  • Every time I think that I'm the only one who's lonely
    Someone calls on me
    And every now and then, I spend my time at rhyme and verse
    And curse those faults in me

    But then along comes Mary
    And does she wanna give me kicks
    And be my steady chick and give me pick of memories?
    Or maybe rather gather tales
    From all the fails and tribulations
    No one ever sees

    When we met, I was sure out to lunch
    Now my empty cup tastes as sweet as the punch
    Sweet as the punch

    When vague desire is the fire in the eyes of chicks
    Whose sickness is in the games they play
    And when the masquerade is played and neighbor
    Folks make jokes about who is most to blame today?

    And the along comes Mary
    And does she wanna set them free and make them see realities
    From which she got her name?
    And will they struggle much
    When told that such a tender touch of hers?
    Will make them not the same?

    When we met, I was sure out to lunch
    Now my empty cup tastes as sweet as the punch

    Comes along, oh here she comes
    Oh Mary comes along, along she comes
    So here she comes along, oh here she comes
    Oh Mary comes along, along she comes
    Sweet as the punch, sweet as the punch

    And the along comes Mary
    And does she wanna set them free and make them see realities
    From which she got her name?
    And will they struggle much
    When told that such a tender touch of hers?
    Will make them not the same?

    When we met, I was sure out to lunch
    Now my empty cup tastes as sweet as the punch
    Sweet as the punch

    Then when the morning of the warning's passed
    The gassed and flaccid kids are flung across the stars
    The psychodramas and the traumas gone
    The songs are left unsung and hung upon the scars

    And the Along Comes Mary
    And does she wanna see the stains
    The dead remains of all the pains she sent the night before
    Or will their waking eyes reflect the lies
    And make them realize their urgent cries for sight no more

    When we met, I was sure out to lunch
    Now my empty cup tastes as sweet as the punch

    Sweet as the punch
    Sweet as the punch
    Sweet as the punch...
