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 hurt

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 anymore

You lured me away from home
Just to save you from being alone
You stole my heart
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
In the morning kick me in the head
Oh Maggie, I couldn't have tried anymore

Lured me away from home
'Cause you didn't want to be alone
You stole my heart
Couldn't leave you if I tried

I suppose I could collect my books and get on back to school
Steal my daddy's cue and make a living out of playing pool
Find myself a rock 'n' roll band that needs a helping hand
Oh Maggie, I wish 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

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