". . . teacher, teacher can you reach me . . ."

  • Song Found On:
    Soundtrack "Teacher, Teacher"
    1984
  • "Teacher, Teacher" by the southern rock band 38 SPECIAL comes from the soundtrack of the 1984 movie Teachers. Know how the group got its name? Well . . . the group was just forming and had found an old abandoned warehouse in which to conduct their first rehearsal. Soon after they started playing, they heard sirens outside . . . suddenly the doors flew open, policemen entered the room with their guns drawn. The policemen told the boys to quiet down and said that "their .38 Specials would do the talking". The "boys" decided that 38 Special would make the perfect name for their group! This song can most easily be found on one of their greatest hits CDs.

Lyrics:

Just when I thought I finally learned my lesson well,
There was more to this than meets the eye.
And for all the things you taught me, only time will tell,
If I'll be able to survive. Oh yeah.

Teacher, teacher, can you teach me?
Can you tell me all I need to know?
Teacher, teacher, can you reach me?
Or will I fall when you let me go? Oh no.

Am I ready for the real world, will I pass the test?
You know it's a jungle out there.
Ain't nothin' gonna stop me, I won't be second best,
But the joke's on those who believe the system's fair, oh yeah.

Teacher, teacher, can you teach me?
Can you tell me if I'm right or wrong?
Teacher, teacher, can you reach me?
I wanna know what's goin' on, Oh yeah.

So the years go on and on, but nothing's lost or won.
And what you learned is soon forgotten.
They take the best years of your life,
Try to tell you wrong from right,
But you walk away with nothing. Oh Oh.

Teacher, teacher, can you teach me?
Can you tell me all I need to know?
Teacher, teacher, can you reach me?
Or will I fall when you let me go?

Teacher, teacher, can you teach me?
Can you tell me if I'm right or wrong?
Teacher, teacher, can you reach me?
I wanna know what's goin' on, Oh

Teacher, teacher, can you teach me?
Teacher, teacher, can you reach me?
Teacher, teacher, can you teach me?
Teacher, teacher, Ooh yeah.
Teacher, teacher
Teacher, teacher
