The Art Teacher

Text písně The Art Teacher

There I was in uniform
Looking at the art teacher.
I was just a girl then;
Never have I loved since then.


He was not that much older than I was
He had taken our class to the Metropolitan Museum
He asked us what our favorite work of art was,
But never could I tell it was him.
Oh, I wish I could tell him --
Oh, I wish I could have told him.


I looked at the Reubens and Rembrandts
I liked the John Singer Sergeants
He told me he liked Turner
Never have I turned since then
No, never have I turned to any other man.


All this having been said,
I married an executive company head.
All this having been done, a Turner - I own one.
Here I am in this uniform, this pantsuit sort of thing,
Thinking of the art teacher.
I was just a girl then;
Never have I loved since then.
No, never have I loved any other man.
