Irish Song Lyrics - Mary Mack

There's a little girl and her name is Mary Mack
Make no mistake, she's the girl I'm gonna track
There's a lot of other fellas who would get up on her track
But I'm thinking that they'll have to get up early

Mary Mack's father's makin' Mary Mack marry me
My father's makin' me marry Mary Mack
And I'm goin' to marry Mary for my Mary
to take care of me
Well all be making merry when I marry Mary Mack

There a little lass and she has a lot of brass
has a lot of gas and her father thinks I'm gas
And I'd be a silly ass for to let the matter pass
Her father thinks she suits me fairly CHORUS

Mary and her mother do an awful lot together
In fact you hardly ever see the one without the other
Lot of people wonder whether if its Mary or her mother
Or both of them together that I'm courting CHORUS

Now the weddin's on Wednesday and everything's arranged
Soon her name wil change to mine, unless her mind is changed
And makin' the arrangements is makin' me deranged
marriage is an awful undertaking CHORUS

It's sure to be a grand affair and grander than a fair
There's gonna be a coach and pair for every pair that's there
We'll dine upon the finest fare, I'm sure to get my share
If I don't I'll be very much mistaken CHORUS
