Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I have something on my mind that I’ve just got to say, Mary Lous, Mary Lou.
Just the same old story in the same old fashioned way, Mary Lou,
Listen, do!

[Verse 2]
There’s a cozy bungalow that’s fixed for you and me, Mary Lou, Mary Lou
Maybe in a year so we’ll make it do for three, Mary Lou,
Listen, do!

[Chorus]
Mary Lou, Mary Lou,
Cross my heart I love you!
Ev’ry bell in the steeple is ready to ring,
And all the people are planning pretty presents all for you, Mary Lou,
Won’t you give your promise true?
Why for miles around they’re waiting, to start their celebrating, when you say “I do,”
Mary Lou! Mary Lou!
