I must be going - (don't go);
My heart is showing - (don't go);
I better hurry awa-ay-ay-ay-ay;
If I don't leave I'll be sorry;
What will my Mary say?

Your lips are thrilling;
My arms are willing;
I know I shouldn't stay-ay-ay-ay-ay;
If I don't leave I'll be sorry;
What will my Mary say?

What would I do if she should need me;
And find me kissing you?
She's always trusted me completely;
Her poor heart would bre-ea-eak in two.

I must be going - (don't go);
My heart is showing - (don't go);
I better hurry awa-ay-ay-ay-ay;
If I don't leave I'll be sorry;
What will my Mary say?

If I don't leave I'll be sorry;
What will my Mary say?

(Don't go)
(Don't go)
