Mama planned it all
Said it's pretty in the Fall
And the flowers would be
Rosies and daisies
And she prayed nobody saw
The weight that I put on
The bride shouldn't be
4 months and 3 weeks

Daddies pride and joy
Is marrying some boy
And he looked afraid
The preacher turned he page
And I was wearing beige

Nowhere baptist church
Wrinkles in his shirt
No ones 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
Then back home again

Daddies 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

    It's about how a young lady got pregnant before she was married and was then forced to get married to the guy who got her pregnant. The whole town knows that she didn't wait for marriage to remain abstinent. Therefore, she is wearing beige, instead of white, which symbolizes purity.
