Suddenly Mary fell in the water
Were not I weary I would have caught her
I watched for a moment and scrambled in after
Words of disownment were drowned out with laughter

I awoke from a peaceful sleep and found my clothes under the table
Aesop used to make me weep but now I'm part of Mary's fable

Suddenly Mary fell in the water
I found myself married to somebody's daughter
"Loving," she told me
"Is a question of bravery"
But when she started to hold me
It was closer to slavery
I got up for a bite to eat and found my clothes inside the icebox
I used to stand on my own to feet but now I sit when my new wife talks

Suddenly Mary fell in the water
She floated away with the ring that I bought her
She had convinced me that I was a failure
I burned all my clothing and found a new tailor

Suddenly Mary
Suddenly Mary
Suddenly Mary
Suddenly Mary's fine
Suddenly Mary's fine
Suddenly Mary's fine
Suddenly Mary's fine
