"Marie Cherie" as written by Hannah Robinson, Annie,, Y and Richard X....
I used to know this girl Marie
and so the story goes, she never really talked to me
Her house was seven blocks away
On my way to school I went to see if she's okay

Tell me, where have you gone
Where have you gone, Marie
Why did you leave
Come back to me, Cherie
I know you went away
You went away, Marie
You cannot stay
You cannot stay, Cherie
Please stay with me, Marie Cherie
Here in me

Oh no, I did not treat you right
You're in the senses lost, you never had the chance to fly
She looked so pretty, like a dream
Her skin's like velvet cream, she never made a sweet sixteen

Nobody came around to see her
It was as if she was not there
A lone butterfly that's caught in a net (?)

Tell me, where have you gone
Where have you gone, Marie
Why did you leave
Come back to me, Cherie
I know you went away
You went away, Marie
You cannot stay
You cannot stay, Cherie
Please stay with me, Marie Cherie
Here in me

I know you went away
You went away, Marie
You cannot stay
You cannot stay, Cherie
Tell me, where have you gone
Where have you gone, Marie
Why did you leave
Come back to me, Cherie
I know you went away
You went away, Marie
You cannot stay
You cannot stay, Cherie
Please stay with me, Marie Cherie
Here in me

    General CommentCorrections:

    In the chorus, the phrase "You cannot stay" should be "You could not stay"

    And the verse:

    "Nobody came around to see her
    It was as if she was not there
    A lone butterfly that's caught in a net (?)"

    Should be:

    "Nobody came around to see her
    It was as if she was not there
    A lone butterfly that's caught in the amber
    Always your daddy's little girl"


    You're very welcome.
