MARY AND DIEGO (Paul O’Brien)

 

Mary and Diego

Step in from the cold

Diego a boy

Mary she’s old

She straightens his collar

Runs a hand through his hair

To show some respect

To show that we care

 

Mary and Diego

They walk down the aisle

He looks at the altar

She looks down and smiles

Only a minute

We’ll just say goodbye

They move towards the coffin

And old woman and boy

 

Mary and Diego

Make a sign of the cross

For the soul of a stranger

For the soul of the lost

A kiss on the cheek

Then whisper goodbye

And the walk from the coffin

An old woman and boy

 

A kiss from a stranger

You never can tell

A kiss and a whisper

To wish a soul well

Mary and Diego

Step into the cold

Diego a boy

Mary she’s old
