Great Big Sea – Mari-Mac lyrics

There's a neat little lass and her name is Mari-Mac,
And make no mistake she's the girl I'm gonna track,
Lot's of other fellas tryin' to get her on her back,
But I'm thinkin' that they'll have to get up early.
Mari-Mac's mother's makin' Mari-Mac marry me,
My mother's makin' me marry Mari-Mac,
Well I'm gonna marry Mari for when Mari's takin' care of me,
We'll all be feelin' merry when I marry Mari-Mac!
Now Mari and her mother are an awful lot together,
In fact I hardly see one without the other,
And people often if it's Mari or her mother,
Or both of them together I'm courting!
Mari-Mac's mother's makin' Mari-Mac marry me,
My mother's makin' me marry Mari-Mac,
Well I'm gonna marry Mari for when Mari's takin' care of me,
We'll all be feelin' merry when I marry Mari-Mac!
Well, up among the heather in the hills of Ben Afie,
Well, I had a bonnie lass sittin' on me knee,
A bumblebee stung be right upon me knee,
Up among the heather in the hills of Ben Afie.
Mari-Mac's mother's makin' Mari-Mac marry me,
My mother's makin' me marry Mari-Mac,
Well I'm gonna marry Mari for when Mari's takin' care of me,
We'll all be feelin' merry when I marry Mari-Mac!
Well, I said "me bonnie lass, where're y'gonna spend the day?"
She said "Among the heather in the hills of Ben Afie."
Where all the boys and girls are makin' out so free,
All among the heather in the hills of Ben Afie!
Mari-Mac's mother's makin' Mari-Mac marry me,
My mother's makin' me marry Mari-Mac,
Well I'm gonna marry Mari for when Mari's takin' care of me,
We'll all be feelin' merry when I marry Mari-Mac!
Wedding's on a Wednesday everthing's arranged,
Soon her name will be changed to mine unless her mind be changed,
And making the arrangements, I'm feeling quite deranged,
Marriage is an awful undertakin'!
Mari-Mac's mother's makin' Mari-Mac marry me,
My mother's makin' me marry Mari-Mac,
Well I'm gonna marry Mari for when Mari's takin' care of me,
We'll all be feelin' merry when I marry Mari-Mac!
Sure to be a grand affair, grander than a fair,
Going to be a fork and plate for every man that's there
And I'll be a bugger if I don't get my share,
If I don't we'll be very much mistaken.
Mari-Mac's mother's makin' Mari-Mac marry me,
My mother's makin' me marry Mari-Mac,
Well I'm gonna marry Mari for when Mari's takin' care of me,
We'll all be feelin' merry when I marry Mari-Mac!
There's a neat little lass and her name is Mari-Mac,
And make no mistake she's the girl I'm gonna track,
Lot's of other fellas tryin' to get up on her back,
But I'm thinkin' that they'll have to get up early.
