Cousin Mary was a lady,
Who could really hold her own;
She went fighting for her country,
She went fighting for her home.
Then there's the time she lost her husband,
He went fighting for the right.

She'll be leavin' in the morning,
Won't you please say goodnight.

All the money in the world,
Wouldn't tie old Mary down;
You can believe her when she tells you,
She's had her turn around.
There would be knights and kings in nog on horses,
Ready just to fight.

She'll be leavin' in the morning,
Won't you please say goodnight.

She'll be leavin' in the morning,
Won't you please say goodnight.

Ooooh, lovely lady,
Ooooh, lovely lady,
Always so fair.

She'll be leavin' in the morning,
Won't you please take good care.

Ooooh, lovely lady,
Ooooh, lovely lady,
Always so fair.

She'll be leavin' in the morning,
Won't you please take good care.

She'll be leavin' in the morning,
Won't you please take good care.
