The Men They Couldt Hang – Mary's Present lyrics

Mary got a present from an old friend
It had been forwarded and forwarded again
It didn't come through the post, wasn't brought to her door
This delivery was so much more
Mary, Mary what's happened to you
What's happened to the girl we all knew
Has that old flame burnt you at last
Your future's been stolen by the past
It came later than expected, no surprise
Mary accepted with closed eyes
The wrapper had to be opened with a knife
Mary got a gift, it changed her life
Mary, Mary what's happened to you
What's happened to the girl we all knew
Has that old flame burnt you at last
Your future's been stolen by the past
Now she sits in and watches all the soaps
Reads romantic novels and vainly hopes
Mary remembers better days than this
And a time before fates bitter kiss
Mary wanted love, she needed truth
But it broke her heart and stole away her youth
Now her life will never be, never be the same again
But you won't hear Mary complain
Mary, Mary what's happened to you
What's happened to the girl we all knew
Has that fire burnt out at last
Your future's been stolen by the past
