"Magdalena" as written by and Charles Thompson....
I needed something to eat
I took a walk down the street
I came to 318
Saw my sweet Magdalene

Magdalena, you're the meanest, oh
Magdalena, you're the meanest, oh
Magdalena, sweet Magdalene

I went down deep in her hive
One year just turned into five
Night came and then it was gone
How did you get so strong

Magdalena, just between us, oh
You're the meanest, and the leanest, oh
Magdalena, how'd you get so strong

Magdalena, Magdalena, oh
Magdalena, Magdalena, oh
Magdalena

And then we started to drag
Me and my Maggie-mag-mag
I begged her please no no no
She said she got to go go go go go go

Magdalena, just between us, oh
You're the meanest, Magdalena, oh
Magdalena, you're the meanest, oh
Magdalena, Magdalena, oh
Magdalena, Magdalena

    My InterpretationI feel like this song is talking about a guy looking for casual sex, and finding a much more complicated woman underneath the seemingly 'easy' Magdalena.

    He notices, but ignores it until Magdalena outgrows him, eventually leaving him begging her not to go.

    It's a great song.
