Aimee Mann - Calling On Mary Lyrics




I heard the sidewalk Santa say
Merry Christmas, merry Christmas
Salvation's coming cheap today
Merry Christmas, merry Christmas

I searched the skyline for a star
Merry Christmas, merry Christmas
And, baby, I wondered where you are
Merry Christmas, merry Christmas

'Cause comfort's not possible when
You look past the joy to the end

Calling on Mary is voluntary
Unless you're alone like me
If there's a star above, then it can look like love
When they light up the Christmas tree

When I was young, I couldn't see
Merry Christmas, merry Christmas
All that my true love gave to me
Merry Christmas, merry Christmas

She offered sight to the blind
But I'm not the miracle kind

Calling on Mary is voluntary
Unless you're alone like me
If there's a star above, then it can look like love
When they light up the Christmas tree

And to all the lost souls down below
Merry Christmas, merry Christmas
What's one more drifter in the snow?
Merry Christmas, merry Christmas
Merry Christmas, merry Christmas

If there's a star above, then it can look like love
When they light up the Christmas tree
If there's a star above, then it can look like love
When they light up the Christmas tree

    Just heard a snippet of this on Hilary Swank her IG story, had to look it up, great song.

    This is my favorite Christmas song ever. Discovered it the season that my kitty died. It's bittersweet thinking of that year :'(

    I'm a big fan of the angry Christmas song genre.

    I'm not the miracle kind- don't you love Aimee's lyrics?

    Aimee has been one of my top three, female, singer/songwriters for many years (since 1983-1985) when she co-founded the band, "Till Tuesday. I loved her small role in the movie "The Big Lebowski" as the; "missing the right little green toe German nihilist." Aimee's songs, music and lyrics are intelligent, heartfelt and passionate. She has such a unique, sultry, tugging at the heart voice, which for me, my wife and children is simply ...  heavenly. In our humble opinion, she truly is an American treasure. "Calling on Mary" is a perfect example of what I've posted here. Grace and blessings to all.
