'll make them rue the day they met you, Maria.

    I once held a stone also
    Staring at you naked
    Daring us to throw
    Maria you see the good in everything
    Now I know stones and bones fall
    To where they came from

    Maria, the moment is right
    To make them take a step back, take a step back.
    Maria on your quietest night
    We'll make them rue the day they met you, Maria.
