Mandy was a Bahama girl (2x's)
(Mandy oh Mandy, Mandy Mine. REFRAIN)
Dark Brown hair and eyes of blue,
love nobody else but you. REFRAIN
Met her on a Saturday night
Was the happiest night of my life. REFRAIN
Married her on Bahama sands
Put a wedding ring on her hand. REFRAIN
Mandy had a little baby
Had a baby just for me. REFRAIN
Baby made my Mandy cry
Cry so hard she was sure to die. REFRAIN
Buried her on Bahama sands
With her wedding ring on her hand. REFRAIN
Mandy was a wife to me
Now she's just a memory. REFRAIN
There's a teardrop in my eye
There to remain until I die. REFRAIN
