Mary's Song (Oh My My My)

Album: Taylor Swift (2006)
  • She said
    "I was seven, and you were nine
    I looked at you like the stars that shined
    In the sky, the pretty lights."
    And our daddies used to joke about the two of us
    Growing up and fallin' in love
    And our mamas smiled, and rolled their eyes
    And said, "Oh, my, my, my"

    Take me back to the house in the backyard tree
    Said you'd beat me up; you were bigger than me
    You never did, you never did
    Take me back when our world was one block wide
    I dared you to kiss me, and ran when you tried
    Just two kids, you and I
    Oh, my, my, my, my

    Well, I was sixteen when suddenly
    I wasn't that little girl you used to see
    But your eyes still shined, like pretty lights
    And our daddies used to joke about the two of us
    They never believed we'd really fall in love
    And our mamas smiled, and rolled their eyes
    And said, "Oh, my, my, my"

    Take me back to the creek beds we turned up
    Two AM, ridin' in your truck
    And all I need is you next to me
    Take me back to the time we had our very first fight
    Slammin' of doors 'stead of kissin' goodnight
    You stayed outside till the morning light
    Oh, my, my, my, my

    A few years had gone and come around
    We were sittin' at our favorite spot in town
    And you looked at me, got down on one knee

    Take me back to the time when we walked down the aisle
    Our whole town came, and our mamas cried
    You said, "I do," and I did too
    Take me home where we met so many years before
    We'll rock our babies on the very front porch
    After all this time, you and I

    And I'll be eighty-seven, you'll be eighty-nine
    I'll still look at you like the stars that shine in the sky
    Oh, my, my, my Writer/s: BRIAN MAHER, LIZ ROSE, TAYLOR SWIFT
