Ladies I'd like to talk to you for just about two minutes
Now you can turn me off if you want to but what I've got
To say is for your benefit and no one else. Now we heard what
Big Moe had to say to the brothers but I'm goin' to tell you
Straight up that fellas these days ain't no good

Stool pigeon, stool pigeon

What you mean stool pigeon. You see that's what I mean
Listen stick around girls
Don't be no clown, and please pick up on what I put down

If he drives you to the beach
And he starts to reach
Look out, sister look out

If he says you look fetchin'
And wants to go show you his etchin's
Don't go up there, you better not go up there

And if he says you know you look good in a sweater
Go home and write him a leteer, hmm, hmmm
You know what I mean

And look here, if he buys you crocks of champagne
Take a train and go to Maine
Get outta town before it's too late

If he says "Darlin' you look just like my mother"
Go home and get your big brother
And have him snapped up

Now what you gigglin' for?
Look here this ain't funny
Hee hee hee the devil
You better pay attention to me now listen up
Don't listen to nobody but me now

Don't listen to Big Moe, don't listen to Little Moe
Don't listen to no no, or No Moe whatever that childs
Name is over near Nomax don't listen to eat Moe
Don't listen to nobody but me all right

If something happen to you this summer
You say I didn't tell you "all right"
Now this is some knowledge I use myself
I got this jive straight from the shelf
And it's known to be successful to a marked degree
And baby I'm givin' it to you for free, all right

Now if you wanna go for a ride in the car
Don't stay too long and don't go too far
And if he says "darlin', darlin', you know I feel so lucky"
Go tell that man to catch a train to Kentucky

And if he says you know, ooh baby baby
You know you look groovy
I think I'm gonna put you in a movie
Hey! he ain't no talent scout
He don't know what it's all about
And if he laughs at all your jokes
Says your brand is all he smokes
He drinks nothing but cokes
He wants to meet your folks
Don't believe him baby, it's a hoax, all right
Tell him to get lost
'Cause he ain't nothing but a moose

And if he says "Hey sugar, I'm on the square"
Go home and leave him right there, leave him right there
And if he says "Hello baby, you look great
I'm gonna take you on a date"
He ain't nothing but a fake
Go tell him to go jump in the lake

What you sitting up there gigglin' for?
You know you'd be surprised at what them men
Are framin' up on doin' this summer
And if somethin' happened to you
You'd say I didn't tell you
So listen to what I'm tellin' you
Look at what I'm puttin' down all right?

Here it is
Now if he buys you clothes
And nylon hose
And takes you round the nation
On a two week vacation
Buys you diamond rings, mink coats and everything
And he's the mellow creature who wants
To see the preacher
Well, you don't have to look out baby
Take him home to momma

Look out

Now listen girls, don't tease him just squeeze him
Because that's your main squeezy easy

Look out sister, you better look out
Look out
