Mary Mary Quite Contrary

Do you want to know what it's about? Sure you do!

You really don't.

"Mary" is Bloody Mary. You know, Elizabeth's sister?

The silver bells and cockle shells? Thumbscrews and other nasty torture devices.

The pretty maids are the Maiden, basically an English guillotine.

Mary, Mary, quite contrary,
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells and cockle shells,
And pretty maids all in a row.
