Rick James – Mary Jane – live 1982

Rick James’ song “Marry Jane” is not an ode to a sexy woman, but rather a love song to marijuana, something D’Angelo’s did years later on his song “Brown Sugar.” James wrote the song with his keyboard player Billy Nunn. It was his second single as a solo artist, his first being the album’s title track. Songfacts®.

Rick James – Mary Jane Lyrics:
Come here, baby. Mary, I love you. Do it girl.

Mary Jane, Mary Jane…

I’m in love with Mary Jane.
She’s my main thing.
She makes me feel alright.
She makes my heart sing.
And when I’m feeling low,
She comes as no surprise.
Turns me on with her love.
Takes me to paradise.

Do you love me, Mary Jane?
Yeah. Whoa-oh-oh.
Do ya? Do ya? Do ya? Do ya? Do ya? Do ya?
Now do you think you love me Mary Jane.
Don’t you play no games.

Mary Jane
I love her just the same.
Mary Jane
I love her, Mary baby, just the same. (Mary Jane)
The woman plays no games (Mary Jane)
Now, now, now.

I’m in love with Mary Jane.
I’m not the only one.
If Mary wanna play around,
I let her have her fun.
She’s not the kind of girl
that you can just tie down.
She likes to spread her love
and turn your head around.

Do you love me, Mary Jane?
Yeah. Whoa-oh-oh.
Do ya? Do ya? Do ya? Do ya? Do ya? Do ya?
Now do you think you love me Mary Jane.
Don’t you play no games.

Yeahhhhh! Ooowoooo.
Oh baby. Oh baby. Hit me.
Whoah, Mary. Only love.
I love you, yeah. Whooo!
Something until we give it now, lovey-dove.
Uh-huh. Wow, baby!
Sing! La-du-da-da-du-da-dahh.
Sing! La-du-da-da-du-da-dahh.
Sing it for me baby.
Come Mary, Mary Jane.
Sing it for me baby.
