"Marguerita Time" is a single released by the British rock band Status Quo in 1983. It was included on the album Back to Back.[1]

The single was also issued in a Christmas double pack which included "Caroline"/"Joanne".

The song was reprised, in 2014, for the band's thirty-first studio album Aquostic (Stripped Bare). It was featured in the ninety-minute launch performance of the album at London's Roundhouse on 22 October, the concert being recorded and broadcast live by BBC Radio 2 as part of their In Concert series.[2][3]

Dexy's Midnight Runners covered the song on the B-side of their single "This is What She's Like"; the recording was also included on some reissues of the band's Too-Rye-Ay album.
