Mary Mack There's a nice wee lass and her name is Mary Mack Make no mistake, she's the miss I'm goin' tae tak There's a lot of other chaps who would get up on her track But I'm thinking they'll have to getup early Mary Mack's faither's makin' Mary Mack marry me My faither's makin' me marry Mary Mack And I'm goin' tae marry Mary tae get married an' tak care of me Well a' be making merry when I marry Mary Mack This wee lass she has a lot of brass She has a lot of gas, her faither thinks I'm class And I'd be a silly ass tae let the matter pass Her faither thinks she suits me fairly Noo Mary and her mither gang an awful lot together In fact you niver see the one, or the one wioot the ither And the fellow often wonder if its Mary or her mither Or the both of them together that I'm courting Noo the weddin day's on Wednesday and everything's arranged Her name will soon be changed tae mine, unless her mind be changed And wi' makin' the arrangements, faith, I'm just aboot deranged For marriage is an awful undertakin' It's sure tae be a grand affair and grander than a fair A coach and pair for rich and poor and every pair that's there We'll dine upon the finest fare, I'm sure tae get my share If I don't we'll all be very much mistaken _______ from the singing of Jake Mitchell of Peterhead.
