[Intro]
F#   F#maj7      F#  F#maj7    F#   F#maj7      F#  F#maj7

[Verse]
   F#               F#maj7           F#
If you ain't got two kids by twenty one,
             F#maj7          B
You're probably gonna die alone.
                 F#maj7     F#
Least that's what tradition told you.
             F#maj7
And it don't matter if you don't believe,
F#                       B
Come Sunday morning, you best be there
                                           G
in the front row like you're supposed to.

[Bridge]
 G                  F#        G
Same hurt in every heart.
G                       F#maj7
Same trailer, different park.

[Chorus]
B
Mama's hooked on Mary Kay.
Brother's hooked on Mary Jane.
F#
Daddy's hooked on Mary two doors down.
B
Mary, Mary quite contrary.
We get bored, so, we get married
F#              F#maj7            D#m
Just like dust, we settle in this town.
    B                F#                            F#maj7
On this broken merry go 'round and 'round and 'round we go
D#m                    B
Where it stops nobody knows and it ain't slowin' down.
           F#
This merry go 'round.

[Instrumental]
F#   F#maj7      F#  F#maj7    F#   F#maj7      F#  F#maj7

[Verse]
   F#              F#maj7           F#
We think the first time's good enough.
            F#maj7          B
So, we hold on to high school love.
          F#maj7
Sayin' we won't end up like our parents.
F#
Tiny little boxes in a row.
                               B
Ain't what you want, it's what you know.
                                               G
Just happy in the shoes you're wearin'.
                  F#
Same checks we're always cashin'
                     F#maj7
to buy a little more distraction.

[Chorus]
B
Cause Mama's hooked on Mary Kay. Brother's hooked on Mary Jane.
F#
Daddy's hooked on Mary two doors down.
B
Mary, Mary quite contrary.
We get bored, so, we get married
F#              F#maj7            D#m
Just like dust, we settle in this town.
    B                F#                            F#maj7
On this broken merry go 'round and 'round and 'round we go
D#m                    B
Where it stops nobody knows and it ain't slowin' down.
           F#            D#m
This merry go 'round.

[Chorus 2]
B
Mary, Mary quite contrary. We're so bored until we're buried
F#                                   D#m
and Just like dust, we settle in this town.
    B                F#      F#maj7    F#      F#maj7
On this broken merry go 'round
D#m         B
Merry go round

[Outro]
              F#
Jack and Jill went up the hill.
Jack burned out on booze and pills.
D#m
And Mary had a little lamb.
F#                            F#maj7
 Mary just don't give a damn no more.
