I'm gonna tell you a story 'bout ol' Mary Lou
I mean the kind of a girl that make a fool of you
She make a young man old and an old man pay
The way she took my money was a crying shame

Mary Lou, Mary Lou she took my watch and chain
Mary Lou, Mary Lou she took my diamond ring
She took the keys to my Cadillac car
Jumped in my caddy and she drove afar

Put a detective on her trail
The post office thought they'd chase her by the mail
She got picked up and then was put in jail
Stroked the judge just to go home bail

Mary Lou, Mary Lou she took my watch and chain
Mary Lou, Mary Lou she took my diamond ring
She took the keys to my Cadillac car
Jumped in my caddy and she drove afar

She left Detroit to go to Kalamazoo
Made her a fortune out of fools like you
Met her a rich man who was married and some kids
Stroked that cat until he flipped his lid

Mary Lou, Mary Lou she took my watch and chain
Mary Lou, Mary Lou she took my diamond ring
She took the keys to my Cadillac car
Jumped in my caddy and she drove afar

She came back into town about a week ago
Told me she's sorry she had hurt me so
I had a '65 ford and a two dollar bill
The way she took that Lord, it gave me a thrill

Mary Lou, Mary Lou she took my watch and chain
Mary Lou, Mary Lou she took my diamond ring
She took the keys to my Cadillac car
Jumped in my caddy and she drove afar
