VP_000123 Verse 1Reinie is captivating Jeanie is fascinating Gay Babette is such a sly coquette and sweet Marie is such a dear little pet While little Mary Brown is the homeliest girl in the town But Chorus 1All the boys love Mary they follow her around they chase her all around Reanie and Jeanie, Babette and Marie, Are crying what's the matter with me? But all the boys love Mary and when she laughs you'd think she's going to cry but they ain't got what Mary's got a daddy with a cellar full of you know what and all the boys love Mary coming thro' the Rye. Verse 2Reinie is quite athletic Jeanie is sympathetic Gay Babette at golf is quite a champ and sweet Marie can roll her eyes like a vamp While little Mary Brown is a sight in the handsomest gown But Chorus 2All the boys love Mary They used to be content with half of one percent Reinie and Jeanie, Babette and Marie, Are serving nothing stronger than tea. But all the boys love Mary they know just where to go when they feel dry they come in pairs from ev'rywhere and Mary winks and leads them down the cellar stairs and all the boys love Mary coming thro' the Rye.
