Mary-Ann and Wanda were the best of friends
All through their high school days
Both members of the 4H Club
Both active in the F.F.A.

After graduation Mary-Ann went out
Lookin' for a bright new world
Wanda looked all around this town
And all she found was Earl

Well, it wasn't two weeks after she got married
That Wanda started gettin abused
She put on dark glasses, long sleeve blouses
And make-up to cover a bruise

Well, she finally got the nerve to file for divorce
She let the law take it from there
But Earl walked right through that restraining order
And put her in intensive care

Right away Mary-Ann flew in from Atlanta
On a red eye midnight flight
She held Wandas hand as they worked out a plan
And it didn't take em long to decide

That Earl had to die
Goodbye, Earl, those black eyed peas
They tasted alright to me Earl, youre feelin weak
Why dont you lay down and sleep, Earl
Aint it dark, wrapped up in that tarp, Earl

The cops came by to bring Earl in
They searched the house high and low
Then they tipped their hats and said, "Thank you, ladies
If you hear from him let us know

Well, the weeks went by and
Spring turned to summer and summer faded into fall
And it turns out he was a missing person
Who nobody missed at all

So the girls bought some land and a roadside stand
Out on Highway 109
They sell Tennessee ham and strawberry jam
And they don't lose any sleep at night

Cause Earl had to die
Goodbye, Earl, we need a break
Lets go out to the lake, Earl, well pack a lunch
And stuff you in the trunk Earl, well, is that alright?
Good, lets go for a ride, Earl, hey

Well, hey, hey, hey
Oh, hey, hey, hey
Well, hey, hey, hey
