Lyrics:
It'd been so long since I'd really been kissed
I was plagued by longing and frustration
But Mary reminded me that life can be good
That's how I spent my winter vacation

I had never been drunk before.
It was a curious sensation
I was quite warm, and so were her lips
Lovely Mary
My winter vacation

Mary I don't think you quite understand
The depths of your good deed
You raised me up out of
Obsession and depression
when I was most in need
So thank god for Zima
And wine and champagne
And the countdown to New Year's Day
But my thanks most of all
Go to you
Dear Mary
For the smile on my face today

She was a senior in high school
Planning on college at Brown
I was a sophomore at Worcester Polytech
Spending Christmas in my hometown

Though Portland is lovely at any time of year and a
Lovely city to visit
The city is twice as lovely whenever
Mary McPhereson is in it

Her eyes are blue in a dim cafe's light
And her hair is long and golden
And the way that she moves is enchanting and warm
So a shy man like I am enboldened

So though it'd been so long since I'd really been kissed
I let loose of my longing and frustration
When Mary reminded me that life can be good
That's how I spent my winter vacation

You raised me up
You gave me hope
You wiped my weariness away
So all of my thanks
Go to you
Dear Mary,
For the smile on my face today

How I Spent My Winter Vacation
