Maryann you're better than the world
They took a lot of time getting it right on this girl
I said Maryann you're better than the world
They did a lot of things right on this girl
I had a lot of girlfriends
I should have known them
Click your heels and count back from three
Do you want to go back
You should have known that
The butterfly in reverse here is me
Maryann you're better than the world
They took a lot of time getting it right on this girl
I said Maryann you're better than the world
They did a lot of things right on this girl
Where'd you want to go to
With nothing beside you
But webbing and curfews and rain
And everything that hurts you
Gets stuffed up inside you
Like butterflies with wings
Or other perfect things
We go swimming in the sunshine
Dangling from clotheslines
Seperate and fall into me
And did you ever see me
Me absolutely
Me but all you but still me
Maryann you're better than the world
They took a lot of time getting it right on this girl
I said Maryann you're better than the world
They did a lot of things right on this girl did a lot of things right on this [2X]
Did a lot of things right on this girl
