"Marie" as written by and Irving Berlin....
Marie, don't wait up for me
Oh I wish that I was there tonight
To kiss and hug and hold you tight
Marie have some sympathy
Ooh you know I'd be there if I could
To tell you all the things I should

On this cold cold night
Working overtime again
Oh honey you know it's a time and a half
I gotta get it while I can
Well leave the porch light on
You know that your the only one
So let me hang up the phone
Or I'll never get home
Honey I have to run

Marie, don't wait up for me
Oh I wish that I was there tonight
To kiss and hug and hold you tight
Marie, have some sympathy
Ooh you know I'd be there if I could
To tell you all the things I should

It's that same old line
The one that always worked before
I thought I was cool but she was nobody's fool
I opened up the bedroom door
And I tiptoed in, a through the darkness to the bed
And when I give her a kiss,
She turned her head and I missed,
And I kissed some guy instead

Oh my Marie how I missed you
And if you give me one more chance
You'll never hear these words again

Marie, don't wait up for me
Oh I wish that I was there tonight
To kiss and hug and hold you tight
Marie, have some sympathy
Oh you know I'd be there if I could
To tell you all the things I should

Marie, don't wait up for me
Oh I wish that I was there tonight
To kiss and hug and hold you tight
Marie, have some sympathy
