"Sweet Marie" as written by William Scott Gorham and Philip Parris Lynott....
Drinking sparkling wine,
And sniffing glue.
I've been looking for some soft abuse.
Maybe your big brother,
He don't see it that way.
But he ain't the one, who tonight I'm gonna meet.
'Cause tonight, tonight, I swear, I'm heading down to make my stand.
With that other boy, you call your new man.
Way up from the bottom, I'm gonna hit the street.
And scare that child so hard, till he's out of your reach.
So you and I can leave now, while your other love's away.
I know you would never cheat with anyone but me.
Its easy now for you,
'Cause you don't have to choose,
And there ain't no way that he can touch you now.

My Sweet Marie.
My Sweet Marie.

You and I can go down where nobody else will be,
I know you will never cheat with anyone but me
There's nothing left to do
We're hidden out of view
And there ain't no way that they can reach us now.

Drinking sparkling wine and cheap perfume,
I've been lookin' for some soft abuse.
Baby your new boy, he don't see it that way.
But tonight, I swear, I'm gonna set that pussy bastard straight.
So you can I can leave now while your other love's away.
I know you could never cheat now with anyone but me.
Its easy now for you, 'cause you don't have to choose,
And there ain't no way that you can touch him now.

My Sweet Marie.
My Sweet Marie.
My Sweet Marie.
My Sweet Marie.
