Mama said, "Son, you'd better get yourself a girl, I said, "Yes Ma'am, Yes Ma'am!"
"She'd better be rich and pretty, son." I said, "Yes Ma'am, Yes Ma'am!"
And not one or the other but both must be
For a pretty girl 'aint nothing if her pockets are free
Momma said, "Son, you'd better get yourself a girl, I said, "Yes Ma'am, Yes Ma'am!"

So I went to school and started lookin
For a girl who would get my mind a-cookin
But none fit the mold that momma would find a catch
But Miss Laura Lee she was tall and handsome
Boy, she sure did strike my fancy
She's as pretty as the movies and rich as a million pence
She must me, to be teaching us sixth grade science.

She said, "Son, you'd better do all your homework." I said, "Yes Ma'am, Yes Ma'am!"
"And it better all be done, not half and half, I said, "Yes Ma'am, Yes Ma'am!"
Just as long as when the schoolday's done
You'll come home with me and teach me right from wrong
Mamma said, "Son, you'd better get yourself a girl." I said, "Yes Ma'am, Yes Ma'am!"

Can you believe it? I took home my sixth grade science teacher!

"Good mornin' momma! This here's Miss Lee, she's my science teacher, as pretty as can be
She spent the night and helped me with my homework, would you like some eggs with your pancake syrup?
What do you think momma, can she move in today?"

Well, four strips of bacon, eggs, and toast
Two eyes looking at me like they've seen a ghost
Momma 'aint sayin' nothing, she's on the floor
Must have been those eggs du jour
I said, "Momma, I've finally got myself a girl!"
Yes ma'am, Yes ma'am.
