I Feel Pretty
Music: Leonard Bernstein/Lyrics: Stephen Sondheim
MARIA:
I feel pretty,
Oh, so pretty,
I feel pretty and witty and bright,
And I pity
Any girl who isn't me tonight.
I feel charming,
Oh, so charming -
It's alarming how charming I feel,
And so pretty
That I hardly can believe I'm real.
See the pretty girl in that mirror there:
Who can that attractive girl be?
Such a pretty face,
Such pretty dress,
Such a pretty smile.
Such s pretty me!
I feel stunning
And entrancing.
Feel like running and dancing for joy.
For I'm loved
By a pretty wonderful boy!

GIRLS:
Have you met my good friend Maria.
The craziest girl on the block?
You'll know her the minute you see her,
She's the one who is in an advanced state of shock.
She thinks she's in love,
She thinks she's in Spain,
She isn't in love,
She's merely insane!
It must be the heat,
Or some rare disease
Or too much to eat
Or maybe it's 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!

GIRLS:
La, la, la, la...

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

GIRLS:
La, la, la, la...

MARIA:
See the pretty girl in that mirror there:

GIRLS:
What mirror, where?

MARIA:
Who can that attractive girl be?

GIRLS:
Which? What? Where? Whom?
Such a pretty face,
Such pretty dress,
Such a pretty smile.
Such s pretty me!

GIRLS:
Whom-mmm?
Such s pretty me!

ALL:
I feel stunning
And entrancing.
Feel like running and dancing for joy.
For I'm loved
By a pretty wonderful boy!
