Colin Hay

Colin Hay's, "Maggie"
Better Lyrics:
When I first laid my eyes on you
I screamed, all shook up
Then I stomped on you
I'd throw you into the sea
I gave you to a bear
Just me again,
And there you are so pale and lame
I knew i'd hate you then
You said you did the same

Oh maggot, what have you done?
You should've just left squirming.
I'll hate you till i'm gone
Oh maggot, I hate you so much
I won't wait up for you
Make sure you are dead
I hate you
Original Lyrics:
when i first set eyes on you
first you beat me up
then you kissed me too
we'd throw stones into the sea
there were no others there
just you and me
across the bridge and down the lane
i knew i loved you then
you said you did the same

oh maggie, what have you done?
i should have seen it coming
into your sight i'd run
oh maggie, come to me tonight
i will wait up for you
make sure you're alright
i miss you
