Harper Valley PTA
by Loretta Lynn



I want to tell you all a story about a Harper Valley widowed wife,
Who had a teenage daughter that attended Harper Valley Jr High.
Well that daughter came home one afternoon and did'nt even stop to play.
and she said"I got a note here from the Harper Valley PTA",

Well the note says,Mrs.Johnson your wearing your dresses way to high,
It's been reported you've been drinking and running around with men and going wild.
Now we don't believe you should be bringing up your little girl this way.
and it was signed by the secretary of the harper valley PTA.

Well it happened that the PTA was gonna meet that very afternoon,
and boy were they surprised when Mrs.Johnson wore her mini skirt into the room,
and as she walked up to the blackboardi can still record the words she had to say,
she said i'd like to address this meeting of the harper valley PTA.

Now there's Bobby Taylor sittin there and 7 times he's asked me for a date,and
Mrs.Taylor seems to use alot a ice when he's away.
and Mr.Baker could you tell us why your secretary had to leave this town?
and shoul'nt Widow Jones be told to keep her window shades all pulled completley down?

Now Mr.Harper could'nt be here cause he stayed to long at jellys bar again,
and if you smelled Shirley Thompson breath you'll find she's had a little nip of gin,
and then you have the nerve to tell me as a mother you think that i ain't fit.
Well this is just a little peyton place and your all Harper Valley Hypocrits.

Now i would'nt put you on because it really happened just this way...
The day my mama socked it to the harper valley PTA That day my mama socked it to em the harper valley PTA.
