Wop ba-dooba-do wop-wop-wop
Waa-op wa-dooba-do wop-wop-wop
Waa-op wa-dooba-do wop-wop-wop
Waa-op wa-dooba-do wop-wop-wop wo-op

Sweet Mary sent a letter to me
She say to "Hurry home
I need you right away.
I've got a stomach full of love
And I'm all alone
All of the day"

Sweet Mary I'm coming home
Coming home to you, hey-ey!
Sweet Mary I'm coming home now
That's the least I can do.

Sweet Mary in that letter to me
She said "It's up to you
I need you right away"
And now I got to hop a freight
Back to the farm and all
I've got to be

Sweet Mary I'm coming home
Coming home to you, yeah-hey.
Sweet Mary I'm coming home now
That's the least I can do, babe

Chickie-chickie-chickie to hop a freight
Chickie-chickie-chickie to hop a freight
Chickie-chickie Mary I'm coming home
Baby I'm coming

Chickie-chickie-chickie to hop a freight
Chickie-chickie-chickie to hop a freight
Chickie-chickie Mary I'm coming home

Wop ba-dooba-do wop-wop-wop
Waa-op wa-dooba-do wop-wop-wop
Waa-op wa-dooba-do wop-wop-wop
Waa-op wa-dooba-do wop. Oh yeah, baby.

Sweet Mary has a smile on her face
You know she's happy to see me wrap her in an embrace
I only hope that the passing of time
She'll always feel that way
And I won't pack up my things

Sweet Mary I'm coming home
Coming home to you, yeah, hey
Sweet Mary I'm coming home now
That's the least I can do. Hey

Chickie-chickie-chickie to hop a freight
Chickie-chickie-chickie to hop a freight
Chickie-chickie Mary I'm coming home
Well, Mary I'm coming

Chickie-chickie-chickie to hop a freight
Chickie-chickie-chickie to hop a freight
Chickie-chickie Mary I'm coming home
Home, Mary I'm coming

    The free-love movement of the 60's led to quite a few unexpected suprises. This one-hit wonder was one of them.

    Sweet Mary has a suprise, too. She's pregnant.

    The singer sees his responsibilities (and actually seems to like Mary) and is heading home to take care of her, the baby and the farm, like he should.

    In music and art, everything always works out so well...
