Auntie Mary, open up the door
Auntie Mary, open up the door
Auntie Mary, open up the door
What I did last night I ain't gonna do no more
Auntie Mary, open up the door
Auntie Mary, open up the door
Auntie Mary, open up the door
What I did last night I ain't gonna do no more

Falumi:
Charlie cannot take a drink
When he get out never stop to think
He would drink and drink more and more
When he get home I won't open up the door
I will not open up the door
I will not open up the door
I will not open up the door
What he did last night I won't let him do no more

Harry:
Well Mary, you buggin' me
I tell you I must be free
Woman I've got to have some fun
I work all day at night I drink my rum

So Mary open up the door
Woman open up the door
I tell you open up the door
What I did last night I ain't gonna do no more

Auntie Mary open up the door
Oh Mary open up the door
Auntie Mary open up the door
What he did last night he will not do no more

Auntie Mary open up the door
Oh Mary open up the door
Auntie Mary open up the door
What he did last night he will not do no more

Falumi:
Now Charlie listen to me
You can't be free and still have me
I'm tired of gettin' in a fight
If you get drunk you will sleep outside tonight
'Cause I will not open up the door
No I will not open up the door
What you did last night I won't let you do no more

Harry:
Well I guess I got no more home
I'm going out on my own
I'm go get myself a fishing boat and oar
And you can try sleeping with the door

Auntie Mary open up the door
Oh Mary open up the door
Auntie Mary open up the door
What he did last night he will not do no more

Harry: Auntie Mary, open up the door
Falumi: Would be an improvement
Harry: Woman, I said open up the door
Falumi: Would be an improvement
Harry: I ain't gonna do no more
