By Rod Stewart

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 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 everything.
I laughed at all your jokes, my love you didn't need to coax,
Oh Maggie, I couldn't have tried any more.
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 any more.
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.

I suppose I could collect my books and get on 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 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.
= COME BACK MAGGIE
(A Poem to a Loyal Dame)

Come back Maggie I think your poor country's in need of you,
It's mid-September, Brown's still PM and that ain't cool,
I know your 'Thatcher Years' are viewed by some with tears,
But Maggie you couldn't have done any more.
You led us to victory, saved the Falklands from the Argies,
Just one loyal dame with a handbag and blue hat.

Years go by and all take a toll, now you show your age,
But it don't worry me, gee, in my eyes you're everythin',
You laughed at Reagan's jokes, his love you didn't need to coax,
Ooh, Maggie you couldn't have done any more.
You ruled with a rod of iron, but you suited us all just fine,
We knew how we stood and that's what really counts.

All we needed was a loyal, guiding female's hand,
But you turned into a heavy and mama you could frighten the bravest man!
For power you had a thirst, yet your country still came first,
Ooh Maggie you couldn't have tried any more.
No male ever bullied you, ha! the foot was in the other shoe!
(You'd make mincemeat of Bush and oily Blair!)

I suppose I may yield my vote to young Cameron (Dave)
But deep in my mind I know he is not the one to save
Our kingdom from all of its ills, his promises lie unfulfilled,
Ooh Maggie, your ailing country is needin' you;
You could still be a femme fatale, our aged, unyielding gal,
Time to come back, iron dame, and make my day!
