with (Pearl Bailey) (Oh it makes you so nervous, I got a blank, now what's with you Frank') Well, dig me, I started to school just like all kids do. Yeah, like I said that knowledge can mess up your life at times. (You mean, you were young once') I was a Mickey Rooney of my day, learned my lessons and got along fine. (So should you clamor.) And then as time went on, I learned a lot of other things, (You clever boy!) Uh huh, and I really had myself some jolly time. (I can imagine as much.) I had my boots on and I had them laced up tight. I never played any favorites, 'cause I was much too smart. (You think you're too smart. Wait till you get further down.) (You talk like that in your era') Wrote a book, Pearl, but then I made a mistake. Uh huh, I should have known from the start. (Most men do.) (Most men don't.) (This is not this day's material') It's bad, 'cause it started with a gal. Aha, let me tell you what happened last night. (Always does.) And her name, it was Sal. Oh she was cute. She was as fine as a bird on the wing. (Sal, corny.) But uh, a little learnin' is a dangerous thing. (But you are much too bright to fall in love the first night.) (Yeah, you always could think up,) (I told you that on the other side of the record.) And then we danced for a time or two, till she said she was blue. (Uh, huh, there it is.) And right away, I was doing the thing... (Just rushing through life.) 'Cause I was hip to the fact that I could always jump back (Yes it is.) (Do a thing.) But a little learnin' is a dangerous thing. She made with sweet talk. (Uh hmmm.) That so hard-to-beat talk. What's that' (Know what, Frank') You've been eavesdropping. (Yes, I have.) (I know she even called you darling, lover man!) That really sent me, coincidentally, I should have known enough then to scram. (No man is ever that clever -- that rhymes!) Now I guess you know it all, least that's all I recall. (That's all you'll ever recall.) Except the part about the man with a ring. (Oh you down.) (Oh you're going again.) In case it's news to you, the smartest I said I'd do. (Oh, pure treachery, treachery!) :A little learning is a dangerous, is a dangerous thing. Stop, stop!
