    I wanna tell you all a story
    About a Harper Valley widowed wife
    Who had a teenage daughter
    That attended Harper Valley Junior High
    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 PTA."

    Well, the note said: Mrs. Johnson
    You're wearing your dresses way too high
    And it's been rumored you've been drinking
    And running around with men and going wild
    And we really don't think you should
    Be bringing up your little girl this way
    And it was signed the secretary
    Of the Harper Valley PTA.

    Well, it happened that PTA
    Was gonna meet that very afternoon
    And they were all suprised when Mrs. Johnson
    Wore her mini-skirt into the room
    And when she walked up to the blackboard,
    I still recall the words she had to say
    She said, "I'd like to address this meeting
    Of the Harper Valley PTA."

    "Well, there's Bobby Taylor sitting there
    And seven times he's asked me for a date
    And Mrs. Taylor sure seems to use
    A lot of ice when he's away
    And Mr. Baker can you tell us
    Why your secretary had to leave this town
    And can Winter Jones be told
    To leave her window shades
    All perfectly layed down.
    Well Mr. Harper couldn't be here
    'Cause he stayed too late at Kelly's Bar again
    And if you smell Shirly Thompson's breath
    You'll find she's had a little nip of gin.
    And still you see the need to tell me
    That as a mother I'm not fit.
    Well, this is just a little hating place
    For all you Harper Valley hipocrites."

    No, I wouldn't put you on
    Because it didn't really happen just that way
    The day my momma socked it to
    The Harper Valley PTA.

    The day my momma socked it to
    The Harper Valley PTA...
