There's a little girl and her name is Mary Mack Make no mistake, she's the girl I'm gonna track There's a lot of other fellas who would get up on her track But I'm thinking that they'll have to get up early CHORUS Mary Mack's father's makin' Mary Mack marry me My father's makin' me marry Mary Mack And I'm goin' to marry Mary for my Mary to take care of me Well all be making merry when I marry Mary Mack There a little lass and she has a lot of brass has a lot of gas and her father thinks I'm gas And I'd be a silly ass for to let the matter pass Her father thinks she suits me fairly CHORUS Mary and her mother do an awful lot together In fact you hardly ever see the one without the other Lot of people wonder whether if its Mary or her mother Or both of them together that I'm courting CHORUS Now the weddin's on Wednesday and everything's arranged Soon her name wil change to mine, unless her mind is changed And makin' the arrangements is makin' me deranged marriage is an awful undertaking CHORUS It's sure to be a grand affair and grander than a fair There's gonna be a coach and pair for every pair that's there We'll dine upon the finest fare, I'm sure to get my share If I don't I'll be very much mistaken CHORUS
There's a neat little lass and her name is Mari Mac Make no mistake, she's the girl I'm gonna track Lot of other fellas try to get her on her back But I'm thinking that they'll have to get up early [Chorus:] Mari Mac's mother's making Mari Mac marry me My mother's making me marry Mari Mac Well I'm going to marry Mari for when Mari's taking care of me We'll all be feeling merry when I marry Mari Mac Now Mari and her mother are an awful lot together In fact you hardly see the one without the other And people often wonder if it's Mari or her mother Or both of them together I am courting [Chorus] Well up among the heather in the hills of Bonifee Well I had a bonnie lass sitting on me knee A bumble bee stung me right above me knee Up among the heather in the hills of Benifee [Chorus] Well I said "Wee bonnie lassie, where you going to spend the day?" She said "Among the heather in the hills of Benifee" Where all the boys and girls are making out so free Up among the heather in the hills of Benifee [Chorus] The wedding's on Wednesday, everything's arranged Soon her name will be changed to mine unless her mind be changed And making the arrangements, I'm feeling quite deranged Marriage is an awful undertaking [Chorus] Sure to be a grand affair, grander than a fair Going to be a fork and plate for every man that's there And I'll be a bugger if I don't get my share If I don't we'll be very much mistaken [Chorus] There's a neat little lass and her name is Mari Mac Make no mistake, she's the girl I'm gonna track Lot of other fellas try to get up on her back I'm thinking that they'll have to get up early [Chorus] ----- **No Copyright Infringement Intended.** -----

I do not own anything. Carbon Leaf singing "Mary Mac" Lyrics: There's a wee little lass and her name is Mary Mac Make no mistake, she's the girl I'm gonna track. Lots of other fellas wanna' get up on her back, but I think they're gonna' have to get up early. Chorus: Mary Mac's mother's makin' Mary Mac marry me! My mother's makin' me marry Mary mac! Well I'm gonna marry Mary for when Mary's takin' care o' me We'll all be feelin' merry when I marry Mary Mac! Kaiyut-little-ottle-eetle-ottle-eetle-um! Now this wee lass, she has a lot of class. She has a lot of brass and her mother thinks I'm a gas. So I'd be a silly ass if I let the matter pass, for my mother thinks she suits me rather fairly. Chorus... Now Mary and her mother gang an awful lot together. In fact you hardly see the one or the one without the other. And the lads often wonder if it's Mary or her mother or the both of them together that I'm courtin'. Chorus... I said, well bonnie lass, where you gonna spend the day? She said, among the heather and the hills of Banoffee, where all the boys and girls are makin' it for free, up among the heather and the hills of Banoffee. Chorus... The wedding's on Wednesday. Everything's arranged. Soon her name will change to mine unless her mind be changed. We're makin' the arrangements and I'm just a bit deranged. For marriage is an awful undertakin'. Chorus... It's sure to be a grand affair and grander than a fair. There's gonna be a coach and pair for every couple there. We'll dine upon the finest fare. I'm sure to get my share. If I don't we'll all be very much mistaken. Chorus... There's a wee little lass and her name is Mary Mac Make no mistake, she's the girl I'm gonna track. Lots of other fellas tryin' to get up on her back, but I think they're gonna have to get up early. Chorus...
