Mary

Oh, Mary let your hair hang down
You wear it long and straight when you go to town
All the boys wanna kiss you. They’ll lay their hearts down
For Mary, the prettiest girl around

Oh, Mary let your hair fly free
You glide through your day so effortlessly
You’re the kinda of girl I wish I could be
But when I look into the mirror
You’re not what I see
You’re not what I see

I wanna be like Mary
I wanna be like Mary
I wanna be like Mary someday

Oh, Mary you shine, shine, shine
I envy your ruby lips and your peace of mind
My mother said we’re all one of a kind
But I think I could be like you
If I just had more time
If I just had more time

I wanna be like Mary
I wanna be like Mary
I wanna be like Mary someday

Oh I’m holding back my tears
I don’t want to show my fears
I know I’ll have to grow up someday
And make my own sweet life
But being Mary’d sure be nice

Oh, Mary everybody knows
You’re the girl with the golden life and you let it show
Do you ever wonder? Do you suppose?
If you’re life is this good right now
Where else can it go?
Where else can it go?

I wanna be like Mary
I wanna be like Mary
I wanna be like Mary someday
I wanna be, I wanna be, I wanna be, I wanna be
I wanna be like Mary someday
