Harper Valley PTA
I want to tell you all a story about a Harper valley widowed wife Who had a teenage daughter who attended Harper valley junior high Well, her daughter came home one afternoon and didn't even stop to play And she said, 'mom I got a note here from the Harper valley PTA' Well the note said: Mrs.Johnson you're wearing your dresses way too high And it's reported you've been drinking and runnin' around with men and going wild And we do't believe you ought to be a bringing up your little girl this way And it was signed by the secretary Harper valley PTA Well it happened that the PTA was gonna meet that very afternoon And they were sure surprised when Mrs. Johnson wore her mini-skirt into the room And as she walked up to the blackboard, I still can recall the words she had to say She said, 'I'd like to address this meeting of the Harper valley PTA' 'well there's Bobby Taylor sitting there and seven times he's asked me for a date And Mrs. Taylor sure seems to use a lot of ice whenever he's away And Mr. Baker can you tell us why your secretary had to leave this town And shouldn't widow Jones be told to keep her window shades all pulled completely down Well Mr. Harper couldn't be here 'cause he stayed too long at Kelly's Bar again And if you smell Shirley Thompson's breath you'll find she's had a little nip of gin And then you have the nerve to tell me you think that as a mother I'm not fit Well this is just a little hatin' place and you're all Harper valley hypocrites No I wouldn't put you on because it really did, it happened just this way The day my momma socked it to the Harper valley PTA The day my momma socked it to the Harper valley PTA
