The Lyrics

This is one of my favorite Andy Griffith Show episodes where what starts out as casual talk about politics at a picnic leads to Ellie May Walker's decision to run for first female town council representative. Andy belittles her and gets the men to fight against her petition to get her name on the ballot by having the men cut off their wive's credit lines at the stores. The women get the 100 signatures needed (thanks to Barney) and retaliate by not cooking, cleaning, and no (offscreen) sex of course. Ellie is about to give in and drop out when Opie repeats some sexist remarks from Andy. Andy realizes his mistake and then supports Ellie who wins a seat. A very good episode IMHO. Ellie was played by actress Elinor Donahue. I have used Ellie May here instead of Ellie Mae b/c most of the sites online list her that way; if incorrect, please let me know the source!
Oh, oh, oh-no
In trouble with Ellie

Oh, oh, oh-no
In trouble with Ellie

Ellie!
Ellie May
Ellie!
Ellie May
Ellie!
Ellie May
Ellie!
My date

Oh, Ellie May she is so pretty
We talked of politics so casually
Then she got this silly thought in her brain
To run for town council which was crazy

I brought her down, brought her down, down
Rumors around town, were spread around

[Chorus]
I’m just a Stupid Fool, ‘cause Ellie May’s my girl
Running for the town council- a lady!!!
I’m just a Stupid Fool, ‘cause Ellie May’s my girl
Running for the town council- a lady!!!

Oh, oh, oh-no
In trouble with Ellie

Oh, oh, oh-no
In trouble with Ellie

Ellie!
Ellie May
Ellie!
Ellie May
Ellie!
Ellie May
Ellie!
My date

I had treated her so cruelly
I didn’t even let her have her say
Led a revolt along with all the men
To take all the women’s credit away

I brought her down, brought her down, down
Rumors around town, were spread around

I’m just a Stupid Fool, ‘cause Ellie May’s my girl
Running for the town council- a lady!!!
I’m just a Stupid Fool, ‘cause Ellie May’s my girl
Running for the town council- a lady!!!

Oh, oh, oh-no
In trouble with Ellie

Oh, oh, oh-no
In trouble with Ellie

[Bridge]
Seems that I lacked common sense,
The women made us men tense
No cooking, of course no sex, changed our minds
But in the cultural sense
Mayberry made some progress
Ellie, leader in a dress,
Elected, it all worked out fine

I should support you,
But tradition’s pulling me away from you
Men on the town council,
Ellie, female, this is just so new
Just so new

I’m just a Stupid Fool, ‘cause Ellie May’s my girl
Running for the town council- a lady!!!
I’m just a Stupid Fool, ‘cause Ellie May’s my girl
Running for the town council- a lady!!!

Oh, oh, oh-no
In trouble with Ellie

Oh, oh, oh-no
In trouble with Ellie

Ellie!
Ellie May
Ellie!
Ellie May
Ellie!
Ellie May
Ellie!
My date

Another good job of capturing the gist of an Andy Griffith episode in a parody.

Thanks Porfle, but is it Ellie May or Mae? In that episode Barney was with Hilda Mae!!!

I don't know, all I remember her being called was Ellie. Barney was quite a ladies' man--even after he hooked up with Thelma Lou, he kept Juanita on the side.
