SISTER MARY

Sister Mary sitting by the fireside
Sister Mary kneels to say a prayer
Sister Mary sstanding by the alter

Sister Mary are you thinking?
Sister Mary are you dreaming?
Sister Mary do you regret?

Years ago when Mary was much younger
Went to Church to marry but despair
Fell upon our Mary for she stood alone

Sister Mary are you thinking?
Sister Mary are you dreaming?
Sister Mary do you regret?

Sunday morning meant to marry
Monday morning deep despair
Tuesday morning at the convent
Wednesday morning cut her hair

Sister Mary are you thinking?
Sister Mary are you dreaming?
Sister Mary do you regret?

Sister Mary are you thinking?
Sister Mary are you dreaming?
Sister Mary do you regret?
