If you knew a-Peggy Sue
Then you'd know why I feel blue
My Peggy, a-my Peggy Sue
Well I love you, girl, yes I love you, Peggy Sue

Peggy Sue, Peggy Sue
Oh, how my heart yearns for you
Oh Peggy, my Peggy Sue
Well I love you, girl, yes I love you, Peggy Sue

Peggy Sue, Peggy Sue
Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty Peggy Sue
Oh Peggy, a-my Peggy Sue
Well, I love you, girl, and I need you, Peggy Sue

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

Peggy Sue, Peggy Sue
Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty Peggy Sue
My Peggy, a-my Peggy Sue
Well, I love you, girl, and I want you, Peggy Sue
Well, I love you, girl, and I want you, Peggy Sue
(Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty Peggy Sue)

    General CommentThis isn't the Beach Boys. It's Buddy Holly.

    General CommentIn response to the above: They recorded a cover of it on their 1978 "MIU" album.

    Since the Beach Boys did the smart thing here and let Al Jardine sing lead and stuck very close to the late great Buddy Holly's brilliant original, this song is very very good, especially for the Beach Boys at this point in their career. It deservingly charted at #59, but I still recommend Holly's original from '57.
