Oh Marie

Oorspronklike Weergawe

Here she comes, she’s all dressed up in daisies
Half the time you’d swear that she is crazy
A fancy smile, a fancy dress
That’s the way we know her best
She says she is busy – but we don’t mind
’cos every night she works overtime

Oh Marie, we sure hope you’re happy
Oh Marie, what would life be without Marie?

She likes to drive those cars you find in movies
And every song she hears, she thinks is groovy
One day she’ll buy some coats of fur
Instead of spending time with Blur
She says that Rolf is hard to please
Knowing her, he’s on his knees

Oh Marie, we sure hope you’re happy
Oh Marie, what would life be without Marie?

Here she comes, she tries to make connections
The management is asking for perfection
Her mobile phone goes overload
She’s busy dialin’ some country code
She speaks fluent French, forget the rest
’cos it’s the Småland sound, we love the best

Oh Marie, we sure hope you’re happy
Oh Marie, what would life be without Marie?

Oh Marie, we sure hope you’re happy
Oh Marie, what would life be without Marie?
Without Marie?
