china lyrics – cracker

ah miss mary, won’t you please come home from china?
bring a bottle of whiskey and a tin cup for your teeth
but don’t you sneak into the back door wearing some disguise
and knock on the front door in view of the temperance guild

ah miss mary, won’t you please come home? ’cause i miss ya
your old spinster sister don’t always give a good advice
look at her, she’s in love with that drunken bandy-legged sheriff
he’ll unzip her pantsuit, but never leave his fat wife

so miss mary, won’t you please a come home from china?
come home from china
come home from china

miss mary, won’t you please a come home from china?
come home from china
come home from china

now that fake old beatnik poet the volunteer fireman
he don’t care if you come, he don’t care like i do
he’s in love with his dog and all the volunteer fireman
and he is afraid to let the end of his versus rhyme

so miss mary, won’t you please a come home from china?
come home from china
come home from china

ah miss mary, won’t you please a come home from china?
come home from china
come home from china
