Mary Got A Baby (Colleen Power) video

Mary got a baby and she's only fifteen,
You can't see Buddy for dust,
Strangled in a small town,
stuck out like a sore thumb,
Nowhere to run, nowhere to run;
Shame for the family,
Mary got a secret and the
whole dirty little town knows,
Mary thought it was love,
Buddy thought it was lust,
But it was Mary's balloon that got busted.

Mary's old man just stares at the TV,
Doesn't look at Mary at all,
Mary just shivers like a lamb in the rain,
He begins to pace, he slaps her face;
Mary's mom's shattered,
Little baby sister just
screamin' on the kitchen floor,
Mary runs away in the middle of the night,
'Cause she can't stay home and be crucified.

She says hey everybody
here's a four letter word,
And a three letter word for you.

Mary has her baby in a faraway town,
Nobody makes any fuss,
No flowers, no tears,
not a friendly face appears,
Nobody cares, nobody cares;
Mary gives the baby up,
Stares out the window at
nothin' for a couple of days,
Doesn't see the baby,
doesn't have the heart,
And she doesn't go home
to make a brand new start.

Hey everybody, here's a four letter word,
And a three letter word for you.

Mary got a baby and she's only fifteen,
You can't see Buddy for dust,
Strangled in a small town,
stuck out like a sore thumb,
Nowhere to run, nowhere to run;
Shame for the family,
Mary got a secret and the
whole dirty little town knows,
Mary thought it was love,
Buddy thought it was lust,
But it was Mary's balloon that got busted.
But it was Mary's balloon that got busted.
But it was Mary's balloon that got busted.
