“Ladies Aid Society” Lyrics

In every little town and village too
Somewhere in the neighborhood
You find a little band of ladies who
Can’t stop doing good
Good for the pigeons in the park
Good for their weekly tea
Good for the national bank
Where they keep their treasury

We’re the ladies aid society
And we’re really a great bunch of girls
We’re the ladies aid society
And soon we’ll take over the world

Here they come, marching down the street
With their picket signs in hand
With their blue and white pleated uniforms
And their all-girl five-piece band
Down with long-haired singing groups
Down with the mayor too
And if you’re under sixty-five
They’re down on you

We’re the ladies aid society
And we just want to sell you the truth
We’re the ladies aid society
And it’s time we clamp down on the youth

We’re the ladies aid society
And we’re really a great bunch of girls
We’re the ladies aid society
And soon we’ll take over the world

We’re the ladies aid society
And we just want to sell you the truth
We’re the ladies aid society
And it’s time we clamp down on the youth
