I FEEL PRETTY

MARIA
I feel pretty,
Oh, so pretty,
I feel pretty, and witty and gay,
And I pity
Any girl who isnít me today.

I feel charming,
Oh, so charming--
Itís alarming how charming I feel,
And so pretty
That I hardly can believe Iím real.

See the pretty girl in that mirror there:
Who can that attractive girl be?
Such a pretty face,
Such a pretty dress,
Such a pretty smile,
Such a pretty me!

I feel stunning
And entrancing--
Feel like running and dancing for joy,
For Iím loved
By a pretty wonderful boy!

ROSALIA, CONSUELO, FRANCISCA
Have you met my good friend Maria,
The craziest girl on the block?
Youíll know her the minute you see her--
Sheís the one who is in an advanced
State of shock.

She thinks sheís in love.
She thinks sheís in Spain.
She isnít in love,
Sheís merely insane.

It must be the heat
Or some rare disease
Or too much to eat,
Or maybe itís fleas.

Keep away from her --
Send for Chino!
This is not the Maria
We know!

Modest and pure,
Polite and refined,
Well-bred and mature
And out of her mind!

MARIA
I feel pretty,
Oh, so pretty
That the city should give me its key.
A committee
Should be organized to honor me.

I feel dizzy
I feel sunny,
I feel fizzy and funny and fine,
And so pretty,
Miss America can just resign!

See the pretty girl in that mirror there:

ROSALIA, CONSUELO, FRANCISCA
What mirror where?

MARIA
Who can that attractive girl be?

ROSALIA, CONSUELO, FRANCISCA
Which? What? Where? Whom?

MARIA
Such a pretty face,
Such a pretty dress,
Such a pretty smile,
Such a pretty me!

ALL
I feel stunning
And entrancing--
Feel like running and dancing for joy,
For Iím loved
By a pretty wonderful boy!
