Mary says things will work out right
But Mary don't have
Living a life in a TV set
Married to some young fool

Johnny, he works at a corner store
He used to play guitar
Grew his hair, then shaved it off
He's a 7-11 star

(chorus)
I got
The news
But memories fade by the afternoon
I got
The news
So I'm confiding in you
Yeah, I
Got the news


Sister Ella
Sits in her room
Dreamed of pots of gold
Missed out on reality
Doesn't realise
She's gotten old

Mary says things'll work out right
But she got left behind
In the dark and distant corners
The corners of her mind

(chorus)

Oooh-oooh
Huuu-oooohh
(repeat both of above x2)

I got
The news
The memories fade
Fade by the afternoob
I got the news
But I'm confiding in you
Yeah, I got the news
