Jimmy Loves Mary-Anne Lyrics

Jimmy Loves Mary-Anne - Looking Glass

Just seventeen

Everything that you've seen

It's all there in her eyes

 

So many years of her poor mama's tears and

Her Daddy's sweet lies

 

There's nobody home

 

Mary-Ann's alone

 

Almost fully grown

 

And worrying the why's

 

Jimmy's been down

He's been out and around and

He knows where it's at

 

Love to be good if he thought that he could

But it isn't like that

 

He don't make mistakes

 

What he makes he takes

 

Jimmy gets all the breaks

'Cause he knows how

Chorus:

 

Jimmy loves Mary-Anne

 

Jimmy wants to be a man

 

Jimmy loves Mary-Anne

She thinks it's alright

 

She's not alone but

She picks up the phone and she hears Jimmy say

 

Mother I'm beat

I'm so sick of the streets

Feel like running away

 

There's no life here at all

 

The city seems so small

 

Sweeter music is calling us away

 

Let it play

 

Jimmy loves Mary-Anne

 

Jimmy wants to be a man

 

Jimmy loves Mary-Anne

She thinks it's alright

 

This big dollar town can drag you right down

 

If you go it alone

 

Even the strong don't survive very long

When they're out on their own

 

Jimmy knows it's true

 

Mary-Anne knows it too

 

They can see each other through

If they hold on

 

Jimmy loves Mary-Anne

 

Jimmy wants to be a man

 

Jimmy loves Mary-Anne

 

She thinks it's alright

 

Jimmy loves Mary-Anne

 

Jimmy wants to be a man

 

Jimmy loves Mary-Anne

She thinks it's alright
