American Old Time Song Lyrics: 61 Maggie Maguire
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 61
Copyright, 1895, by Howard & Co. .
Of pretty girls the singers sing, and poets of them write,
But Jimmy Johnson has a girl who's simply "out of sight;"
Indoors or out, he raves about their happy wedding day,
And seated by her side each night, he'll take her hand and say:
Oh! Maggie Maguire, believe me, my girl, I adore you,
My heart's all afire, and I'll do anything for you;
Name the day, don't turn me away, I'm lonely when you roam,
Say you'll be true and I'll marry you as soon as I buy the home.
They often have a quarrel, just like others, her and Jim,
And then for days she'll pass him by, won't even nod to him:
Somehow they always "mage up," though when Jimmy to her brings
A little present, which be gives, as pleadingly be sings:-Chorus.
