  • Help me, Mary, please
    I've lost my home to thieves
    They bully the stereo and drink
    They leave suspicious stains in the sink

    They make rude remarks about me
    They wonder just how wild I would be
    As they egg me on and keep me mad
    They play me like a pit bull in a basement, and for that

    I lock my door at night
    I keep my mouth shut tight
    I practice all my moves
    I memorize their stupid rules

    I make myself their friend
    I'll show them just how far I can bend
    As they egg me on and keep me mad
    They play me like a pit bull in a basement, and for that

    I'm asking you, Mary, please
    Temper my hatred with peace
    Weave my disgust into fame
    And watch how fast they run to the flame Writer/s: LIZ PHAIR
