Harper Valley PTA lyrics

I wanna tell you all

a story 'bout 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 P.T.A.

Well, the note said

Mrs. Johnson, you're wearin'

your dresses way too high

It's reported

you've been drinkin' and

a-runnin' 'round with men

and goin' wild

And we don't believe

you ought to be a-bringin'

up your little girl this way

And it was signed

by the secretary

Harper Valley P.T.A.

Well, it happened

that the P.T.A. 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 can still recall the

words she had to say

She said I'd like to

address this meeting of

the Harper Valley P.T.A.

Well, there's Bobby Taylor

sittin' there and seven times

he's asked me for a date

And Mrs. Taylor sure seems

to use a lotta 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 peyton 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 mama

socked it to

the Harper Valley P.T.A.

the day my mama

socked it to

the Harper Valley P.T.A....
