Everybody wants something from you,
Everybody want a piece of mary
Lush valley all dressed in green
Just ripe for the picking

God i want to get you out of here
You can ride in a pink mustang
When i think of what we've done to you
Oh, mary, can you hear me?

Growing up isn't always fun
They tore your dress and stole your ribbons
They see you cry, they lick their lips
But butterflies don't belong in nets

Oh mary, can you hear me?
Mary, you're bleeding
Mary, don't be afraid
We're just waking up
And i hear help is on the way

Mary, can you hear me?
Mary, like jimmy said
Mary, don't be afraid
'cause even the wind...
Even the wind cries your name

Everybody wants you, sweetheart
Everybody got a dream of glory
Las vegas got a pin-up girl
They got her armed as they buy and sell her

Rivers of milk are running dry
Can't you hear the dolphins crying
What'll we do when our babies scream
Fill their mouths with some acid rain

Oh mary, can you hear me?
Mary, you're bleeding
Mary, don't be afraid
We're just waking up
And i hear help is on the way

Mary, can you hear me?
Mary, like jimmy said
Mary, don't be afraid
'cause even the wind...
Even the wind cries your name

Na nay nay nay nay, na na na nay nay
Na nay nay nay nay, na na na nay nay, ooh ooh
Na nay nay nay nay, na na na nay

Oh butterflies don't belong in nets

Oh mary, can you hear me?
Mary, you're bleeding
Mary, don't be afraid
We're just waking up
And i hear help is on the way

Mary, can you hear me?
Mary, like jimmy said
Mary, don't be afraid
'cause even the wind...
Even the wind cries your name
'cause even the wind cries your name
'cause even the wind cries your name
Cries your name...
Cries your name...
Cries your name...
