W:Well, I know a pretty lassie and her name is Mary Mac,
W:and make no mistake, she's the lass I'm going to take.
W:There's lots of other men would like to get upon her track,
W:but if they do, they'll have to get up early.
W:
W:Chorus:
W:Mary Mac's mother's making Mary Mac marry me,
W:and my mother's making me marry Mary Mac.
W:If I'm going to marry Mary, Mary will take care of me.
W:We'll all be making merry when I marry Mary Mac.
W:
W:Well, the wedding's on a Wednesday and everything's arranged.
W:Her name will soon be changed to mine, if her mind's not changed.
W:We're making the arrangements and I'm just about deranged
W:'cause marriage is an aweful undertaking.
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:Well, it's going to be a grand affair, grander than a fair.
W:There's bound to be a lot of punters there to get their share.
W:There's bound to be a horse and cart for every pair that's there,
W:and if there's not I'm very much mistaken.
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:Well, Mary and her mother spend a lot of time together,
W:and you very seldom see them, the one without the other.
W:The lads they often wonder if it's Mary or her mother
W:or both of them together that I'm courting.
W:
W:Chorus
