Crazy Mary
The Friends of Distinction Lyrics


They call me crazy,
Crazy Mary
Because I still love him
Though society says to shun him

They said that he left me
But I feel no regret
For I loved with my best
And my love is slow to die
For I'm loved him raw
With my eyes open wide
Open wide

They called me crazy
Crazy Mary
Because I still love him
Even though he left me

But is it crazy
To love, love free
Show what you feel
Make no compromise
To satisfy the world
Outside, outside

But is it crazy
To love, love free
Show what you feel
Make no compromise
To satisfy the world
Outside, outside

Call me Crazy (crazy) Mary (Mary)
Mary (Mary)

Mary...

But is it crazy
to love (like Mary)
Give all (Like Mary)
When love comes (like Mary)
To Be (like Mary)
So free (Like Mary)
The world should be (like Mary)
Just like me (Like Mary)
Call me crazy
Call me crazy
Crazy Mary
Mary
Ooh Mary
The world should be like me
You see I'm living so free
Call me, call me
Call me crazy
Crazy...

This is what I envision angels sounding like, I just cannot comprehend a more beautiful sound.

Gary Hardwick

This is the most beautiful song ever. This vocal is one of the best I've ever heard and the harmonies-- perfect.

frances carodine

They don't make music like they used to no one talks about love

Scott Compton

What a great story told by great lyrics, harmonies, music. I love the soft "ballot ending"..such a great group; wonderful foul songs for all times. Thank you Friends!

GeneRecords

Crazy Mary was written by Jerry Peters and Anita Poree. Don't forget the arranger, tho: he's listed as Ray Cork, Jr. Arranging is a very important step in pop music, and let's put it this way there are very few arrangers alive working in pop today. You've probably noticed the results of that. The song is published by Porpete Music, Anita is Sonoma, CA and still runs the company, and she can be found and thanked by contacting BMI. It's sure got that Invictus feel tho! Sweet!

Deidre D.S.SENSE Smith

This was one of my mother's favorite songs. I use to love to hear her sing this song in her rich tone. Thank you for posting this. It takes me back to listening to Wjzz Detroit's radio station with Rosetta Hines.
