Beige - Pistol Annies

Mama planned it all
said it's pretty in the fall
and the flowers would be
roses and daisies

and she prayed nobody saw
the weight that I put on
the bride shouldn't be
4 months and 3 weeks

Daddy's pride and joy
is marrying some boy
and he looked afraid
the preacher turned the page
and I was wearing beige

Nowhere Baptist church
wrinkles in his shirt
no one's having a ball
at the reception hall

and we didn't take no honeymoon
with what we've got ourselves into
a quick "I do"
and then back home again

Daddy's pride and joy
was marrying some boy
now everyone in this place
knows I didn't wait
cause I was wearing beige
I was wearing beige
