Hello Mary Lou

This song is by Creedence Clearwater Revival and appears on the album Mardi Gras (1972) and on the compilation album Chronicle, Volume Two (1986).

I said, "Hello, Mary Lou,
Goodbye, heart.
Sweet Mary Lou,
I'm so in love with you.
I knew, Mary Lou,
We'd never part.
So hello, Mary Lou,
Goodbye, heart."

Passed me by one sunny day,
Flashed those big brown eyes my way,
And ooh, I wanted you forevermore.
I'm not one that gets around,
Swear my feet stuck to the ground,
And though I never did meet you before.

I said, "Hello, Mary Lou,
Goodbye, heart.
Sweet Mary Lou,
I'm so in love with you.
I knew, Mary Lou,
We'd never part.
So hello, Mary Lou,
Goodbye, heart."

Saw your lips; I heard your voice.
Believe me, I just had no choice,
Wild horses couldn't make me stay away.
Thought about a moonlit night,
My arms around you good an' tight,
That's all I had to see for me to say.

"Hey, hey, hello, Mary Lou,
Goodbye, heart.
Sweet Mary Lou,
I'm so in love with you.
I knew, Mary Lou,
We'd never part.
So hello, Mary Lou,
Goodbye, heart.
So hello, Mary Lou,
Goodbye, heart.
Yes, hello, Mary Lou,
Goodbye, heart."
