Back home our girls are models of good behavior
You're taught you have to save your charms from the men.
In school, our girls are taught how to use discretion.
Each day we have a session from nine to ten.
We're taught the why and wherefore,
How and when-

When you talk
Don't talk, just sight!
Get coy! Get shy!
That's how to win friends and influence people

When you dance 
Forget your feet!
Get close! Get sweet!
That's how to win friends and influence people

Babes begin with
Yah! Yah! Yah!
Big girls win with
Yah! Yah! Yah!

But when you love
And find you're caught
You'll give no thought
To  how to win friends and influence people
Yah! Yah! Yah!
