You passed me by one sunny day,  Flashed those big brown eyes my way,
And ooh I wanted you for ever more.
Now I'm not one that gets around, I swear my feet's stuck to the ground,
And though I never did meet you before.  I said:
I saw your lips, I heard your voice, Believe me I just had no choice,
Wild horses couldn't make me stay away.
I thought about a moonlit night, My arms around you good and tight,
That's all I had to see for me to say.  I said:
Hello Mary Lou, goodbye heart,
Sweet Mary Lou I'm so in love with you.
I knew Mary Lou, we'd never part,
So Hello Mary Lou, goodbye heart.
