GUEST,GUEST Lyr Add: I've been having trouble meeting Mary (6) RE: Lyr Add: i've been havng trouble meeting Mary 21 Feb 20

In my time at Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine, (1971-75), the men's vocal ensemble sang this song (a la barbershop arrangement).

Bowdoin had been an all-male school for about 170 years, and this song was popular during my time there. Women joined the student population very gradually, first as transfer students, finally as incoming first-year students in my class (1975). As the number of women students accelerated, this song was left behind...although I don't know precisely when.

The weird thing is: although I never sang this song--only heard it sung--most of the lyrics stayed in the musical memory box. (Along with "I Can't Stop" by the Honeycombs" and other classic hits).
