Elton John - "Teacher I Need You Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

I was sitting in the classroom

Trying to look intelligent
In case the teacher looked at me

She was long and she was lean

She's a middle-aged dream

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

And she helps to keep the classroom sane

Oh teacher I need you
Like a little child

You got something in you
To drive a schoolboy wild
In the lovesick blues

You give me education

Help me get straight come out and say

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
