Hello music loves! Does anyone has the lyrics for Mary Mary by Goats don't shave? I'm performing it on Thursday and I haven't got a clue how to find it.

Cheers! Carl (Flapjacks)

Do you have any lyrics at all? Asking a search engine for Mary might crash the whole Internet! I looked under Goats Don't Shave, and found no lyrics for Mary Mary.

"Mary Mary" was recorded by Goats Don't Shave on "The Rusty Razor," 1997. Authorship is credited to "Gallagher" which could be either Pat Gallagher or Mick Gallagher, who are both members of the group. Maybe someone will be able to use this info to find the lyrics.

Two lines of the chorus are from a nursery rhyme:

Mary, Mary, quite contrary,
How does your garden grow?

Abuwood is a member and lives near Kidderminster, GUEST, but I suppose they don't allow her to her use cookies while she's visiting Hungary.

OK Snuffy, thanks for the heads up!

That song is about a girl named Mary from the town Dungloe.

Which is pronounced "Done low" w/emphasis on the first syllable.

It refers to the annual Mary of Dungloe festival (tongue in cheek, of course) which is a pretty big festival in the area in summer. An Irish or Irish Diaspora Mary is chosen to reign over the festivities each year.

In case anyone cares.

Soryy, I've not got the lyrics. I've not got any of the GDS albums, but I've seen them perform in Donegal, singing the song, but that was long ago. Good luck findling the lyrics.

They found a girl called Mary. They searched in every pub.
Blinded by the whiskey, they (crammed??? for a mickey??? bum???).

Chorus:
Mary, Mary, quite contrary, how does your garden grow?
Mary, Mary, quite contrary, my Mary from Donlough.

Because of the other number of legs, and the boots all packed with cows

Chorus

(solo = chorus)

See the German girl with the backpack there that’s bigger than a caravan
Who empty a pint of Guinness twice as fast as any man
There was reels and jigs and Celtic rigs, and a smokin' fiddlers bow
And we raised our empty glasses to the Mary from Donlough.

Chorus x 2
