Margaret came to me was all he said
Before she knew my name she was in my bed
She was only sweet sixteen
20,000 days younger than me

"marry me" she said I don't reply
"daddy said you'd better, or you'll die"
She wants a house and fifteen kids I guess
She does my work
And I can't find a state we're legal in

Margaret (4x)
Shh...

Margaret feels the world beneath her feet
Shaking like a leaf falls from the tree
She don't care he's ten years older than me
As long as they're together happily
She says stay away

"marry me" she said I don't reply
"daddy said you'd better, or you'll die"
She wants a house and fifteen kids I guess
She does my work
And I can't find a state we're legal in

Margaret(4x)

She was only sweet 16...
