Lyrics

oh maria
oh maria

oh maria's in the pasture
with all the people running past her

she said "if every day's a Holly-day"
she said "if every day's a Holly-day"
she said "if every day's a Holly-day
then today must be the day of the dead"

oh maria
oh maria
now that you're all alone, do you remember that song?

she woke up
singing along
the words came quickly
but the melody was wrong

oh maria, is in the pasture
with all the people running past her

she said "if every day's a Holly-day"
she said "if every day's a Holly-day"
she said "if every day's a Holly-day
then today must be the day of the dead"

oh maria
oh maria
now that you're all alone, do you remember that song?

just think of me when you're falling asleep
when you wake up, you'll be able to dream
