Mary Mary where you been
You've been out all night
You ain't got no sleep

She said, "I've been dancing in the hills
At a place I know"
She said, "And that's the place
Where the fire flies glow"

I slap my white face
Pull my head from the clouds
I kept buying and, lying and flying, relying
And dying to know what spins her world around

Good morning I missed ya
But ya bring me down
I saw an Indian roller
Today on the line

It was the forty-eighth hour
We fought our forty-eighth fight
Madame Helga's folly
Is where I spent last night

She's been married not once
Not twice, but three
And that's the livin' lovin' woman
I want me to be

There were pictures and paintings
Of freaks like me
So I drank with my devil
For my company

I slap my white face
Pull my head from my clouds
I kept buying and, lying and flying, relying
And dying to know what spins her world around

Good morning, I missed ya
But ya bringing me down
I saw an Indian roller
Today on the line

It was the forty-eighth hour
We fought our forty-eighth fight
Madame Helga's folly
Is where I spent last night
