My mother's name was Mary, she was so good and true Because her name was Mary, she called me Mary too She wasn't gay or airy, but plain as she could be I'd hate to meet a Mary who called herself Marie ** For it is Mary, Mary, plain as any name can be But with propriety, society will say Marie But it was Mary, Mary, long before the fashions came And there is something there that sounds so square It's a grand old name Now, when her name is Mary, there is no falseness there When to Marie she'll vary, she'll surely bleach her hair Though Mary's ordinary, Marie is fair to see Don't ever fear sweet Mary, beware of sweet Marie For it is Mary, Mary, plain as any name can be But with propriety, society will say Marie But it was Mary, Mary, long before the fashions came And there is something there that sounds so square It's a grand old name ** The original lyric for this line was "I hate to meet a fairy who calls herself Marie" (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - June 2014)
