"The Case of M.J." as written by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller....
Mary Jane can go out and play
Mary Jane's been a good girl today
She ate all her peas
She said "thank you" and "please"
And she didn't mess up her pretty white dress

How old were you when your father went away?

Mary Jane caught the bride's bouquet
Mary Jane's getting married today
She ate all her peas
She said "thank you" and "please"
And she didn't mess up her pretty white dress

How old were you when your father went away?

Mary Jane tried to run away
Mary Jane has been naughty today
She won't eat her peas
She won't say "thank you" or "please"
And she's made a mess of her pretty white dress

How old were you when your father went away?

How old were you when your father went away?

How old were you when your father went away?
