Wake up Maggie
I think I got something to say to you
It's late September and I really should be back at school
I know I keep you amused
But I feel I'm being used

Oh
Maggie
I couldn't have tried anymore
You lured me away from home
Just to save you from being alone
You stole my heart and that's what really hurts

The morning sun
When it's in your face
Really shows your age

But that don't worry me none
In my eyes you're ev'rything
I laughed at all of your jokes
My love you didn't need to coax

Oh
Maggie
I couldn't have tried anymore
You lured me away from home
Just to save you from being alone
You stole my soul
That's a pain I can do without

All I needed was a friend to lend a guiding hand
But you turned into a lover
And
Mother
What a lover
You wore me out

All you did was wreck my bed
And in the morning kick me in the head

Oh
Maggie
I couldn't have tried anymore
You lured me away from home
'Cause you didn't want to be alone
You stole my heart, I couldn't leave you if I tried

Short music break

I suppose I could collect my books and get back to school
Or steal my daddy's cue and make a living out of playing pool
Or find myself a rock and roll band that needs a helpin' hand

Oh
Maggie
I wished I'd never seen your face
You made a first-class fool out of me
But I'm as blind as a fool can be
You stole my heart but I love you anyway

Long music break

Maggie
I wish I'd never seen your face

I'll get on back home one of these days
