    "Teach Me Tonight" Lyrics

    Ella Fitzgerald feat. Count Basie

    Did you say that I've got a lot to learn?
    Well, don't think I'm trying not to learn
    Since this is the perfect spot to learn
    Teach me tonight

    Starting with the A-B-C of it
    Getting right down to the X-Y-Z of it
    Help me solve the mystery of it
    Teach me tonight

    The sky's a blackboard high above you
    And if a shooting star goes by

    I'll use that star to write, "I love you"
    A thousand times across the sky

    One thing isn't very clear, my love
    Teachers shouldn't stand so near, my love
    Graduation's almost here, my love
    You'd better teach me tonight

    I've played loves scenes in a flick or two
    And I've also met a chick or two
    But I still can learn a trick or two
    Hey, teach me tonight

    I who thought I knew the score of it
    Kind of think I should know much more of it
    Off the wall, the bed, the floor of it
    Hey, teach me tonight

    The midnight hours come slowly creeping
    When there's no one there but you
    There must be more to life than sleeping
    Single in a bed for two

    What I need most is post graduate
    What I feel is hard to articulate
    If you want me to matriculate
    You'd better teach me tonight

    What do you get for lessons?
    Teach me, come on and teach me
    Teach me tonight
