Jean Shepard – Two Whoops And A Holler lyrics

How come a man can fight and cuss and smoke and drink and chew
Step out on their wives and do the things they shouldn't do
But it's all right in the public's eye they say he's just a man
But if a woman does one little thing she's not worth a
Two whoops and a holler she's lower than a hound
If she drinks or smokes or tells a joke she's a lowest thing in town
A woman has to dress the kids and send them off to school
And do her best in every way to live the golden rule
The responsibility she has is much more than a man
But if she does one little thing she's not worth a
Two woops and a holler...
[ steel ]
If all the gals would stick by me we'd change the world around
We'd make the men walk on their knees and sleep out on the ground
What I'm really tryin' to say and I know you'll understand
The women ought to rule the world cause the men ain't worth a
Two woops and a holler they're lower than a hound
I hope they croak it ain't no joke they're the lowest thing in town
They're the lowest thing in town
