    Lyrics

    A-B-C-D-E-G
    I never learned to spell
    At least not well.

    1-2-3-4-5-6-7
    I never learned to count
    A great amount.

    But my busy mind is burning
    To use what learning I've got.

    I won't waste any time,
    I'll strike while the iron is hot.

    If they asked me, I could write a book
    About the way you walk and whisper and look.

    I could write a preface on how we met
    So the world would never forget.

    And the simple secret of the plot
    Is just to tell them that I love you a lot.

    Then the world discovers as my book ends
    How to make two lovers a friend.

    Use to hate to go to school
    I never cracked a book;
    I played the hook.

    Never answered any mail;
    To write I used to think was wasting ink.

    It was never my endeavor
    To be too clever and smart.

    Now I suddenly feel
    A longing to write in my heart.

    If they asked me, I could write a book
    About the way you walk and whisper and look.

    I could write a preface on how we met
    So the world would never forget.

    And the simple secret of the plot
    Is just to tell them that I love you a lot.

    Then the world discovers as my book ends
    How to make two lovers a friend.
