Songs about love
VP_001255 Verse 1There is a little girlie in a little country town, Her name is Mary Brown, she never left the town; Mary's not contrary and she seldom wears a frown, Rain or shine is all the same to Mary; If she had a sweetheart no one ever knew his name, Why Mary would exclaim, "I love them all the same"; Ev'ry girl in town has tried to play her little game, But none of them had anything on Mary. Chorus 1Ev'ryone in town likes Mary, Mary, Captivating Mary Brown; She'd have a smile for Belle, A little kiss for Nell, A hug and squeeze for bashful Lily, pleasant words for Ed and Willie; She was always bright and airy, airy, Never, never sad or blue; Ev'ryone in town likes Mary, And I know that you would like her too. Verse 2When Mary left the country with a bonnet on her head, 'Most ev'rybody said, she's going away to wed; She was asked to marry, but she came back home instead, City chaps all looked alike to Mary; Mary's Uncle Silas was a multimillionaire, His health was only fair, and she his only heir; When her Uncle passed away, her friends from here and there, Came in to offer sympathy to Mary.
