Year: 1983

Lyrics:
[Instrumental intro]

[Verse 1]
Who would be a poor man a beggarman, a thief
If he had a rich man in his hand
And who would steal the candy from a laughing baby’s mouth
If he could take it from the money man

[Chorus 1]
Cross-eyed Mary goes jumping in again
She signs no contract but she always plays it clean
She dines in Hampstead village on expense accounted gruel
And the jack knife barber drops her off at school

[Verse 2]
Laughing in the playground gets no kicks from little boys
Would rather make it with a letching gray
Or maybe her attention is drawn by Aqualung
Who watches through the railings as they play

[Chorus 2]
Cross-eyed Mary finds it hard to get along
A poor man’s rich girl and she’ll do it for a song
A rich man’s stealer but her favour’s good and strong
She’s the Robin Hood of Highgate let the poor man get along

[Guitar solo: Adrian Smith]

[Verse 3]
Laughing in the playground gets no kicks from little boys
Would rather make it with a letching gray
Or maybe her attention is drawn by Aqualung
Who watches through the railings as they play

[Chorus 1]
Cross-eyed Mary goes jumping in again
She signs no contract but she always plays it clean
She dines in Hampstead village on expense accounted gruel
And the jack knife barber drops her off at school

Cross-eyed Mary

Ooohh, Mary

Cross-eyed Mary
