Innocent Times

My memory flashes back
to innocent times long since gone
those hot nights parked at lovers lane
wolfman jack playing my favorite songs
it seems like yesterday in my 57 chevy
that Peggy Sue was by my side
i was hoping to get to second base
she just wanted to go for a ride
i remember my palms starting to sweat
and the windows getting a bit steamy
i told her Buddy Holly wrote a song about you
but she didn't believe me
so i pulled Peggy Sue closer
and we started kissing once again
but time was of the essence
because her dad said to be home by ten.

She smiled sweetly
gently placed her hands upon my face
looked at me and said, i was a swell guy
but this is not the time or the place
so i gave her a peck on the cheek
and told her not to worry
we can take things nice and slow
i am not in any hurry
so i drove her home, and kissed her goodnight
but now what was i supposed to do
that's when i drove to the nearest payphone
dropped in a dime 
and called up runaround Sue!

    Oh, Kurt, how witty! I guess Runaround Sue rose to the call when Peggy Sue needed to get home. My father had a Bellair and I bet my big brother enjoyed nights like the one you describe here. Awesome memories! Congratulations, Carolyn

    You took two old tunes and made an excellent poem. One never know where inspiration will come from. Took me on a walk down memory lane. Excellent write.
