lyrics

In January,
I saw her walking across the street, her name was Mary,
She had short red hair and a backpack on
With biology, anthropology, psychology, and a lonely heart.

In the library,
I was walking from A to Z, I saw sweet Mary,
She was reading a deposition about
A man who lost his limbic system and now he can't love at all.

Mary, Mary, put down that book and give me a moment with you.
Mary, Mary, just give me one look and tell me you love me too.
Mary, I love you.

I'm not Machiavelli, Tolstoy, and I can't paint like Botticelli.
I'm just a boy from the other side of the tracks
With a tattoo scratched right on my back
And it looks like, baby just like you.

Mary, Mary, I don't get my kicks from spelling dinosaur names, no,
Mary, Mary, if I had to pick, I'd go play tic tac toe, woh woh woh woh,
We could go to a show
And see the Ramones, "Hey Ho! Let's go!"
Eat an ice cream cone o woa woa woa.
