If you ain't got two kids by 21,
You're probably gonna die alone
At least that's what tradition told you

And it don't matter if you don't believe,
Come Sunday morning you best be there
In the front row, like you're s'posed to

Same hurt in every heart
Same trailer, different park

Mamas hooked on Mary Kay
Brothers hooked on Mary Jane
And Daddies hooked on Mary two doors down

Mary Mary quite contrary,
We get bored so we get married
And just like dust we settle in this town
On this broken merry go 'round and 'round and 'round we go,
Where it stops nobody knows,
And it ain't slowin' down, this merry go 'round

We think the first time's good enough,
So we hold on to high school love,
Say we won't end up like our parents

Tiny little boxes in a row,
Ain't want you want it's what you know,
Just happy in the shoes you're wearin'

Same checks we're always cashin'
To buy a little more distraction

Cause Mamas hooked on Mary Kay
Brothers hooked on Mary Jane
Daddies hooked on Mary two doors down

Mary Mary quite contrary
We get bored so we get married
And just like dust we settle in this town
On this broken merry go 'round and 'round and 'round we go
Where we stop nobody knows
And it ain't slowin' down, this merry go 'round

Mary Mary quite contrary
We're so bored until we're buried
And just like dust we settle in this town
On this broken merry go 'round
Merry go 'round

Jack and Jill went up the hill,
Jack burned out on booze and pills,
And Mary had a little lamb,
Mary just don't give a damn no more
