The Lyrics

Again, one I thought would be obvious hasn't been done yet. I could have sworn the OS had 3 verses, not 2, and I heard the chorus first, but that's not how it was where I searched; but those can be wrong, and I think having it longer makes it more well rounded when explaining Sues. As for what a Mary Sue (or, for male characters, Marty Stu) is, it's a very common fan fiction term that I'd best let the song explain.
There’s a Mary Sue
In this fic
Main characters all fall in love with her.
Can’t see what makes all
These writer’s tick,
When they put Mary Sues in the fic.

Some Dark Ages peasant’s sister
Somehow invents the transistor
F-18s blow the Red Baron away.
Some brazen kid comes from the blue
And wins the heart of someone who
Normally wouldn’t give the time of day.

When it’s a Mary Sue,
in the part,
It’s someone who thinks every love is true.
Nothing they can’t do,
Right from the start,
When there’s a Mary Sue in the part.

With almost magic powers blessed
Seems like there’s an “S” ‘cross Sue’s chest
But scant thinking is given to the tome.
Their tenses shift like big earthquakes,
They’ll write “2 stop apply the breaks,”
You may read of Wal-Mart in Ancient Rome,

If there’s Mary Sues
In the tome,
Laws of physics may even fail to stick.
She could even get
Gilligan home
If there’s a Mary Sue in the tome.

Some near perfect characters work
A Lone Ranger or Captain Kirk
And it’s okay to have one save the day.
But even these men have their flaws,
Spock or Tonto who helps their cause
But Mary Sues just live by the cliché.

When there’s Mary Sue
In the work
They dominate and make good fics berserk.
It’s a real poor way
For fans to lurk
By putting Mary Sue in the work
By putting Mary Sue in the work
By putting Mary Sue in the work

Giving this parody a five would be a cliche, but cliches usually get that way by containing some truth. Maybe someone should do something with "Runaround Sue" (also a 1961 song) in this regard.

Good version of that old song. I'm not sure if Mary Sue is the good girl the guy ends up with or if that was a name graffitied on a wall by taggers.
