Pretty Mary K
Elliott Smith Lyrics


Almost forgot
Started to say
Rode into the sun
Past everyone
Hallelujah, pretty Mary K

I found faith in the infirmary
There's a soldier lying in bed
With a wound to the head
Calling out to pretty Mary K

Here's what you get for things that haven't happened yet

I happened upon pretty Mary K
But a soldier's uniform waved you away
I walk round the dock and talk to St. James
Though I'm already done
And ask everyone "have you seen her?"
Pretty Mary K
Have you seen her?
Pretty Mary K

Pretty Mary K walks along the dock
with some sailor's pay shoved down in her sock
Pretty Mary K with some little boy in blue
Who can't stay away from you

Pretty Mary K took him back to town
I'm down here by the bay where the water pounds
Up against the wall crying black and blue
that keeps me away from you

Pretty words that you whispered
maybe I misunderstood
Somebody's not paying attention to what they promised
and their word isn't good

Oh Mary K I can see her face
Down there in the waves painted and erased
but I know its just the reflection of the moon
a big fake resembling you

Gonna go down in the water
fill my mouth up full of sand
I'll be waiting there impatient with my dead imagination
while your with some other man

Pretty Mary K is off in somebody's room
I'm down here by the bay with my arm around the moon
But I'll be with you soon, just as soon as I've paid
I'll walk across the water with Pretty Mary K

Walk on the water pretty Mary K

This song is a good reminder that Elliot was probably the best lyric writer of his generation. The melodies are always insane but man that guy could write lyrics. Love you Elliott

And just when I thought I heard everything of his.. I love hearing this rendition. It almost feels like an entirely new song with its upbeat drums.
