Miss Mary Mack


Lyrics

Miss Mary Mack, Mack, Mack
All dressed in black, black, black
With silver butt’ns, butt’ns, butt’ns
All down her back, back, back

She couldn’t read, read, read
She couldn’t write, write, write
But she could smoke, smoke, smoke
Her father’s, pipe, pipe, pipe

She asked her mother, mother, mother
For fifty cents, cents, cents
To see the hippos, hippos, hippos
Jump the fence, fence, fence.
They jumped so high, high, high
They reached the sky, sky, sky
And didn’t come back, back, back
Till the 4th of July-ly-ly!

(July can’t walk, walk, walk
July can’t talk, talk, talk
July can’t eat, eat, eat
With a knife and fork, fork, fork

She asked her mother, mother, mother
For 5 cents more, more, more
To see the hippos, hippos, hippos
Jump over the door, door, door.
They jumped so low, low, low
They stubbed their toe, toe, toe
And that was the end, end, end
Of the elephant show, show, show!

Shot Version

Miss Mary Mack, Mack, Mack
All dressed in black, black, black
With silver buttons, buttons, buttons
All down her back, back, back

She asked her mother, mother, mother
For fifty cents, cents, cents
To see the elephants, elephants, elephants
Jump the fence, fence, fence.
They jumped so high, high, high
They reached the sky, sky, sky
And didn’t come back, back, back
Till the 4th of July-ly-ly!
