Song Description

My main reason for cutting this track? It's a lotta fun to play on the piano! This track is also fun becuase it features half of KMLS (john Cross and Paul Rosenthal) and half of the Police Cars (Matt Bissonette and John Ferraro).

Story Behind the Song

An Elton John "deep cut" from Don't Shoot Me, I'm Only The Piano Player. It's the song after Daniel...

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
You give me education in the lovesick blues
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 doggoned thing
