I want to 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 She said Mom I got a note here from the Harper Valley P.T.A. The note said Misses Johnson, you're wearing your dresses way too high It's reported you've been drinking and a runnin' round with men and going wild And we don't believe you ought to be a bringing up your little girl this way 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 They were sure surprised when Misses Johnson wore her miniskirt into the room And as 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 P.T.A. Well there's Bobby Taylor, sitting there and seven times he's asked me for a date Misses Taylor sure seems to use a lot of ice whenever he's away And Mister 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 Mister Harper couldn't be here 'cause he stayed to long at Kelly's Bar again And if you smell Shirley Tompson's breath you'll find she's had a little nip of gin 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 happend 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.
