About Along Comes Mary

"Along Comes Mary" is a song composed by Tandyn Almer, originally recorded in 1966 by the Association, and released on their debut album And Then... Along Comes the Association. It was their first hit and reached number seven on the U. S. charts. "Along Comes Mary" is sung from the point of view of a once-disillusioned young man talking about the "tribulations no one ever sees" and who "curse[s] those faults in me." The singer believes Mary gives him comfort and improves his life. An acquaintance of Almer claimed in an interview that "Mary" refers to marijuana, though it is unclear if Almer ever confirmed this. In the Young People's Concert titled What Is a Mode?, Leonard Bernstein explained that the song was composed in the Dorian mode. The song has been covered by several artists, most notably the Bloodhound Gang.

Every time I think that I'm the only one who's lonely 

Someone calls on me 

And every now and then I spend my time in rhyme and verse 

And curse those faults in me 



And then along comes Mary 

Then along comes Mary 

And does she want to give me kicks , and be my steady chick 

And give me pick of memories 

Or maybe rather gather tales of all the fails and tribulations 

No one ever sees 



When we met I was sure out to lunch 

Now my empty cup tastes as sweet as the punch 

Sweet as the punch 



When vague desire is the fire in the eyes of chicks 

Whose sickness is the games they play 

And when the masquerade is played and neighbor folks make jokes 

As who is most to blame today 



And then along comes Mary 

Then along comes Mary 

And does she want to set them free, and let them see reality 

>From where she got her name 

And will they struggle much when told that such a tender touch as hers 

Will make them not the same 



When we met I was sure out to lunch 

Now my empty cup tastes as sweet as the punch 

Sweet as the punch 



And when the morning of the warning's passed, the gassed 

And flaccid kids are flung across the stars 

The psychodramas and the traumas gone 

The songs are left unsung and hung upon the scars 



And then along comes Mary 

Then along comes Mary 

And does she want to see the stains, the dead remains of all the pains 

She left the night before 

Or will their waking eyes reflect the lies, and make them 

Realize their urgent cry for sight no more 



When we met I was sure out to lunch 

Now my empty cup tastes as sweet as the punch 

Sweet as the punch
