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
