The Searchers – Maggie May lyrics

Wake up Maggie, I think I've got somethin' 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 bein' used,
Oh Maggie I couldn't have tried anymore.

You led me away from home
Just to save ya from bein' alone
You stole my hear, 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 your everything.
I laughed at all your jokes
My love you didn't need to coax
Oh Maggie I couln't tried anymore

You led me away from home
Just to save ya from bein' alone
You stole my soul and 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 ya did was wreck my bed.
And in the morning kicked me in the head.
Oh Maggie, I couldn't have tried anymore.

Ya led me away from home
Cuz ya didn't wanna be alone.
You stole my heart, I couldn't leave ya if I tried.

I suppose I could collect my books and get on back to school.
Or steal my daddy's cue and make a livin' out of playin' pool.
Or find myself a rock n 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 ya anyway.

I wish I'd never seen your face.

I'll get on back home
One of these days.

Woooo hoooooooo
