Sam Cooke — Meet Me At Mary's Place lyrics

A friend of mine told me one early mornin'
(Over at Mary's place, ho)
Said tonight there's gonna be a party goin' on
(Over at Mary's place, ho)
He said "If you can enjoy a real nice affair
(Over at Mary's place, ho)
Then you'll make it your business to be right there"
(Over at Mary's place, ho)

He said in fact: Meet me (meet me at Mary's place)
We're gonna have (we're gonna have us a ball today)
Why don't you (meet me at Mary's place)
Why don't you meet me (meet me at Mary's place)
We're gonna have (we're gonna have us a ball today)
Why don't you (meet me at Mary's place, ho)

He said: There's one thing I that want you to know
(Over at Mary's place, ho)
You're gonna have a good time before you go
(Over at Mary's place, ho)
He said: There's one more thing that I'm gonna guarantee
(Over at Mary's place, ho)
Got to have fun if you're a man like me
(Over at Mary's place, ho)

If you wanna have fun, meet me (meet me at Mary's place)
We're gonna have (we're gonna have us a ball today)
Why don't you (meet me at Mary's place)
Oh meet me (meet me at Mary's place)
We're gonna have (we're gonna have us a ball today)
Why don't you (meet me at Mary's place, ho)

If you wanna have a good time (meet me at Mary's place)
We're gonna have (we're gonna have us a ball today)
Come on & (meet me at Mary's place)
Oh, meet me (meet me at Mary's place)
We're gonna have (we're gonna have us a ball today)
Come on & (meet me at Mary's place, ho)
