Yeah Jenny was a kind you'd call up late for a date on Friday night
Didn't ever matter how much I had to drink she'd come and give me a ride
Yeah Becky was a hell-raising dart throwing girl that could match me beer for beer
Holly was a singer with stars in her eyes and Mary was the marrying kind

Gretchen was a grad student working on her masters, a little too smart for me
Tammy was a teacher her daddy was a preacher evil as a girl could be
Yeah Megan was a millionaire senator's daughter my collar was too damn blue
Miss Virginia sure was fine but Mary was the marrying kind

Oh Mary, Mary
Couldn't see it at the time
Oh Marry, Marry
How could I've been so blind?

Mary was a blond haired blue eyed girl next door with an angel face
I figure I could find her wild side so I took her on a couple of dates
She was sweet and smart, a queen size heart nothing like the other girls
She just laughed at my best line cause Mary was the marrying kind

Oh Mary, Mary
Couldn't see it at the time
Oh Mary, Mary
How could I've been so blind?

She was something different
Didn't know what I was missing
My best friend proved what I already knew
Mary was the marrying kind

Oh Mary, Mary
Couldn't see it at the time
Oh Mary, Mary
How could I've been so blind?

Oh Mary, Mary
Couldn't see it at the time
Oh Mary, Mary
How could I've been so blind?

Oh, I didn't see it
Babe I didn't see it
How could I've been so blind?

Song facts

"It's the story of what every man in this world goes through at some point," Moore said of the song, which is modeled after a true story from his life. "It's the story of the one that got away that you should have paid attention to. Every town, every city, everybody knows one."
