I'm gonna tell you a story about Mary Lou
I mean the kind of a girl who make a fool of you
Shed make a young man groan and a poor man pain
The way she took my money was a cryin' shame

Mary Lou, she took my watch and chain
Mary Lou, she took my diamond ring
Mary Lou, she took my Cadillac car
Jumped in my kitty and then drove afar

Well, she picked up from Georgia, moved to Kalamazoo
Made her a fortune outta fools like you
Met her a rich man who was married and had two kids
She stoked that cat till he flipped his lid

Mary Lou, she took my watch and chain
Mary Lou, she took my diamond ring
Mary Lou, she took my Cadillac car
Jumped in my kitty and then drove afar

Well, she came back to town about a week ago
Told me she was sorry, she had hurt me so
I had a 55 Ford and a two dollar bill
The way she took that man, she gave me a chill

Mary Lou, she took my watch and chain
Mary Lou, she took my diamond ring
Mary Lou, she took my Cadillac car
Jumped in my kitty and then drove afar

Mary Lou
(Mary Lou, Mary Lou )
And [Incomprehensible] too
(Big fool, big fool)
Ahh, Mary Lou
(Mary Lou, Mary Lou)
Oh, child you big fool
(Big fool, big fool)

You did everything for him that you could do
Mary Lou, Mary Lou
You did everything for him that you could do
Mary Lou, Mary Lou
You did everything for him that you could do
