Music and Lyrics by: Bill Dake 1984 ASCAP

It don't take a PHD
If you want to talk to me
The words I'd like to hear you say
You won't learn in a class on the ruins of Pompeii
It don't take sheepskin
to do what I'm thinkin'
It don't take a PHD

It won't need a Cuisinart
To get this romance to start
It won't take a microwave
To heat up that dish you'd been plannin' to save
'Cause girl if you're lookin'
For my kind of cookin'
You won't need a Cuisinart

It won't take a PHD
Or some MFP
Or a CPA from the NBA
Drive a fancy car
Be a movie star
Own some new machine
That can cook and clean
It don't take a sheepskin
To do what I'm thinkin'
It don't take a PHD

To talk to me
Can't you see?
It don't take a PHD

You've got fine credentials
The right essentials

It don't take a PHD
