Mandy

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
