Albert Hammond - Mary Hot Lips Arizona

English

Mary Hot Lips Arizona

You came into town with your truck and your wardrobe
Your turquoise, your pills and the crew
Your cowboys, your playboys, the studs and the gay boys
Your gals and your hairdresser, too
 
And you rented a small apartment
And everyone settled in
Midst the pillows, the beads and the stereo leads
And the ups and the downs in the gin
 
Oh Mary, oh Mary, the stars of the prairie
Still shine on your high-stepping shoes
But those were the days, Mary, those were the days
When you sidestepped the Hollywood blues
 
When the money ran low, all your friends found excuses
The family soon fell apart
And you learned there's a limit to what you can do
When your purse ain't as big as your heart
 
But still you're blasting off somewhere
On something with somebody new
And nobody knows what he does, where he comes from
Nobody, least of all you
 
Oh Mary, oh Mary, the stars of the prairie
Still shine on your high-stepping shoes
But those were the days, Mary, those were the days
When you sidestepped the Hollywood blues
