Wake up Maggie
I think I've 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 any more
You led me away from home
Just to save you from being alone
You stole my heart
And that's a pain I could do without

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 everything
I laughed at all of your jokes
My love you didn't need to coax

Oh, Maggie
I couldn't have tried any more
You led me away from home
Just to save you from being 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 you did was wreck my bed
And in the morning kick me in the head

Oh, Maggie
I couldn't have tried any more
You led me away from home
'Cause you didn't wanna be alone
You stole my heart
I couldn't leave you if I tried

Now I suppose I could collect my books
Get on back to school
Or steal my daddy's cue
And make a living playing pool
Or find myself a rock and roll band
That needs a helpin' hand

Oh, Maggie
I couldn't have tried anymore
You made a first class fool out of me
I'm as blind as a fool can be
You stole my heart
But I love you anyway

Maggie, I wished I'd never seen your face
Yeah
I'll get on back home one of these days
Yeah
