about

There should really be two singers in this song: male and female.
But, well, we've got no friends left so Louis plays both parts now.

lyrics

You've got to be at least half cannibal
To go fishing for mermaids.
Fate's a curious animal
And yours is always getting delayed.
There's a Jonah in our love boat,
There's cholera among the crew
And a beast emerging from the depths
Is looking at you.

Mary, you've been cheating on me.

You say you've been transforming
And that nothing's staying the same,
Well let me into that chrysalis darling,
Let me be a part of your change.
You're the shun in my seduction,
The lame in my flame,
You're the con in convictions,
The sham in shame.

Mary, you've been cheating on me.

You ain't the man in this romance.
You ain't the air in my affairs.
I asked the Lord for a decent chance
I must have slurred my prayers.
You ain't the only one who's cried
'Cos I ain't the only one who's been bored.
So by the time these flowers have died,
Which one of you boys will have brought me more?

We're caught in a love triangle
And geometry's not on my side.
My heart's going through the mangle
And next it'll be my pride.
You say I'm a low down lying louse,
An adulterer pending bail;
Well I may have kissed your sister once
But I promise I didn't inhale.

Mary, you've been cheating on me.

You ain't the man in this romance.
You ain't the air in my affairs.
We're making music but you don't dance,
I'm looking down but you don't dare.
And I know I was your prize
But you weren't ever mine,
You can't predict this kind of shift in the weather
This is a rain that came
From a clear sky.

Mary, you've been cheating on me.

Louis Barabbas & The Bedlam Six Manchester

Between 2006-2016 the Bedlams relentlessly peddled their peculiar brand of Dirt-Swing, capturing the imaginations of every species of listenership, winning support from the likes of Supergrass, The Mighty Boosh, Har Mar Superstar, UB40, Mark Steel, The Hell’s Angels and BBC Radio, inspiring stage invasions, dancing in the aisles and a confused mixture of exhaustion and bonhomie wherever they went ... more
