I'm gonna tell you a story 'bout Mary Lou
You know the kind of woman make a fool of you
She make a young man itch
She man an old man faint
The way she took my money was a crying shame
Mary Lou she took my watch and chain
Mary Lou she took my diamond ring
Mary Lou she took the keys to my cadillac car
Jumped in my kitty and drove off far

Left me stranded in Kalamazoo
Making her fortune off a fool like you
She married a rich man
Had a dozen kids
Drove that cat until he flipped his lid

Come back into town about a week ago
Told me she was sorry that she hurt me so
I had a fifty-five Ford and a two dollar bill
The way she looked at that man gave me a chill
Mary Lou
