EDDIE COCHRAN lyrics - Pink Peg Slacks

EDDIE COCHRAN
"Pink Peg Slacks"

I went down town last night, gonna dig a show
When I passed a display window of a big department store
Well, I looked inside this window
Man, all filled up with racks

And down there near the bottom was a crazy pair of slacks
I gotta have 'em, yeah, well, I need 'em for this cat
Well, well, yeah, how can I go cattin'
Without crazy pink peg slacks?

Well, I walked up to a salesman, I said mister I'm flat broke
But I gotta have them pink slacks, he said, "Man, is this a joke?"
Well, I asked him how much money
He said, "Add up four and eight"

He said, "Man, them pants is crazy", them's pink, rayon acetate
I gotta have 'em, yeah, well, I need 'em for this cat
Well-yeah how can I go cattin'
Without crazy pink peg slacks

Well, I went to see my baby, asked her for some dough
Said well you know I love you honey
What you need this money for? Well, I told her about them peggers
I found across down town

Got a sawbuck from her daddy, yeah, and I turned my Ford around
I gotta have 'em, yeah, well, I need 'em for this cat
Well, yeah, how can I go cattin'
Without crazy pink peg slacks

I saved my Ford into a stop, rushed into the store
I said, "Man, I got a sawbuck" he said, "You need two bucks more"
I said, "Man, can't I charge it?"

He said, "Man, we don't get these things for free"
I said, "Mister, you just don't realize
What these pink peggers mean to me"
