Queen Mary of the bar

Queen Mary of the bar
Music and lyrics by Andy Santospago


Would the owner of a bold, imperious soul please move along
your heart is double parked, anyone can see it don't belong
taking up two spaces, beauty can't erase the little lines that you disregard 

your grandiosity unsettles me Queen Mary of the bar
It's plain illegal Mary, yer regal bearings no excuse to 
play him like a pawn, running up and down the lawn just to amuse you
he could be your knight in armor shining bright if you let him
take the game that far
as for me I've got no strategy Queen Mary of the bar

That piece of work you found, king of another round
not fit to touch the ground that you tread upon
If you get overthrown let the truth be known 
someone would drive you home in their subway car
Queen Mary of the bar

Danger never mind, your hazel eyes are kind and so you wed him
he’d be loyal as a steed, you'd never find the need to behead him
if you're the requester he could be the jester strumming on this funny old guitar
just name the time and call the tune Queen Mary of the bar
Step off the thrown and do it soon Mary of the bar
