lyrics

"Won't You Be the Man"

You know I’ve got a mean streak
and my knuckles are dripping blood,
I almost killed that boy I think
I’d kill ‘em all for you, for love

Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary.

I had a dream that you were driving my dad’s car
and you leaned to kiss me as you drove us through the park
And I said, “Mary, please won’t you be the man”

If they parole me, I’ll be out by May
You come and find me; I’ll do anything you say
And I’ll say, “Mary, please, won’t you be the man?

Momma broke down when the cops came
And my dad, he broke my nose
I cried like a girl, ashamed
Blood and water soaked my clothes

Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary.

If you love me, then come take me away
We’ll get married when I get out in May
And I’ll say, “Mary, please, won’t you be the man?”
