A damaged soul rages against the horrible injustices of her life. She blames a 1980s symbol of whitebread pop.

Story behind the song
This song was motivated undoubtedly by guilt about tormenting this poor girl when I was in junior high. My brother Jack felt guilty too. Alec Walling just felt guilty just for knowing us. The band here is The Grizzley Souvenirs, featuring me, Jack on lead guitar, Tom Adler on banjo and Al Faaet on percussion.
Lyrics
MAGGOT RAGS (By Steve Terrell, Jack Clift & Alec Walling) Feelin' grimy, soiled and slimey Wish you'd had a Chance to try me Olivia Newton John wishes that she was me She don't know how far I've gone And all of the things I see All this glamor, panaramor Rusty nail and Silver hammer Olivia Newton John doesn't know how to scrounge The money's out in the street Or meeting them in the lounge I dropped my books and They fell in the sand 'midst the jeers of adolescents Olivia Newton John doesn't know how to swim Memories oh so bleak, Feelings that grow so grim "Maggot Rags" they call me "Maggot Rags" they call me Maggot, Maggot, Maggot, Maggot, Maggot, Maggot, Maggot, Maggot Rags ... Olivia Newton John .... Copyright 1981 Sidhe Gorm Music (written 1981)
