mary of the 4th form lyrics – boomtown rats

sittin’ in the front row
mary of the fourth form
turnin’ all the boys down
she’s turnin’ all their heads around
hitchin’ up her short skirt
stretchin’ out her long legs
pullin’ up her stockings
she’s combing out her black hair
starin’ at the teacher
openin’ her lips wide
shiftin’ in her seat. yeah,
she slowly moves her hips aside

but in the middle of the night
she wakes her mom to turn out the light
her make-up’s on and her jeans are skin tight
and she’s heading to the pillar bar
johnnie looks alright tonight she thinks
he gives her a smoke and he buys her a drink
he shoots a frame and they head off into the night.

mary of the fourth form.
mary of the fourth form.
mary of the fourth form.
mary of the fourth form.

teacher’s losing control
thankfully the bell rings
mary’s left all alone
with no one but the teacher
she quickly drops her pencil
and slowly bends to get it
teacher is a natural man
his hand moves out to touch her
she straightens and looks around, yeah
she laughs and leaves the room, yeah
heartbreak for the teacher
sweet dreams for young mary

but in the middle of the night
she wakes her dad to turn out the light
her make-up’s on and her jeans are skin tight
and she’s headed to the pillar bar

johnnie looks great tonight, she thinks
he gives her a smoke and he buys her a drink
shoots a frame and they head off into the night.

mary of the fourth form.
mary of the fourth form.
mary of the fourth form.
mary of the fourth form.
