Lyrics:
Verse 1
The modern wife leads a dreadful life,
That seems the modern fashion.
For wicked ways and cabarets,
She seems to have a passion.
I never shall be up to date,
That sort of thing I know I'd hate.
So...

Refrain 1
I want to be a good little wife
In the good old fashioned way.
I'll honor and obey,
>From my home I'll never stray.

Although the thing that's smart is
To be out all night at parties,
I'll be sitting with my knitting
In the good old fashioned way.

Verse 2
It's thought quite queer if they last a year,
These marriages that we know.
You've hardly cried, "Here comes the bride!"
Before she's off to Reno.
They'll have to change it, I suppose,
>From "Here she comes!" to "There she goes!"
But...

Refrain 2
I want to be a good little wife
In the good old fashioned way.
Forever and a day,
Till our two heads are bent and gray.

Through days serene and stormy
There will be but one man for me,
And we'll weather life together
In the good old fashioned way.
