Suddenly mary

Suddenly mary fell in the water
Were not I weary I would have caught her
I watched for a moment and scrambled in
After
Words of disownment were drowned out with
Laughter

I awoke from a peaceful sleep and found
My clothes under the table
Aesop used to make me weep but now i'm
Part of mary's fable

Suddenly mary fell in the water
I found myself married to somebody's
Daughter
Loving, she told me
Is a question of bravery
But when she started to hold me
It was closer to slavery
I got up for a bite to eat and found my
Clothes inside the icebox
I used to stand on my own two feet but
Now I sit when my new wife talks

Suddenly mary fell in the water
She floated away with the ring that i
Bought her
She had convinced me that I was a failure
I burned all my clothing and found a new
Tailor
Suddenly mary (repeat)
Suddenly mary's fine (repeat)
