Well, I'm a good ol' girl an' I would like to please every way I can.
I've loved you an' I've always let you have the upper hand.
How come you think you're so smart, an' I'm the weaker sex?

We've come a long way, baby.
All the way to Hollywood from Arkansas.
We've come a long way, baby.
Second class don't turn me on at all.

Times have changed and I'm demanding satisfaction too.

We've come a long way, baby.
All the way to Hollywood from Arkansas.
We've come a long way, baby.
Second class don't turn me on at all.

We've come a long way, baby.
All the way to Hollywood from Arkansas.
We've come a long way, baby.
Second class don't turn me on at all.
