I may be old fashioned So what if I am I'm not any different To any other man I'm not one of those Who look for blood from a stone But I believe A woman's place is in the home.
Now I'm not one to kid you You know it's not my style I wouldn't want to hurt you Not even for a while I'm all for a woman Who can make it on her own But I believe A woman's place is in the home. Ooh baby I believe, I do A woman's place is in the home.
Wonder what would have happened Had a woman flattened Rocky Marciano's nose Would there have been A change of views Would women no longer be used The way they seem To think they're being
I know what you're thinking And you've every right to moan But I believe, yes indeed, I do, A woman's place is in the home. Ooh baby I believe, I do A woman's place is in the home

"Sloop John B" is a traditional West Indian folk song, and it was a huge hit for The Beach Boys in 1966. They tweaked the lyric, "This is the worst trip since I've been born" to "...I've ever been on" as a wink to acid culture.
