Mary O’ mine, Mary o’ mine, Grew like a rose in a bower, Bloomed for a day, faded away, I lost a beautiful flower, Sweetheart and friend, right to the end; That’s why I miss her so. Chorus Oh! what a gal was Mary, Oh! what a pal she was, An angel was born on Easter morn, and God sent her down to me. Heart of my Heart was Mary, Soul of my soul divine, Though she is gone, love lingers on, for Mary old pal of mine. Second Verse Mary O’ mine, Mary o’ mine, My little playmate of childhood, Symbol for love, Sent from above, Staunch as an old oak in the wildwood; Mem’ries of old, right to the gold, Fill me with love sublime.
