  • ABBA gets its name from the first letters in the first names of the four members . . . Agnetha, Bjorn, Benny, Anni-Fred. This two-boy, two-girl, Swedish group was one of the pop giants of the mid to late seventies Disco era. The songs of ABBA were noted for the driving, highly danceable, energy. Most rock music critics and even many of the more "sophisticated" teenagers of the 1970s dismissed ABBA's music as childishly simple . . . yet, nearly 30 years later, their albums are still going strong. This song is often officially cited as one of Benny's (the song's co-writer) favorites. The lead vocal is by Agnetha.

 

WHEN I KISSED
THE TEACHER

By
ABBA



Lyrics:

Everybody screamed
When I kissed the teacher
And they must have thought they dreamed
When I kissed the teacher
All my friends at school
They had never seen the teacher blush
He looked like a fool
Nearly petrified 'cause he was taken

By surprise (hug hug him, wanna kiss him, wanna kiss him)
When I kissed the teacher (oh, hug hug him, wanna kiss him, wanna kiss him)
Couldn't quite believe his eyes (oh, hug hug him, wanna kiss him, wanna kiss him)
When I kissed the teacher (oh, hug hug him, wanna kiss him, wanna kiss him)
My whole class went wild
As I held my breath
The world stood still
But then he just smiled (smiled, I wanna kiss him)
I was in the seventh heaven
When I kissed the teacher

One of these days
Gonna tell him I dream of him every night
One of these days
Gonna show him I care
Gonna teach him a lesson all right

I was in a trance (oh, my I wanna kiss him, wanna kiss him)
When I kissed the teacher (oh, hug hug him, wanna kiss him, wanna kiss him)
Suddenly I took the chance (oh, hug hug him, wanna kiss him, wanna kiss him)
When I kissed the teacher (oh, hug hug him, wanna kiss him, wanna kiss him)
Leaning over me
He was trying to explain the laws of geometry (hug him, wanna kiss him)
And I couldn't help it
I just had to kiss the teacher

One of these days
Gonna tell him I dream of him every night
One of these days
Gonna show him I care
Gonna teach him a lesson all right

What a crazy day (hug hug him, wanna kiss him, wanna kiss him)
When I kissed the teacher (ooh, hug hug him, wanna kiss him, wanna kiss him)
All my sense had flown away (ooh, hug hug him, wanna kiss him, wanna kiss him)
When I kissed the teacher (ooh, hug hug him, wanna kiss him, wanna kiss him)
My whole class went wild
As I held my breath
The world stood still
But then he just smiled (smiled, I wanna kiss him)
I was in the seventh heaven
When I kissed the teacher (I wanna hug, hug, hug him)
When I kissed the teacher (I wanna hug, hug him)
