Mighty Mighty Bosstones, The - Sister Mary Lyrics




Can you remember
the school in the slums?
Can you hear the trombone
the guitar and the drums?

Sure you remember
And you know which one
You went to the one my son
That's run by the nun's

Hey Sister Mary
can you teach me the song?
While they drag him out of there
in scandal and shame
And Mr. Cosmic the slide
will you play along?
The man in the street
he couldn't handle the fame

Can you remember
when you left the school?
Half the world seemed wonderful
the other half seemed cruel

Pardon me sir
you were half out of your mind
The magic you'd make
and then the fame you would find

Hey Sister Mary
can you teach me the song?
While they drag him out of there
in scandal and shame
And Mr. Cosmic the slide
will you play along?
The man in the street
he couldn't handle the fame

On the Eastern Standard Time
the teardrops in the rain
Sweet Anita Margarita
she was crying out in pain

Sister Mary cannot save you now
you might as well admit
You left your trombone all alone
And she held on to it

Hey Sister Mary
can you teach me the song?
While they drag him out of there
in scandal and shame
And Mr. Cosmic the slide
will you play along?
The man in the street
he couldn't handle the fame

Hey Sister Mary
can you teach me the song?
While they drag him out of there
in scandal and shame
And Mr. Cosmic the slide
will you play along?
The man in the street
he couldn't handle the fame

Hey Sister Mary [x4]

    Dude, I've never heard this song. I could have sworn I'd heard all of these guys' music...
    Looks like I need to look into this album :)
