Love Maggie may....
When I was a younger man and didn't like to dance this song made me dance.
Makes me think of my lovely girl-friend Maggie. She doesn't exactly meet the song's description, but the fact that it's such a beautifully written and sung song makes me think of her. God, Stewart's the man!
There is an ancient ,Metaphysica l Law...that says : If We Desire, more
Abundance--i n Our Lives...We have to allow Ourselves--t h e Great Opportunity. . . to Lovingly RECEIVE, the GOOD-- We SEEK

We All Change, as We GROW (that's how We know...we're growing)

Be a Wonderful, Pleasant Friend...wit h Admiration & Please Be Happier
As Your Own Heart, Dearly Appreciates Them, Genuinely speaking--
You know, in a way...that Perfectly-- suits Your Own Heart :-)(-:
Love this song. Reminds me when I was a student in NY.
I think I just realized this song is about falling in love with an older woman? lol...

With the really shows your age lyric, and you turned into a mother...
This song reminds me of this 30- something years old Maggie I knew who was dating a 17 year old kid.Strange. . .
Best song ever! One of Rod's best! Saw him perform it in 1970 & in 2009.

I liked Stewart back when played with Jeff Beck. Truth is still one of my favorite albums.

Still a favorite!

I was 14 in 1971 when this came out. I had been a fan of top-40 AM radio (with all its silly countdowns and contests), but the AM tuner on my radio broke, leading me to explore FM, and this is one of the first songs I regularly heard there. Great memories. It's a shame Rod later degenerated to "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy" and other schlock. He did his best work back then.
um ...mr may really? "wake up mr. may i think i got somthin to say to say to you." i dont think so mr. floydzoot
this song reminds me of college and this guy who played the beginning on his acoustic guitar in the dorm hallway in the evenings.... . . g o o d timz

This song dates way back to 1971 and from the first time I heard it, I loved it. It will always be my all time favorite song. In his hey day he really put on some great concerts I have been to at least 4 of them!

the bass line is classic...i believe it's ron wood playing it, and he and rod go waaaaayyy back!!!!!
classic
The thing is he originally wrote this song about his older gym coach Mr May. But the other teachers used to call him something completely different. The record company made Rod change the first word to Maggie.
good tune
I'm not a big Rod Stewart fan, but I like this song and his other song called Faith of the Heart, which is on the Patch Adams soundtrack.

this is a true-to-life rendition of love for an older woman. and i should know.
This crap has been played to death. That and Da Ya Think I'm Sexy. Rod Stewart has done songs much better than this.

OH GOOD YOU FIXED THE LYRICS
oui33
A true classic; in spite of it having one of the laziest displays of drumming ever recorded!
swithrow1219
camden is right the lyrics are wrong
The lyrics are wrong...
One of those songs you NEVER change when it comes on the radio! I can remember taking my little sister to a couple of Rod Stewart concerts over twenty years ago. The response from the audience when he sang this was HUGE! Love it, love it, love it!
My Fav!!!
great song
fckn rocks
