“Mary, Mary” Lyrics

Davy: Okay, now you have to do some work. Everybody clap your hands, come on. Clap your hands. Louder, come on, everybody up here too. Clap. Stamp your feet and clap, come on. One, two, one two three four!
Micky: Hey, wait a minute, I’m not ready. Wait a minute. I’m not ready. I’m sorry. I’m not really ready. I’m not ready! I’m not ready. Wait a minute. I’m not ready. Okay, I’m ready. Wait a minute, I’m not ready yet, wait a minute, wait a minute. Okay, I’m ready.
Davy: He’s ready now. Okay, everybody, clap your hands, and stamp your feet. One, two, one two three four!

Mary, Mary, where you goin’ to?
Mary, Mary, can I go too?
This one thing I will vow ya
I’d rather die than to live without ya
Mary, Mary, where you goin’ to? (Ah, woo!) (Hey!)

Mary, Mary, tell me truly
What did I do to make you leave me?
Whatever it was, I didn’t mean to
You know I never would try and hurt ya
Mary, Mary, where you goin’ to? (Uh! Hey!)

What more Mary can I do
To prove my love is truly yours?
I’ve done more now than a clear-thinkin’ man would do (Hey!)

Mary, Mary, it’s not over
Where you go, I will follow
’Til I win your love again
And walk beside you, but until then
Mary, Mary, where you goin’ to? (Ah! Ahh! Hey!) (Ah!)

Oh, Mary, Mary, where you goin’ to?
Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary, where you goin’ to? (Mary, Mary)
Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary, where you goin’ to? (Mary, Mary)
(Mary, Mary)
(Mary, Mary)
Oh, Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary, where you goin’ to?
Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary, where you goin’ to?
Mary, Mary
Said Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary, where you goin’ to?
Mary, Mary
Said Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary, where you goin’?
Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary, where you goin’?
Mary, Mary, Mary, where you goin’ to?
Said a-Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary, where you goin’?
Mary, where you goin’?

Micky: Thank you.

Mary, Mary, where you goin’ to?
Mary, Mary, where you—
Ma—
Ma—

Micky: Are you all done?
Mike: Yeah. I’m all through.

Mary, where you—

Ma—

Mike: Okay, I’m all through.
Micky: Are you all through?
Mike: I’m all done.
Micky: Okay.
Mike: I won’t do it any more.
Micky: I’ll get my camera.
Mike: Okay. Bye.
Micky: Bye. Goodbye. You sure you’re through?
Mike: Oh yeah, I’m through. I won’t do it any more.

Mary—

Micky: You lied to me!
Mike: You can leave, I won’t do it any more. I really won’t do it any more. C’mon, I’ll show you. I’ll show—I’m in such good faith, I’ll even—No, you’ve gotta leave the microphone here. That’s no fair.
Micky: I gotta leave the microphone.
Mike: I, really, I’m through. I won’t do it any more.

Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary, where you goin’ to?
Mary, Mary, Mary, where you goin’ to?
Mary, Mary
Mary—

Micky: Mike?
