Mary's Song (Oh My My My)Mature

She said I was seven and you were nine

I looked at you like the stars that shined

in the sky, the pretty lights

and our daddies used to joke about the two of us

growing up and falling in love and our mamas smiled

and rolled their eyes and said oh my my my

take me back to the house in the backyard tree

said you'd beat me up, you were bigger than me

you never did, you never did

take me back when our world was one block wide

I dared you to kiss me and ran when you tried

just two kids, you and I

oh my my my my

I was sixteen when suddenly

I wasn't that little girl you used to see

but your eyes still shined like pretty lights

and our daddies used to joke about the two of us

they never believed we'd really fall in love

and our momas smiled and rolled their eyes

and said oh my my my

take me back to the creek beds we turned up

two a.m. riding in your truck and all I need is you next to me

take me back to the time we had our very first fight

the slamming of doors instead of kissing goodnight

you stayed outside till the morning light

oh my my my

a few years had come and gone around

we were sitting at our favorite spot in town

and you looked at me, got down on one knee

take me back to the time when we walked down the aisle

our whole town came and our momas cried

you said I do, and I did too

take me home where we met so many years before

we'll rock our babies on that very front porch

after all this time you and I

I'll be eighty-seven; you'll be eighty-nine

I'll still look at you like the stars that shine

in the sky, oh my my my 

 

I chose this song because it's one of the sweetest love songs I've ever heard and I think I can make a great love story out of it. The song itself tells a story and I like that about it.

The End
