        When I was just a highschool girl
        my mother sat me down
        And gave me ...... advice
        I thought was very .....

        The ways that men are tricky
        that try to turn your hand

        So when the captain of the football team
        tried to kiss me goodnight, no-no, on a very first date
        I looked in his ..... big blue eyes
        shook my fingers and hands and face
        And forgot what mama said

        Because it's hard for a girl
        in a world full of men
        How to suppress that very
        natural young

        It's right to mind your mother
        and be proper

        But then it's hard for a girl
        in a world full of men
        It's hard for a girl
        in a world full of men

        Then I was after college
        ..........
        But I was there .... study
        the boys I would ignored

        I cap my nose and side my books
        ........ my head

        So one night while ......
        ....
        .... asked me to ride in his big new car
        I forgot what mama said

        Because it's hard for a girl
        in a world full of men
        How to suppress that very
        natural young

        It's right to mind your mother
        and be proper

        But then it's hard for a girl
        in a world full of men
        It's hard for a girl
        in a world full of men

        So with guitar I'm now a star
        known by everyone
        I'm a dedicated artist
        who has no time for fun

        My folk songs are the only things
        that ever fill my head

        So when one of those ridiculous
        rich, handsome rock 'n' roll saint
        Beetles ......  ask me to do the doo-wop
        I grab him by a shaggy hair
        And forgot what mama said

        Because it's hard for a girl
        in a world full of men
        How to suppress that very
        natural young

        It's right to mind your mother
        and be proper

        But then it's hard for a girl
        in a world full of men
        It's hard for a girl
        in a world full of men
        Hard for a girl
        in a world full of men
        Hard for a girl
        in a world full of men
        ....
