Nat King Cole

Nathaniel Adams Coles (March 17, 1919 – February 15, 1965), known professionally as Nat King Cole, was a musician who first came to prominence as a leading jazz pianist. He owes most of his popular musical fame to his soft baritone voice, which he used to perform in big band and jazz genres. He was one of the first black Americans to host a television variety show, and has maintained worldwide popularity since his death. more »

Did you say that I've got a lot to learn 
Well don't think I'm trying not to learn 
Since this is the perfect spot to learn 
Teach me tonight 

Starting with the A-B-C of it 
Getting right down to the X-Y-Z of it 
Help me solve the mystery of it 
Teach me tonight 

The sky's a blackboard high above you 
And if a shooting star goes by 
I'll use that star to write "I love you" 
A thousand times across the sky 

One thing isn't very clear my love 
Teachers shouldn't stand so near my love 
Graduation's almost here my love 
You'd better teach me tonight 

I've played loves scenes in a flick or two 
And I've also met a chick or two 
But I still can learn a trick or two 
Hey teach me tonight 

I who thought I knew the score of it 
Kind of think I should know much more of it 
Off the wall, the bed, the floor of it 
Hey teach me tonight 

The midnight hours come slowly creeping 
When there's no one there but you 
There must be more to life than sleeping 
Single in a bed for two 

What I need most is post graduate 
What I feel is hard to articulate 
If you want me to matriculate 
You'd better teach me tonight 

What do you get for lessons 
Teach me, come on and teach me, teach me tonight
