Lyrics
Mary Mary quite contrary
You don’t look so good tonight
Hands at your jaw
Something just ain't right

Hair looking shabby
Never seen out of place
Something must be wrong
Bear with me while I sing you this song

If he ain't doing right
No need to up and fight
He won’t come home tonight
Will you keep believing lies?
No no no no
Things ain't right
So your nails you sit and bite
Trying hard to keep it tight
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh

Mary Mary, quite contrary
Where’s the happy girl I used to know
Smile like the sun, joy every place you go
Come tell me ‘bout your problems
Don’t keep it to yourself
Remember I’m your friend
I’ll linger for a while and try to make you understand

First, loosen up let’s sit and chat
I hate to see you looking like that
Though I know it isn’t easy
But it’s not the end of the world
Take a load off your shoulder
Can you do this for me?
Oh oh oh oh
My dear Mary
Don’t do that to yourself
No oh oh
My dear Mary

Mary Mary don’t get weary
It’s just a part of a play
You’ll star it up again at the end of the day
After all it’s not so bad, things could be worse
Give me that smile girl, now send him a rose

If he ain't doing right
No need to up and fight
Still won’t come home tonight
Will you keep believing lies?
No no no no
Things ain't right
So your nails you sit and bite
Trying hard to keep it tight
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh

Loosen up let’s sit and chat
I hate to see you looking like that
Though I know it isn’t easy
But it’s not the end of the world
Take a load off your shoulder
Can you do this for me?
My my my my
My Mary
Don’t do this to yourself
Oh no no oh
My dear Mary
Can you do this for me?
Smile

If he ain't doing right
No need to up and fight
Still won’t come home tonight
Will you keep believing lies?
No no no no
Things ain't right
So your nails you sit and bite
Trying hard to keep it tight
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
