Millsap, Parker - Quite Contrary Lyrics




Mary Mary quite contrary
How'd you get your eyes so scary?
Lost your pocket full of posey pawn your rings and cut your roses
Now I see you out strutting on your corner working for a man named little Jack horner

Alice Alice filled with malice got kicked out of her win palace
Tracks in her arm where she followed her rabbit she picked up all his old bad habits
Steals her curds from little miss muffet out in the alley learning how to tough it
Ashes ashes hit the ground ashmes ashes tumbilng down

Hansel and Gretel heat the Kettle smelt like burnt old tires and metal
Hansel played chef Gretel played dealer guard dog played by an old blue heeler
Hey diddle diddle the cats on the moon the folks got a lighter underneath the spoon
Ashes ashes hit the ground all grown up and all torn down
Ashes ashes hit the ground all grown up and all torn down

Mary Mary quite contrary how'd you get your eyes so scary?
Lost your pocket full of posey pawned you rings and cut your posey
Now I see you running that little street corner working for a man named little Jack

  1. Dylan Suppiah

    He's brilliant! It's like a fusion of Dylan, Woodie Guthrie and Jeff Buckley!

  2. Dennis Shafer

    WHAT THE FUCK???!!! ... ( why the profanity, Shafer? ) THIS IS THE GREATEST SONG... EVER !!! Did any of you out there even pretend to comprehend what I just said??!! I know music. Probably more than any of you. ( please , take no offense to what you perceive to be vanity. I have been " thoroughly " inspired by a great P.O.T.U.S. ) Anyway... why hasn't this song been given the highest of music awards??? THIS SHOULD BE THE ONLY WINNING RECIPIENT OF THE PRESTIGIOUS DOUBLE GILDED DELUXE GRAMMY AWARD!!! This has to be the greatest song I've ever heard.. EVER!!
