Yeah, Peggy Sue—
that’ll be the day—
when a guy wearing
a suit and a thin tie comes
down the line and thinks he
can be a rock star. Or maybe
he doesn’t even think that at all.
Listen to me, Peggy Sue—
maybe baby, he just knows
he has a way of saying things
in a new, catchy, hand-clapping
kind of way that’ll get folks up
on their feet, dancing and singing
those words of love along with him.
Maybe it’s just so easy for him
somehow – like falling in love
when you’re 20. It’s as if the lyrics
are just raining in his heart, every day.
What do I know. I’m just wishing
the music of a guy like that
lasts a long long time and that
his spirit does not fade away.
