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 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 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

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 'n' roll band
That needs a helping 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 you anyway

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

YOU WEAR IT WELL - 02/09/1972
1 week at #1 - 12 weeks on chart

I had nothing to do on this hot afternoon
But to settle down and write you a line
I've been meaning to phone you
But from Minnesota
Hell it's been a very long time
You wear it well
A little old fashioned, but that's all right

Well I suppose you're thinking I bet he's sinking
Or he wouldn't get in touch with me
Oh I ain't begging or losing my head
I sure do want you to know
That you wear it well
There ain't a lady in the land so fine, oh my

Remember those basement parties, your brother's karate
The all day rock 'n' roll shows
Them homesick blues and the radical views
Haven't left a mark on you
You wear it well
A little out of time, but I don't mind

But I ain't forgetting that you were once mine
But I blew it without even tryin'
Now I'm eatin' my heart out
Tryin' to get a letter through

Since you've been gone it's hard to carry on
I'm gonna write about the birthday gown that I bought in town
When you sat down and cried on the stairs
You knew it didn't cost the earth, but for what it's worth
You make me feel a millionaire and you wear it well
Madame Onassis got nothing on you, no no

And when my coffee's cold and I'm getting told
That I gotta get back to work
So when the sun goes low and you're home all alone
Think of me and try not to laugh and I'll wear it well
I don't object if you call collect
'cos I ain't forgetting that you were once mine
But I blew it without even tryin'
Now I'm eatin' my heart out
Tryin' to get back to you

I love ya, I love ya, I love ya, I love ya

After all this it's still the same address
Since you've been gone it's hard to carry on

SAILING - 06/09/1975
4 weeks at #1 - 34 weeks on chart

I am sailing, I am sailing, home again 'cross the sea
I am sailing stormy waters, to be near you, to be free

I am flying, I am flying, like a bird 'cross the sky
I am flying, passing high clouds, to be near you, to be free

Can you hear me, can you hear me, through the dark night far away
I am dying, forever crying, to be near you, who can say

Can you hear me, can you hear me, through the dark night far away
I am dying, forever crying, to be near you, who can say

We are sailing, we are sailing, home again, 'cross the sea
We are sailing, stormy waters, to be near you, to be free

Oh Lord, to be near you, to be free
Oh my Lord, to be near you, to be free
Oh my Lord, to be near you, to be free
Oh Lord

I DON'T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT
AA with THE FIRST CUT IS THE DEEPEST
21/05/1977 - 4 weeks at #1 - 13 weeks on chart

I can tell by your eyes that you've probably been cryin' forever
And the stars in the sky don't mean nothin' to you, they're a mirror

I don't wanna talk about it, how you broke my heart
If I stay here just a little bit longer
If I stay here, won't you listen to my heart, whoa, my heart

If I stand all alone, will the shadow hide the colour of my heart
Blue for the tears, black for the night's fears
The stars in the sky don't mean nothin' to you, they're a mirror

I don't wanna talk about it, how you broke my heart
If I stay here just a little bit longer
If I stay here, won't you listen to my heart
Whoa, my heart

I don't wanna talk about it, how you broke this old heart
If I stay here just a little bit longer
If I stay here, won't you listen to my heart, whoa, my heart
My heart, whoa, my heart

FIRST CUT IS THE DEEPEST - 21/05/1977
AA with I DON'T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT
4 weeks at #1 - 13 weeks on chart

I would have given you all of my heart
But there's someone who's torn it apart
And she's taken just all that I had
But if you want I'll try to love again

Baby I'll try to love again but I know
The first cut is the deepest
Baby I know the first cut is the deepest
When it come to being lucky she's cursed
When it come to loving me she's the worst

I still want you by my side
Just to help me dry the tears that I've cried
And I'm sure gonna give you a try
And if you want I'll try to love again

Baby I'll try to love again but I know
The first cut is the deepest
Baby I know the first cut is the deepest
When it comes to being lucky she's cursed
When it comes to loving me she's worst

I still want you by my side
Just to help me dry the tears that I've cried
And I'm sure gonna give you a try
'cause if you want I'll try to love again
Baby I'll try to love again but I know
Oohh
The first cut is the deepest
Baby I know the first cut is the deepest
When it come to being lucky she's cursed
When it come to loving me she's worst

DA YA THINK I'M SEXY - 02/12/1978
1 week at #1 - 13 weeks on chart

Sugar, Sugar, mmm
Oohhh

She sits alone waiting for suggestions
He's so nervous avoiding all the questions
His lips are dry her heart is gently pounding
Don't you just know exactly what they're thinking

If you want my body and you think I'm sexy
Come on sugar let me know
If you really need me just reach out and touch me
Come on honey tell me so
Tell me so babe

He's acting shy looking for an answer
Come on honey, let's spend the night together
Now hold on a minute before we go much further
Give me a dime so I can 'phone my mother
They catch a cab to his high rise apartment
At last he can tell her exactly what his heart meant

If you want my body and you think I'm sexy
Come on honey tell me so
If you really need me just reach out and touch me
Come on sugar let me know

His heart's beating like a drum
'cos at last he's got his girl home
Relax baby now we're alone
Oh

They wake at dawn 'cos all the birds are singing
Two total strangers but that ain't what they're thinking
Outside it's cold, misty and it's raining
They got each other neither one's complaining
He say's I sorry but I'm out of milk and coffee
Never mind sugar we can watch the early movie

If you want my body and you think I'm sexy
Come on sugar let me know
If you really need me just reach out and touch me
Come on honey tell me so
Oh

If you really need me just reach out and touch me
Come on sugar let me know
If you really, really, really, really need me
Just let me know
Just reach out and touch me, mmm
If you really want me
Just reach out and touch me
Come on sugar let me know
If you really need me just reach out and touch me
Come on sugar let me know
If you, if you, if you really need me
Just come on and tell me so

BABY JANE - 02/07/1983
3 weeks at #1 - 14 weeks on chart

Baby Jane don't leave me hanging on the line
I knew you when you had no one to talk to
Now you're moving in high society
Don't forget I know secrets about you
I used to think you were on my side
But now I'm no longer sure
I wish I knew what I know now, before

When I give my heart again
I know, it's gonna last forever
No one tell me where or when
I know, it's gonna last forever

Baby Jane don't it make you feel sad
Just when I thought that we were winning
You and I were so close in every way
Don't time fly when you're loving and laughing
I've said goodbye so many times
The situation ain't all that new
Optimism's my best defense
I'll get through without you

When I give my heart again I know
It's gonna last forever
No one tell me where or when I know
It's gonna last forever
I won't be that dumb again I know
It's gotta last forever
When I fall in love again I know
It's gonna last forever

Baby Jane I've said all I want to say
Go your own way don't think twice about me
Cause I've got ideas and plans of my own
So long darlin' I'll miss you believe me
The lesson learned was so hard to swallow
But I know that I'll survive
I'm gonna take a good look at myself and cry
Yeah

When I give my heart again
I know, it's gonna last forever
No one tell me where or when
I know, it's gonna last forever
When I fall in love next time
I know, it's gonna last forever
I won't be that dumb again
I know, it'll last forever
