Traditional

Real Media File
Thereís a nice wee lass and her nameís Mary Mac
Make no mistake, sheís the miss Iím going to take
Thereís a lot of other chaps that would get up on her track
But Iím thinking that theyíd have to get up early.

Chorus:
Mary Macís fatherís making Mary Mac marry me
My fatherís making me marry Mary Mac
And Iím going to marry Mary
To get married and take care of me
Weíll all be making merry when I marry Mary Mac.

Now this wee lass she has a lot of brass
She has a lot of gas and her father thinks Iím class
So Iíd be a silly ass to let the matter pass
Her father thinks she suits me fairly

ChorusÖ

Now Mary and her Mither gain an awful lot together
In fact you never see the one or the one without the other
And the fellows often wonder if itís Mary or her mither
Or the both of them together that Iím courtiní

ChorusÖ

Now the wedding dayís on Wednesday and everythingís arranged
Her name will soon be changed to mine unless her mind be changed
And weíre making the arrangements and Iím just a bit deranged
For marriage is an awful undertakiní

ChorusÖ

Itís sure to be a grand affair and grander than a fair
Thereís going to be a coach and pair for every couple there
Weíll dine upon the finest fare Iím sure to get my share
If I donít weíll all be very much mistaken
