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.
cross-eyed mary goes jumping in again.
she signs no contract but she always plays the game.
she dines in hampstead village on expense accounted gruel, and the jack-knife 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.
cross-eyed 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 the rich man stealer but her favour's good and strong: she's the robin hood of highgate- helps the poor man get along.
