mother mary lyrics – eels

people talking sound like dogs
barking through the trees
making no sense at all
meaning nothing to me

mother mary
quite contrary
i did not mean to let you go
so quick

people talking crack me up
they don’t have a little clue
what it’s like to be me
what it’s like to lose you

mother mary
i grow weary
i did not mean to let you go
so quick

people talking sound like dogs
barking up the wrong tree
take a good man down
and set the evil free

mother mary
quite contrary
i did not mean to let you go
so quick
