Billy Bragg - The Short Answer Lyrics

  • Between marx and marzipan in the dictionary there was mary
  • Between the deep blue sea and the devil that was me
  • If ever anyone could help me with my obsession with
  • The young suzannah york
  • It was mary
  • In my pink pyjamas she asked me for something
  • I gave her the short answer
  • She read our stars out loud
  • And I knew then that we should have gone sailing
  • But we stayed home instead
  • Fighting on the waterbed
  • Like the honeymoon couple on drugs
  • Me and mary
  • What happened in the past
  • Remained a mystery of natural history
  • She should have been the last
  • But she was just the latest
  • If she wanted to be a farmers wife
  • I would endure that muddy life
  • I would dig for victory
  • And the sound of happy couples
  • Coupling happily in the dark
  • While you and I sat down to tea
  • I remember you said to me
  • That no amount of poetry
  • Would mend this broken heart
  • But you can put the hoover round
  • If you want to make a start
  • All my friends from school
  • Introduce me to their spouses
  • While Im left standing here
  • With my hands down the front of my trousers
  • I just dont know whats to be done
  • I wonder sometimes how did dad meet mum
  • And how did they conceive of me
  • Tell my mary
  • The boys who came to the shop
  • Always made her laugh much more than I did
  • When I told her this must stop
  • She didnt bat an eyelid
  • She said you know honey its such a shame
  • Youll never be any good at this game
  • You bruise too easily
  • So said mary
  • Her two brothers took me out
  • Of circulation for the duration
  • So we went our separate ways but does she still love me
  • She still has my door key
  • Like a bully boy in a benetton shop
  • Youre never happy with what youve got
  • Till what youve got is gone
  • Sorry mary
