YOU’RE AN EDUCATION

Must I memorise a book
To be considered wise
When I can look into your eyes

Literature is such a bore
And mathematics too
I’d much prefer to learn about you….

You’re the only kind of knowledge
They don’t teach at any college
You’re an education in yourself

There are poems and romances
In the glamour of your glances
You’re an education in yourself

Of all the famous dates in hist’ry
I recall but a few
The fourth of July
And my dates with you

You’ve a kiss that’s scientific
Tho’ it’s tender, it’s terrific
You’re an education in yourself

You’re the kind of mental training
I could take without complaining
You’re an education in yourself

Intricate as economics
Simple as the Sunday comics
You’re an education in yourself

And there are geometric figures
In your beautiful curves
They’re good on the eyes
But bad on the nerves

You are my encycloped’yuh
Let me take you home and read yuh
You’re an education in yourself
