Hello Mary Lou, goodbye heart
Sweet Mary Lou I'm so in love with you
I knew Mary Lou, we'd never part
So hello Mary Lou, goodbye heart

Passed me by one sunny day
Flashed those big brown eyes my way
I knew I wanted you forever more
Now I'm not one that gets around
Swear my feet stuck to the ground
And 'though I never did meet you before

I said hello Mary Lou, goodbye heart
Sweet Mary Lou I'm so in love with you
I knew Mary Lou, we'd never part
So hello Mary Lou, goodbye heart

I saw your lips I heard your voice
Believe me I just had no choice
Wild horses couldn't make me stay away
I thought about a moonlit night
Arms around you good and tight
That's all I had to see for me to say

Hey hey
Hello Mary Lou, goodbye heart
Sweet Mary Lou I'm so in love with you
I knew Mary Lou, we'd never part
So hello Mary Lou, goodbye heart
Yes hello Mary Lou, goodbye heart
Hello Mary Lou, goodbye heart

    This song means that Mary had his heart all along. The boy just wasn't ready. He's ready now to give her what she wants. It's written in the wind. She wanted a baby. He was too young. She was too pushy. He ran. All along he couldn't stop thinking about her. Now he wants to go back and do it again. The only mother he's ever known. The mother of his children. His lover, his secret friend. She has always been his best friend. Time has been good to them. They have one more chance to get this right. It's been written in the stars all along. A grand master plan. That's what soul mates are. She had it wrong at first. He taught her how to see it. He taught her how to read the stars like a map. The map to his heart. She already had the key. He had given it to her long ago. It was long ago and it was far away. It wasn't better than today. It was waiting. Today has been waiting for them. Come on pretty baby let's go make a family. Keep on rocking me baby. Love you Mary Lou.
