Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Maggie dear just won’t go out alone,
Seems that she must have a chaperone,
When we go out,
No matter where we’re bound,
There is always somebody around.

[Verse 2]
Maggie dear is very sweet to me,
When she’s near I’m happy as can be,
I long to say,
“I want you for my own”
But I never can see her alone.

[Chorus Verse 1]
She brings her father, her mother, her sister and her brother,
Oh I never see Maggie alone. One night while we were out walking,
And got ‘em by the dozens,
I never see Maggie alone,
And if I ‘phone her,
Say to her sweet,
Where shall we meet.
Supposing that we eat,
She brings her father, her mother, her sister and brother,
Oh I never see Maggie alone.

[Chorus Verse 2]
She brings her father, her mother, her sister and her brother,
Oh I never see Maggie alone.
One night while we were out walking
And she got tired talking,
She invited me up to her home,
I turned the lights down,
There were too bright,
Oh what a night.
When I turned on the light,
There was her father, her mother, her sister and her brother,
Oh I never see Maggie alone.
