Court of Mary

I don’t wanna worship at the court of Mary
I don’t wanna laugh at her jokes no more
She likes to think that she’s so contrary
but all she says you know I heard before
She woke up in yesterday
bills on the table she couldn’t pay
I came back that’s how I found her
with all the jokes that now surround her

I don’t wanna worship at the court of Mary
I don’t wanna work down her mine no more
My eyes are gone and my bones are weary
I don’t care what I might have said before

Wanna walk out the sun’ll be shining
All her words just fade away
Set the sun to my own timing
and never go back again

I don’t wanna worship at the court of Mary
the others can do just as they please
Don’t wanna seem like I’m ungrateful
but now it isn’t what I need

All your jokes turned into jokers
laugh your way down to the grave
all the rumours and tombstone humour
carry them with you on your way

I don’t wanna worship at the court of Mary
