Miss Mary
Mighty Sparrow Lyrics


Ma dis here going to be great
First I want to play I can hardly wait
Dress up like a Baptist woman
With an Old Shoebox in me hand
Charging Money dis show confusion in de band

To see Miss Mary, one Pound
She big and hairy, one pound
To see she daughter, one Pound
To See she mother, one Pound
For Carnival is here,
I have Miss Mary here
Miss Mary weighing one Pound
Come on see she, one Pound

From Tuesday Morning till
Tuesday when the sun drug behind the hill
My display may be called offbeat
But the public will have a treat
Yes it festival and excitement in Frederick Street

Girls Let me tell you now
I don't want to fight I don't want to row
When you jump in carnival day
If you happen to pass my way
Don't believe I showing you free you go back to play

Ma dis year we going to fete
Drinking till I drown, Jump until I am wet
I want to catch the public off guard
Let them say I dealing in bad
When they see Miss Mary well all of dem go mad

To see Miss Mary, one Pound
She big and hairy, one pound
To see she daughter, one Pound
To See she mother, one Pound
For Carnival is here,
I have Miss Mary here
Miss Mary weighing one Pound
Come on see she, one Pound

Miss Mary lyrics
Mas this here going to be great
First I want to play I can hardly wait
Dress up like a Baptist woman
With an Old Shoebox in me hand
Charging Money dis show confusion in de band

To see Miss Mary, one Pound
Big and hairy, one pound
To see she father, one Pound
To see she mother, one Pound
For Carnival is here,
I have Miss Mary here
Miss Mary weighing one Pound
Come on see she, one Pound

From J'overt Morning 'till
Tuesday when the sun drug behind the hill
My display may be called offbeat
But the public will have a treat
Yes it festival and excitement in Frederick Street

To see Miss Mary, one Pound
She big and hairy, one pound
To see she daughter, one Pound
To see she mother, one Pound
For Carnival is here,
I have Miss Mary here
Miss Mary weighing one Pound
Come on see she, one Pound

Girls Let me tell you now
I don't want to fight I don't want to row
When you jump in carnival day
If you happen to pass my way
Don't believe I showing you free you go back to play

To see Miss Mary, one Pound
Big and hairy, one pound
To see she daughter, one Pound
To See she mother, one Pound
For Carnival is here,
I have Miss Mary here
Miss Mary weighing one Pound
Come on see she, one Pound

Mass this year we going to fete
Drinking till I drown, Jump until I am wet
I want to catch the public off guard
Let them say I dealing in bad
When they see Miss Mary well all of them go mad

To see Miss Mary, one Pound
Big and hairy, one pound
To see she daughter, one Pound
To See she mother, one Pound
For Carnival is here,
I have Miss Mary here
Miss Mary weighing one Pound
Come on see she, one Pound
