Colleen Power – Mary Got A Baby lyrics

Mary got a baby and she's only fifteen
You can't see buddy for dust
Strangled in a small town, stuck out like a sore thumb
Nowhere to run, nowhere to run
Shame for the family
Mary got a secret and the whole little dirty town knows
Mary thought it was love, buddy thought it was lust
But it was Mary's balloon that got busted

Mary's old man just stares at the tv
Doesn't look at Mary at all
Mary just shivers like a lamb in the rain
He begins to pace, he slaps her face
Mary's mom's shattered
Little baby sister just screamin' on the kitchen floor
So Mary runs away in the middle of the night
Cause she can't stay home and be crucified

She says hey everybody here's a four letter word
And a three letter word for you

Mary has her baby in a faraway town
Nobody makes any fuss
No flowers, no tears, not a friendly face appears
Nobody cares, nobody cares
Mary gives the baby up
Stares out the window at nothin' for a couple of days
Doesn't see the baby, doesn't have the heart
And she doesn't go home to make a brand new start

She says hey everybody here's a four letter word
And a three letter word for you
