Verse 1
A-B-C-D-E-G
I never learned to spell
At least not well.
Verse 2
1-2-3-4-5-6-7
I never learned to count
A great amount.
Verse 3
But my busy mind is burning
To use what learning I've got.
Verse 4
I won't waste any time,
I'll strike while the iron is hot.
Verse 5
If they asked me, I could write a book
About the way you walk and whisper and look.
Verse 6
I could write a preface on how we met
So the world would never forget.
Verse 7
And the simple secret of the plot
Is just to tell them that I love you a lot.
Verse 8
Then the world discovers as my book ends
How to make two lovers a friend.
Verse 9
Use to hate to go to school
I never cracked a book;
I played the hook.
Verse 10
Never answered any mail;
To write I used to think was wasting ink.
Verse 11
It was never my endeavor
To be too clever and smart.
Verse 12
Now I suddenly feel
A longing to write in my heart.
Verse 13
If they asked me, I could write a book
About the way you walk and whisper and look.
Verse 14
I could write a preface on how we met
So the world would never forget.
Verse 15
And the simple secret of the plot
Is just to tell them that I love you a lot.
Verse 16
Then the world discovers as my book ends
How to make two lovers a friend.
