JETHRO TULL - Cross-eyed Mary Lyrics

Who would be a poor man, a beggarman, a thief --If he had a rich man in his hand.And who would steal the candyFrom a laughing baby's mouthIf he could take it from the money man.Cross-eyed mary goes jumping in again.She signs no contractBut she always plays the game.Dines in hampstead villageOn expense accounted gruel,And the jack-knife barber drops her off at school.Laughing in the playground -- gets no kicks from little boys:Would rather make it with a letching grey.Or maybe her attention is drawn by aqualung,Who watches through the railings as they play.Cross-eyed mary finds it hard to get along.She's a poor man's rich girlAnd she'll do it for a song.She's a rich man stealerBut her favour's good and strong:She's the robin hood of highgate --Helps the poor man get along.
