"Mary, Mary" as written by and Nigel/bruce Hunter....
No virgin me
For I have sinned
I sold my soul
For sex and gin

Go call a priest
All meek and mild
And tell him "Mary
Is no more a child."

It's raining stones
It's raining bile
From the luxury
Of your denial

So I don't deny
I don't make do
I'll press alarms
Place bets on truth

I'm so up and down
And I love what's not allowed
I was lost now I see:
And now I'm growing old

Disgracefully
Whatever happened to Mary?
I'll spit on floors
And do more drugs

Burn every bill
Get drunk on love
Wear next to nothing
In the pouring rain

Be a bad example
And do it all again
I'll be uncareful
I'll cause such scenes

And I'll never talk
Of used-to-be's
Tattoo my face
I won't go grey

Be a dancing queen
I'm growing old disgracefully
I'm so up and down
And I love what's not allowed

I was lost, now I see:
And now I'm growing old
Disgracefully
Whatever happened to Mary?

Mary, Mary
Quite contrary
