What Will Mary Say
Jay & The Americans Lyrics


I must be going (don't go)
My heart is showing (don't go)
I better hurry away
If I don't leave I'll be sorry
What will my Mary say

Your lips are thrilling
My arms are willing
I know that I shouldn't stay
If I don't leave I'll be sorry
What will my Mary say

What would I do if she should meet me
And find me kissing you
She's always trusted me completely
Her poor heart would break in two

I must be going (don't go)
My heart is showing (don't go)
I better hurry away
If I don't leave I'll be sorry
What will my Mary say

If I don't leave I'll be sorry
What will my Mary say

(Don't go)
(Don't go)

Wow! This is my favorite version of the classic. Jay Black's voice is so powerful and full of emotion. Wonderful!

I try to see him in person whenever he performs locally, usually at the Basie theatre in Red Bank. He still has a powerful voice to go along with his sometimes comical routine.

Betty Scarselli

He has a gorgeous voice

One in a million voice. Where is the talent today? Or does anyone care- maybe its too easy to be mediocre..

David Walsh

Please don't make negative comments like this. Every era has its great singers and songs.
