crickets sing for annamaria lyrics – emma bunton

hey maria pappa said you’d better go to bed
maria mamma said you’d better go to bed
and little sister said you’d better go to bed
the older brother said
you heard what pappa said
you’d better say goodnight
you’d better shut the light

and pappa told you no,
you can’t go out tonight

but pappa didn’t know
maria had a date
and couldn’t let him wait
so in a little while

she waited till the lights were low
she went out to the window to her beau
and so…

there was a lot of huggin’ and
a lot of kissin’ and
a lot of huggin’ and
a lot of kissin’ and
a lot of happy talk
a lot of moon above
but very little time
but very little time

to make a lot of love
to make a lot of love
which is a normal thing
to make a lot of love
for it was summertime
when all the crickets sing
and in the summertime

when anyone’s in love
the crickets sing a happy song
but they didn’t do their repertoire for long

suddenly the pappa came,
and then the mamma came,
and then the sister came,
and then the brother came,
and then the uncle came,
and then the cousin came,
and even — came,

and i can tell you,
this, it was a dirty shame
because the pappa came,
and then the mamma came,
and then the sister came,
and then the brother came,
and then the cousin came,
and even — came,

i can tell you this,
