​Mary, Mary Row Your Boat

This song is by Classics IV and appears on the album Spooky (1968) and on the compilation album The Very Best Of (1975).

I been-a workin hard tryin' to make a dollar
Listenin' to my boss man holler
Tonight I'll be on the bank of the river
Waitin' for the sun to go down, singin' now

Mary, Mary row your boat now
Come on and bring it on home now
I'm gonna love you, Lord I'm gonna kiss you
Mary, Mary row your boat

Mary is the boss man's daughter
She loves me but lives upon the water
She's so pretty, Lord she's fine
That's why I sing this song of mine now

I've got plans and I'm gonna keep them
The odds aren't great but I'm gonna gonna bet 'em
Work and slave and save all my money
And carry Mary away, sing it y'all

Mary, Mary row your boat now
Come on and bring it on home now
I'm gonna love you, Lord I'm gonna kiss you
Mary, Mary row your
Mary, Mary row your
Mary, Mary row your boat

Mary, Mary (repeat and fade)
