I love what's not allowed




"Mary, Mary"

[Spoken:] the Hail Mary

No virgin me
For I have sinned
I sold my soul
For sex and gin

Go call a priest
All meek and mild
And tell him, "Mary
Is no more a child."

It's raining stones
It's raining bile
Throw in the luxury
Of your denial

So I don't deny
I don't make do
I'll press alarms
Place bets on truth

I'm so up and down
And I love what's not allowed
I was lost, now I see
And now I'm growing old disgracefully

Whatever happened to Mary? [x5]

[Spoken:] the Hail Mary

I'll spit on floors
And do more drugs
Burn every bill
Get drunk on love

Wear next to nothing
In the pouring rain
Be a bad example
And do it all again

I'll be uncareful
I'll cause such scenes
And I'll never talk
Of used-to-be's

Tattoo my face
I won't go grey
Be a dancing queen
I'm growing old disgracefully

I'm so up and down
And I love what's not allowed
I was lost, now I see
And now I'm growing old disgracefully

Whatever happened to Mary? [x9]

Mary, Mary, Mary, quite contrary [x12]

[Spoken:] the Hail Mary [played backwards]
