". . . I'm sure with a little homework,
I'll graduate to your heart . . ."

  • Song Found On:
    Doris Day's Greatest Hits
    1990
  • The movie Teacher's Pet was released in 1958 and its title song, sung by the star of the film, Doris Day, received plenty of radio air play and peaked at number 56. Given the wholesome "girl-next-door" image of Doris Day and the ages/situations of the "student" and "teacher" involved , the lyrics were seen by radio listeners and movie goers as humorous and cute . . . now, over 40 years later, do you think the public might have a different view?

    As a connection for us Ohio folks, we note that Doris Day was born Doris von Kappelhoff on April 3, 1924 in Cincinnati Ohio.

 

TEACHER'S PET
sung by
Doris Day



Lyrics:

Teacher's pet!
I wanna be teacher's pet.
I wanna be huddled and cuddled
as close to you as I can get.
[that's the lesson we're guessin' you're best in]

Teacher's pride!
I wanna be teacher's pride.
I wanna be dated and rated
the one most likely at your side.
[ya gotta burnin' yearnin' to learn]

I wanna learn all you lips can teach me;
one kiss will do at the start.
I'm sure with a little homework,
I'll graduate to your heart!
[to your heart]

Teacher's pet!
I wanna be teacher's pet.
I wanna take home-a diploma
and show-Ma that you love me too,
so I can be teacher's pet
long after school is through!

[Teacher's pet.
You wanna be teacher's pet.
You wanna be huddled and cuddled
as close to him as you can get.]

I wanna learn all your lips can teach me;
one kiss will do at the start.
I'm sure with a little homework,
I'll graduate to your heart!

Teacher's pet!
[You love the teacher]
I wanna be teacher's pet.
I wanna take home-a diploma
and show-ma that you love me too,
so I can be teacher's pet
long after school is through!
[Teacher teacher she loves you!]
