Teacher I Need You

F  Eb/F  Bb/F  F

I was sitting in the classroom
Trying to look intelligent
   F                          C  F C F C F C
In case the teacher looked at me
        Am               Dm
She was long and she was lean
        Bb  F        Gm
She's a middle-aged dream
         F              Bb      F     Gm  C
And that lady means the whole world to me

It's a natural achievement
Conquering my homework
With her image pounding in my brain
She's an inspiration
For my graduation
             F            Bb   C    F
And she helps to keep the classroom sane

           Dm C    Bb  Dm            C
Oh teacher I  need you like a little child
Am                Dm        Bb                 C
You got something in you to drive a school boy wild
           Dm C Bb            Dm       C
You give me education in the love sick blues
Am                   Dm
Help me get straight come out and say
Bb6         Bb           Csus4 C                F  
Teacher I, teacher I, teacher I, Teacher I need you

I have to write a letter
Tell about my feelings
Just to let her know the scene
Focus my attention
On some further education
In connection with the birdies and the bees

So I'm sitting in the classroom
I'm looking like a zombie
I'm waiting for the bell to ring
I've got John Wayne stances
I've got Erroll Flynn advances
And it doesn't mean a doggone thing
