“Mary, Mary” Lyrics

Mary, Mary, where you going to?
Mary, Mary, can I go too?
This one thing I will vow ya
Rather die than to live without ya
Mary, Mary, where you going to? (Oh! Hey! Woo!)

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 going to? (Oh! Hey! Whoa!)

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

Mary, Mary, it’s not over
Where you go, I will follow
Until I win your love again
And walk beside you, but until then
Mary, Mary, where you going to? (Hup! Yeah!) (Hoo. Hey! Wow!) (Ohh!)

Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary (Mary, Mary)
Where you going, Mary? (Mary, Mary)
Oh, Mary, Mary, Mary (Mary, Mary)
Where you going to? (Mary, Mary)
Little Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary (Mary, Mary)
(Mary, Mary)
(Mary, Mary) Mary
(Mary, Mary)
(Mary, Mary)
Oh, Mary Mary, Mary, Mary Mary
Mary Mary, Mary, Mary
Little Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary
Where you going to?
Oh, got to go, Mary
I said a Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary, where you going?
Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary, where you going?
Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary, where you going?
Mary, Mary
Ah, say hey

Mike: I’m all through.
Micky: Are you all done?
Mike: I’m all done. I won’t—I won’t make you run back to the microphone any more. Aw. Hi. Oh. Don’t hurt her. Don’t you hurt that little girl. Be very gentle and kind and loving. Don’t forget your first duty is as a public servant. To protect and to serve, don’t forget! Ah, love ’em all. Bye, Mick.

Mary—

Mike: Ey Mick. Micky. I’m sorry. I won’t do it any more. Yeah, okay, we’ll leave now. Yeah, both of us. Okay. Goodbye.
