Mary and I were the perfect picture of love
But my world started spinning around 'til it wasn't enough
I tried to hang on to the heaven she made just for me
But when I slipped and fell it drove her to hell
And Lord knows that I hate to see

Mary go round, Mary go round
Mary I wish you'd stop taking your heartache to town
Why can't you see that free love ain't free?
You'll spin 'til you fall to the ground
Mary I wish that you'd never found the Mary go round

Now she's not the first to discover the devils playground
But this ain't no game and these demons ain't playing around
They'll make her believe they can drown all her pain with a drink
And if she sinks below this burn in my soul
To watch 'em all laugh as they sing

Mary go round, Mary go round
Oh Mary, I wish you'd stop taking your heartache to town
Why can't you see honey free love ain't free?
You'll spin 'til you fall to the ground
Mary I wish that you'd never found the Mary go round
You'll spin 'til you fall to the ground
Mary I curse the day that you found the Mary go round
