"Peggy Sue" as written by Scott Raynor, Tom De Longe and Mark Hoppus....
I know what it's like to be alone sitting in your room
Listening to all the doubts that your parents have to say to you

And as your head gets all cluttered inside
Try to stay awake
Everything they say are lies
That's all the shit that you ever have to take

So hold in all your aggressions
Because your grinding your teeth on down to
The bottom of your chin

It's not easy or so damn pleasing
To not laugh at everything they say as
They tell you what to be you're not alone

I know what it's like to be denied at everything you do
It's not the same reason why that
Makes you change the things that you once knew

As your head gets all cluttered inside
Give more than you take
Everything they say are lies
That's all the shit that you ever have to take

So hold in all your aggressions
Because your grinding your teeth on down to
The bottom of your chin

It's not easy or so damn pleasing
To not laugh at everything they say as
They tell you what to be you're not alone

You say you want to take off your shoes and
Walk barefoot down the street
Just to be the things that you can be
Just live for one more week, go!

You say you want to take off your shoes just to
Walk barefoot down the street
Just to be the things that you can be
Just live for one more week

So hold in all your aggressions
Because your grinding your teeth on down to
The bottom of your chin

It's not easy or so damn pleasing
To not laugh at everything they say as
They tell you what to be you're not alone

    General Commenttom said that this song is about sitting in your girlfriend's room and listening her parents tell her how much they hate you, and then just laughing it off.

    General CommentI think that Blinks old stuff is actually better than the new cd. Granted, Travis is much more awesome, but Cheshire Cat is one of their best cds.

    General Commenti think this song is about growing up and rebelling against your parents because they just don't understand what its like to be a kid.

    General CommentI dont really care what this song means (oh I am sooo bad) but this song is MY theme song. The first time I heard it, I was like no way, but this song explains exactly how I feel. But no matter what, and even if I dont rebel, even if I do as my mother (also known as satan) says, I always don't do enough, or I don't do good enough. and I HATE THE LECTURES!!!

    General CommentThis is absolutely my fave Blink song it COMPLETELY describes wut i feel like sumtimes when all i hear is complaints and lectures from my parents and i just wanna get away. And just the lines "I know what it's like.." and "You're not alone" completely comfort me. i acctually walked barefoot down the street one time while i was walkin my neighbors dog. i literally just took my shoes off and left them on the sidewalk and these two old ppl ended up walkin by them and just stared at them it was one of the most comfortable moments of my life cuz i just felt free and happy cuz i didn't give a crap wut anyone thought bout the catholic school girl walkin round the neighborhood in barefeet.

    General CommentThis is one of my favorites off Cheshire Cat, I'm surprised so few people have commented. It has great music, and the lyrics are so true.

    General CommentPeggy sue is one of their best, but I thought I heard somewhere this song was a cover from a classical song, I don't know it this is right.

    General Commentfirst peggy sue is a kick ass song. i remember this girl we had a thing goin and she had a really fucked up family and all, but anyways. things never really worked out bewteen us, but how this song is connected to her. well she never really figured out what she wanted to do when she wanted to grow up. and she's a senior this year, and last time i talked to her she said she goin to join the army. showing how parents fuck up their childern.

    but the song talks bout tom comforting one of his friends when the friends parent tell how they are fuckin up all the time and such. pretty simple meaning actually.
