Pretty Mary K, walks along the dock
With some sailor's pay shoved down in her sock.
Pretty Mary K, with some little boy in blue,
who can't stay away from you.
Pretty Mary K took him back to town.
I'm down here by the bay where the water pounds,
up against the wall crying black and blue,
who keeps me away from you.
Pretty words that you whispered.
maybe I misunderstood.
Somebody's not paying attention to what
they promised and their word isn't good.
Oh Mary K, I can see your face,
down there in the waves,
painted and erased
But I know it's just a reflection of the moon.
A big fake resembling you.
I'm gonna go down in the water
and fill my mouth up full of sand.
I'll be waiting still impatient with my dead imagination
while you're with some other man.
Pretty Mary K, is off in somebody's room.
I'm down here by the bay
My arm around the moon.
But I'll be with you soon
Just as soon as I'm paid.
I'll walk across the water with Pretty Mary K.
Walk on the water with Pretty Mary K
