The trouble with Maria ... what should we do with her? ARRRRRRRRRR. ARRRRRRRR
When Oscar Hammerstein II wrote the lyric for this song along with Richard Rodgers, they knew Mary Martin was going to play the part of Maria Von Trapp. Martin, while a legendary actress and singer, was h**l to work with. So the song developed as part of their frustrations with her as well as the character.

The first place the Trapps lived in America was about 5 miles from where I grew up (but they moved to Vermont 7 years before I was born)
