Today I married Peggy Sue.
It was a stupid thing to do.
In an old trunk, she found a dress
And that’s what started this whole mess.

The shoes she found were much too big,
As was her mother’s crazy wig.
She couldn’t walk; I carried her.
And then I guess I married her.

My dog Peaty was my best man
And her best girl, her cat named Fran.
She said we’d have a ceremony
And I’d pay lots of alimony.

My married life is not the same
‘Cause someone has to change his name.
So just because I said, “I do”,
She calls me Mr. Peggy Sue.
