Well, I couldn't help but overhear you talkin' to Mary Lou
And when she shot you down I knew that something was wrong with you
You're leaving Mississippi and your fast talking just won't go
If you wanna win her love you gotta take it nice and slow.

You gotta say yes ma'am, no ma'am, treat her like a lady
And open up the door for her take a little time
Well, get to know her better before you can try to hold her near
Be polite, ask her just right, if you want to get lucky on a Saturday night
'Cause that's the thing to do, around here.

--- Instrumental ---

Now I hate to tell you buddy but you're going about this all wrong
Go trade your suit to jeans and boots and put an old Stettson on
Give a little wink and a smile when you tip your hat
And you're only a few steps away from a girl like that.

You gotta say yes ma'am, no ma'am, treat her like a lady
And open up the door for her take a little time
Well, get to know her better before you can try to hold her near
Be polite, ask her just right, if you want to get lucky on a Saturday night
'Cause that's the thing to do, around here.

--- Instrumental ---

Now if I was up in New York city
I hope you do the same for me
So listen up friend I'll tell you again
You're down here where we say.

Yes ma'am, no ma'am, treat her like a lady
And open up the door for her take a little time
Well, get to know her better before you can try to hold her near
Be polite, ask her just right, if you want to get lucky on a Saturday night
'Cause that's the thing to do, around here...

--- Instrumental to fade ---
