Kenny Price – Somebody Told Mary lyrics

Somebody told Mary Mary had to tell her friends
Jim got to work and he had to tell it over and over again
It's the hardest thing in town how the news must get around
I wanted to be the first to tell you I love you

We've been sittin' in the classroom nine long years or so
And the smile you gave me every day made me wanna know
But someone saw me as I wrote our names side by side
In a heart on my valentine to you
Now everyone knows I guess includin' you
It won't change the way I feel or the things that I do
It's been on my mind so long I'm glad they've spread the news
Now I only hope you'll say I love you too
Somebody told Mary...
