Miss Mary Mary Mack
Miss Mary Mack, Mack, Mack
All dressed in black, black, black,
with silver buttons, buttons, buttons
up and down her back, back, back.
Well, I love
coffee, coffee, coffee,
And I love tea, tea, tea,
And all the boys, boys, boys,
They all love me, me, me.
I went to the river, river, river,
And I couldn't get across, 'cross, 'cross,
And I paid five dollars, dollars, dollars,
For the old grey horse, horse, horse.
And the horse wouldn't pull, pull, pull,
I swapped him for a bull, bull, bull,
And the bull wouldn't holler, holler, holler,
I swapped him for a dollar, dollar, dollar.
And the dollar wouldn't spend, spend, spend,
I put it in the grass, grass, grass,
And the grass wouldn't grow, grow, grow,
I got my hoe, hoe, hoe.
And the hoe wouldn't chop, chop, chop,
I took it to the shop, shop, shop,
And the shop made money, money, money,
Like the bees made honey, honey, honey.
See that yonder, yonder, yonder.
In the jay-bird town, town, town.
Where the women gotta work, work, work,
Till the sun goes down, down, down.
Well, I eat my meat, meat, meat,
And I gnaw my bone, bone, bone,
Well, good-bye honey, honey, honey,
I'm going on home.
