Mary Mac

1)  Thereís a neat little lass and her name is Mary Mac

Make no mistake sheís the girl Iím gonna to track

Lots of other fellas try to get her on her back,

But Iím thinkiní that theyíll have to get up early

 

Chorus:  Mary Macís motherís making Mary Mac marry me

My motherís making me marry Mary Mac

Well Iím gonna marry Mary for my Maryís takin care of me

Weíll all be feeling merry, when I marry Mary Mac

 

2)  Now Mary and her mother go an awful lot together

In fact youíd hardly ever see the one without the other

And the people wonder whether it is Mary or her Mother

Or the both of them together that Iím courting.

Chorus:

 

3)  Well up among the heather in the hills of Benafee

Well I had a bonnie lass sitting on my knee

A bumble bee stung me right above the knee

Up among the heather in the hills of Benafee

Chorus:

 

4)  Well I said to bonnie lass how we gonna pass the day

She said among the heather in the hills of Benafee

When the boys and girls are naked as a fray

Up among the heather in the hills of Benafee

Chorus:

 

5)  The weddingís on a Wednesday and everythingís arranged

Soon her name will change to mine unless her mind is changed

And with making the arrangements Iím just about deranged

Marriage is an awful undertaking

Chorus:

 

6)  Sure to be a grand affair and grander than a fair

Thereís going to be a fork and plate for every man thatís there

And Iíll be a bugger if I donít get my share

If I donít Iíll be very much mistaken

Chorus:

 

7)  Thereís a neat little lass and her name is Mary Mac

Make no mistake sheís the girl Iím gonna to track

Lots of other fellas try to get her on her back,

But Iím thinkiní that theyíll have to get up early

Chorus:
