Song Lyric Sunday: ‘S’ girls – ‘Peggy Sue’

The challenge this week is to post a song containing a girl’s name beginning with ‘S’. There are plenty of possibilities, for sure. The first one that came to my mind was Leonard Cohen’s ‘Suzanne’, but I thought I’d look elsewhere on this occasion.

Way back in simpler times, there was the devil’s music – and this:

If you knew Peggy Sue
Then you’d know why I feel blue
Without Peggy, my Peggy Sue
Oh well, I love you, gal
Yes, I love you Peggy Sue

Peggy Sue, Peggy Sue
Oh, how my heart yearns for you
Oh, Peggy, my Peggy Sue
Oh well, I love you, gal
Yes, I love you Peggy Sue

Peggy Sue, Peggy Sue
Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty, Peggy Sue
Oh, Peggy, my Peggy Sue
Oh well, I love you, gal
And I need you, Peggy Sue

I love you, Peggy Sue
With a love so rare and true
Oh, Peggy, my Peggy Sue
Well, I love you, gal
And I want you, Peggy Sue

Peggy Sue, Peggy Sue,
Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty, Peggy Sue
Oh, Peggy, my Peggy Sue
Oh well, I love you, gal
Yes, I need you, Peggy Sue

I love you, Peggy Sue
With a love so rare and true
Oh Peggy, my Peggy Sue
Oh well, I love you, gal
And I want you, Peggy Sue

Oh well, I love you gal
And I want you Peggy Sue

Written by Buddy Holly, Jerry Allison and Norman Petty
