"Lazy Mary" lyrics:
Lazy Mary, will you get up,
Will you get up, will you get up?
Lazy Mary, will you get up,
Will you get up today?

No, no Mother, I won't get up,
I won't get up, I won't get up.
No, no Mother, I won't get up,
I won't get up today.

Additional Versions:
Version 1

Lazy Mary, will you get up,
Will you get up, will you get up?
Lazy Mary, will you get up,
Will you get up today?

No, no Mother, I won't get up,
I won't get up, I won't get up.
No, no Mother, I won't get up,
I won't get up today.

(Mother Goose Club Version)
Version 2

O lazy Mary, will you get up?
Will you get up, will you get up?
O lazy Mary, will you get up,
So early in the morning

O no, dear mother, I won't get up,
I won't, I won't, I won't get up.
O no, dear mother, I won't get up
So early in the morning.

O what'll you give me for my breakfast?
For my, for my, for my breakfast,
O what'll you give me for my breakfast,
So early in the morning.

A little bowl of bread and milk,
Bread and milk, bread and milk,
A little bowl of bread and milk,
So early in the morning.

O then, dear mother, I won't get up,
I won't, I won't, I won't get up,
O then, dear mother, I won't get up,
So early in the morning.

Version 3

Lazy Mary, will you get up,
Will you, will you, will you get up?
Lazy Mary, will you get up,
Will you get up today?

What will you give me for my breakfast,
If I get up, if I get up?
What will you give me for my breakfast,
If I get up today?
