Lyrics:

 ^ Every time I think that I'm the only one who's lonely, someone calls on me
And every now and then I spend my time in rhyme and verse
And curse those faults in me

And then along comes Mary, and does she want to give me kicks
And be my steady chick, and give me pick of memories
Or maybe rather gather tales of all the fails and tribulations, no one ever sees

When we met I was sure out to lunch, now my empty cup tastes as sweet as the punch

When vague desire is the fire in the eyes of chicks
Whose sickness is the games they play
And when the masquerade is played and neighbor folks make jokes
As who is most to blame today

And then along comes Mary
And does she want to set them free, and let them see reality
From where she got her name, and will they struggle much when told
That such a tender touch as hers will make them not the same

When we met I was sure out to lunch, now my empty cup tastes as sweet as the punch

And when the morning of the warning's passed, the gassed
And flaccid kids are flung across the stars
The psychodramas and the traumas gone
The songs are left unsung and hung upon the scars

And then along comes Mary
And does she want to see the stains, the dead remains of all the pains
She left the night before, or will their waking eyes reflect the lies, and make them
Realize their urgent cry for sight no more

When we met I was sure out to lunch, now my empty cup tastes as sweet as the punch
