Beige Lyrics

by 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
