Loretta Lynn (née Webb; born on April 14, 1932) is an American country-music singer-songwriter and author. Born in Butcher Hollow, near Paintsville, Kentucky, USA, to a coal-miner father. At the age of 14 she married, and soon she became pregnant. She moved to Washington state with her husband, Oliver Vanetta Lynn, Jr. (1926–1996), nicknamed "Doo".

 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

You wined me and dined me 
When I was your girl 
Promised if I'd be your wife 
You'd show me the world 
But all I've seen of this old world 
Is a bed and a doctor bill 
I'm tearin' down your brooder house 
'Cause now I've got the pill 
All these years I've stayed at home 
While you had all your fun 
And every year that's gone by 
Another babys come 
There's a gonna be some changes made 
Right here on nursery hill 
You've set this chicken your last time 
'Cause now I've got the pill 

This old maternity dress I've got 
Is goin' in the garbage 
The clothes I'm wearin' from now on 
Won't take up so much yardage 
Miniskirts, hot pants and a few little fancy frills 
Yeah I'm makin' up for all those years 
Since I've got the pill 

I'm tired of all your crowin'
How you and your hens play 
While holdin' a couple in my arms 
Another's on the way 
This chicken's done tore up her nest 
And I'm ready to make a deal 
And ya can't afford to turn it down 
'Cause you know I've got the pill 

This incubator is overused 
Because you've kept it filled 
The feelin' good comes easy now 
Since I've got the pill 
It's gettin' dark it's roostin' time 
Tonight's too good to be real 
Oh but daddy don't you worry none 
'Cause mama's got the pill 
Oh daddy don't you worry none 
'Cause mama's got the pill
