    Lyrics

    Well, the readin' and the writin' arithmetic
    Never did get through to me
    It ain't because I'm square or thick
    'Cause I learned my A, be, see

    But when I graduated from the grammar school
    And I moved one grade above
    I began to be a snook at books
    But I made straight A's in love

    Now the teacher would say to learn your algebra
    But I'd bring home see's and D's
    How could I make an A when there's a swingin' maid
    On the left and on the right and in the back and the front of me?

    Oh, my grades are low on my card, I know
    But they oughta give me one above
    If they'd give me a mark for learnin' in the dark
    I'd have straight A's in love

    Now in my senior year with graduation near
    I did my homework every night
    And when my momma said I oughta go to bed
    I turn out all the lights

    But my sweetie pie was waitin' right outside
    She'd be a coolin' like a dove
    Though I did my best, I failed semester test
    But I made straight A's in love

    Now the teacher would say to learn your algebra
    But I'd bring home see's and D's
    How could I make an A when there's a swingin' maid
    On the left and on the right and in the back and the front of me

    Oh, my grades are low on my card, I know
    But they oughta give me one above
    If they'd give me a mark for learnin' in the dark
    I'd have straight A's in love
