Chumbawamba

Chumbawamba were a British alternative music band that had, over a career spanning three decades, played anarcho-punk, pop-influenced music, world music, and folk music. The band's anarchist politics exhibit an irreverent attitude toward authority, and the band has been forthright in its stances on issues including animal rights, pacifism (early in their career) and later regarding class struggle, feminism, gay liberation, pop culture and anti-fascism. more »

No virgin me 
For I have sinned 
I sold my soul 
For sex and gin 

Go call a priest 
All meek and mild 
And tell him  "Mary 
Is no more a child." 

It's raining stones 
It's raining bile 
From the luxury 
Of your denial 

So I don't deny 
I don't make do 
I'll press alarms 
Place bets on truth 

I'm so up and down 
And I love what's not allowed 
I was lost  now I see: 
And now I'm growing old 

Disgracefully 
Whatever happened to Mary? 
I'll spit on floors 
And do more drugs 

Burn every bill 
Get drunk on love 
Wear next to nothing 
In the pouring rain 

Be a bad example 
And do it all again 
I'll be uncareful 
I'll cause such scenes 

And I'll never talk 
Of used-to-be's 
Tattoo my face 
I won't go grey 

Be a dancing queen 
I'm growing old disgracefully 
I'm so up and down 
And I love what's not allowed 

I was lost, now I see: 
And now I'm growing old 
Disgracefully 
Whatever happened to Mary? 

Mary, Mary 
Quite contrary
