line1: I wanna tell you all a story about a Harper valley widowed wife
line2: who had a teenage daughter who attended Harper valley junior high
line3: well, her daughter came home one afternoon and didn't even stop to play
line4: and she said, "mamaI got a note here from the Harper valley PTA"
line5: well the note said: Mrs.Johnson you're wearing your dresses way too high
line6: and it's reported you've been drinking and runnin' around with men and going wild
line7: and we don't believe you oughta be abringin'up your little girl this way
line8: and it was signed by the secretary Harper valley PTA

line9: well it happened that the PTA was gonna meet that very afternoon
line10: and they were sure surprised when Mrs. Johnson wore her mini-skirt into the room
line11: and as she walked up to the blackboard, i still can recall the words she had to say
line12: she said, "I'd like to address this meeting of the Harper valley PTA"

line13: "well there's Bobby Taylor sitting there and seven times he's asked me for a date
line14: and Mrs. Taylor sure seems to use a lot of ice whenever he's away
line15: and Mr. Baker can you tell us why your secretary had to leave this town
line16: and shouldn't widow Jones be told to keep her window shades all pulled completely down
line17: well Mr. Harper couldn't be here 'cause he stayed too long at Kelly's Bar again
line18: and if you smell Shirley Thompson's breath you'll find she's had a little nip of gin
line19: and then you have the nerve to tell me you think that as a mother I'm not fit
line20: well this is just a little hatin' place and you're all Harper valley hypocrites

line21: no I wouldn't put you on because it really did, it happened just this way
line22: the day my mama socked it to the Harper valley PTA
line23: the day my mama socked it to the Harper valley PTA
