Songtekst

Maggie was born to be a lonely soul
As a victim of father's failures
They had clearly told her which way to go
But forgotten to explain her

Always tryin' to steal the show
Always beating the rest
Always being the best

There were no other way to go
She had a very ambitious mother

Ohoho, Maggie's ambitious mother

She went to school after being miracle
Never thought of her education
'Cause mama decided which way to go
Fill her up with her own frustration

Always tryin' to steal the show
Always beating the rest
Always being the best

There were no other way to go
She had a very ambitious mother

Ohoho, Maggie's ambitious mother

Maggie, Maggie, go
Maggie, steal the show
For your daddy loves you so

When she had to do it by herself
She was unable to think about it
And her mummy said she had a lot to tell
So when she started to talk, she shouted
When she started to talk, she shouted
When she started to talk, she shouted

Maggie is still that lonely soul
But not depending on her own failures
'Cause nobody ever told her where to go
And that's what you can't explain her

Maggie's tryin' to steal the show
Maggie's beating the rest
Maggie's being the best

She's got no other way to go
She had a very ambitious mother

Maggie's tryin' to steal the show
Maggie's beating the rest
Maggie's being the best

She's got no other way to go
She had a very ambitious mother

Maggie's tryin' to steal the show
Maggie's beating the rest
Maggie's being the best

She's got no other way to go
She had a very ambitious mother

Ohoho, Maggie's ambitious mother
She had a very ambitious mother
