"Mary" as written by Archie Paul Jordan and Naomi Martin....

Little Miss Mary Sunshine had a bad day
She says it's overrated, living this way
She took her hair down, left her sweater on the floor
She's not a nice girl anymore

She says I won't apologize
Stand up girls, and dry your eyes
And I'll see you on the other side of good

Where we sing

She paints her fingernails in black, she's on the run
On the wrong side of the tracks where life is fun
Points a finger, but there's nobody to blame
All the people in her memory look the same

Chorus

Everybody's favorite girl
Doesn't fake it anymore
I'm okay with who I am today
Everybody's gotta change
I'm just doing what I can
Could you love me anyway?

Chorus

Little Miss Mary Sunshine had a bad day
She says it's overrated, living this way(2x)

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs on the album. It's basically saying that you don't have to be everyone's defination of "good" or "perfect" to live a good life, and often it's not worth it.

    General CommentOh and it's "on the floor" not "at the door" in the 3rd line.
