°Cross-Eyed Mary°

from the "Aqualung" album

Who would be a poor man, a beggarman, a thief
If he had a rich man in his hand
And who would steal the candy
From a laughing baby's mouth
If he could take it from the money man

Crosseyed Mary goes jumping in again
She signs no contract
But she always plays the game
Dines in Hampstead village
On expense accounted gruel
And the jackknife barber drops her off at school

Laughing in the playground gets no kicks from little boys
Would rather make it with a letching grey
Or maybe her attention is drawn by Aqualung
Who watches through the railings as they play
Crosseyed Mary finds it hard to get along

She's a poor man's rich girl
And she'll do it for a song
She's a rich man stealer
But her favour's good and strong
She's the Robin Hood of Highgate
Helps the poor man get along

Ian Anderson, grandnephew
