Maryann, you're better than the world
They took a lot of time getting it right on this girl
I said "Maryann, you're better than the world"
They did a lot of things right on this girl

Had a lot of girlfriends
I should have known them
Click your heels and count back from three
Do you wanna go back?
You should have known that
The butterfly in reverse here is me

But Maryann, you're better than the world
They took a lot of time getting it right on this girl
I said "Maryann, you're better than the world"
They did a lot of things right on this girl

Where'd you wanna go to
With nothin' beside you?
But webbin' and curfews and rain
And everythin' that hurts you
Is locked up inside you
Like butterflies with wings
And other perfect things

We go swimmin' in the sunshine
Danglin' from clotheslines
Separate and fall into me
But did you ever seen me
Me absolutely
Me, but all you but still me

Oh Maryann, you're better than the world
They took a lot of time getting it right on this girl
I said "Maryann, you're better than the world"
They did a lot of things right on this
Did a lot of things right on this
Did a lot of things right on this girl
