Oh oh

I woke up on a summer's day
I just had to feel that way
I know sweet mary talks to you

Saw light on a distant shore
Changin' slowly till it could no more
I know sweet mary talks to you

Oh...

When you're walking the longest mile
When you're riding around for a while
I know sweet mary talks to you

In the glimmer of the fading light
In the shadow of the cross tonight
I know sweet mary talks to you

She says
Oh oh oh stay cool
She says
Oh oh oh stay cool'

She says
Oh oh oh stay cool

As you make out for the promised land
As you reach out with tremblin' hands
I know sweet mary talks to you

When waitin' around all day
When they come to take you away
I know sweet mary talks to you
She says oh oh oh stay cool
