Harper Valley P.T.A.
Jeannie C. Riley
I wanna tell you all a story 'bout a Harper Valley widowed wife Who had a teenage daughter who attended Harper Valley Jr. 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 oughta 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 miniskirt 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 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'll 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.
