from Maggie the Pirate
Book by James Armstrong
Music and lyrics by Joshua H. Cohen
Performed by Kate Margaret McCann
Accompanied by Eric Walton
This is a song in two parts. In the first part, Maggie is setting out to return to the library another mind-numbing book about ordinary people doing ordinary things. On the way, she tries to resist a mugger -- the book isn't hers, after all -- and winds up hurt and humiliated on the ground.
