Lovely Teacher

by Linda Knaus

(sing to the tune of “Clementine”)

Lovely teacher, lovely teacher—
eyes of periwinkle blue.
You are such a pretty creature,
and I’m so in love with you.

How I long for your attention,
so I’m acting like a fool.
Put me down for some detention,
just don’t send me home from school.

Oh, I’m filled with pain and sorrow,
for my teacher is so cute,
but she won’t be here tomorrow,
’cause she’s just a substitute.
