Peggy Got Engaged – Janie Grant

Peggy got engaged
Have you heard the news?
Peggy got engaged
Now I’ve got the Blues
Peggy got engaged to the boy I love.

The hook is okay; fairly dreamy. But, the song construction is rather bizarre and aimless. Towards the end of the song, it sounds like it’s going to modulate a fifth, but doesn’t. It just goes off into a weird pre-ending with a really creepy organ solo. The lyrics use the correct subjunctive mood, so I’ll give them that.
