Mary Hot Lips Arizona Lyrics

Mary Hot Lips Arizona - Albert Hammond

You came into town with your truck and your wardrobe

 

Your turquoise, your pills and the crew

 

Your cowboys, your playboys,

The studs and the gay boys

Your gals and your hairdresser, too

 

And you rented a small apartment,

 

And everyone settled in

 

Midst the pillows,

The beads and the stereo leads

 

And the ups and the downs in the gin

 

Oh Mary, oh Mary, the stars of the prairie

Still shine on your high stepping shining on your shoes

 

But those were the days, Mary,

 

Those were the days

When you side stepped the Hollywood blues

 

When the money ran low all your friends found excuses

The family soon fell apart

 

And you learned there's a limit to what you can do

When your purse ain't as big as your heart

 

But still you're blasting off somewhere

 

On something with somebody new

 

And nobody knows what he does,

Where he comes from, nobody, least of all you

 

Oh Mary, oh Mary, the stars of the prairie

Still shine on your high stepping shoes

 

But those were the days, Mary, those were the days

When you side stepped the Hollywood blues
