"Meet Me At Mary's Place" as written by and Sam Cooke....
A friend of mine told me
One clearly mornin'
(Over at Mary's place, ho)
Said tonight there's gonna
Be a party goin' on
(Over at Mary's place, ho)

He said if you can enjoy
A real nice affair
(Over at Mary's place, ho)
Then you'll make it
Your business to be right there
(Over at Mary's place, ho)
He said in fact

Meet me
(Meet me at Mary's place)
We're gonna have
(We're gonna have us a ball today)
Why don't you
(Meet me at Mary's place)

Why don't you meet me
(Meet me at Mary's place)
We're gonna have
(We're gonna have us a ball today)
Why don't you
(Meet me at Mary's place, ho)

He said, there's one thing
That I want you to know
(Over at Mary's place, ho)
You're gonna have a good time
Before you go
(Over at Mary's place, ho)

He said, there's one more thing
That I'm gonna guarantee
(Over at Mary's place, ho)
Got to have fun
If you're a man like me
(Over at Mary's place, ho)
If you wanna have fun

Meet me
(Meet me at Mary's place)
We're gonna have
(We're gonna have us a ball today)

Why don't you
(Meet me at Mary's place)
Oh, meet me
(Meet me at Mary's place)
We're gonna have
(We're gonna have us a ball today)

Why don't you
(Meet me at Mary's place, ho)
If you wanna have a good time
(Meet me at Mary's place)
We're gonna have
(We're gonna have us a ball today)

Come on and
(Meet me at Mary's place)
Oh, meet me
(Meet me at Mary's place)
We're gonna have
(We're gonna have us a ball today)
Come on and
(Meet me at Mary's place, ho)

    General CommentBruce Springsteen (who is, it must be said, a great man and a great artist) clearly took the concept from this song and used it on his The Rising album, without giving Sam Cooke any credit.
