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-Anne's alone
Almost fully grown
And worrying the why's

Jimmy's been down
He's been out and around and
He knows where its 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

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 hears Jimmy say
Mother I'm beat
I'm so sick of the streets
Feel like running away
Theres 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
