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 »

Listen to me, children
And take some good advice
I'm gonna tell you somethin'
Now don't make me say it twice

You can put away your lessons
Throw away your books
Cause I'm gonna tell you what cooks

Venus was a woman
Who had a lot of charms
But she got so much huggin'
And she wore out both her arms

But she don't learn that in school
You don't learn that in school
There ain't no doubt about it
You don't learn that in school

Napoleon was a soldier
Smart as ever seen
But he learned his maneuvers
Alone with Josephine

But you don't learn that in school
You don't learn that in school
There ain't no doubt about it
You don't learn that in school

Robin Hood was famous
But one thing you should know
He only robbed the rich folks
Cause the poor folks had no dope

But you don't learn that in school
You don't learn that in school
There ain't no doubt about it
You don't learn that in school

King Arthur was a hero
He's famous everywhere
He had a big round table
Cause he couldn't stand the square

But you don't learn that in school
You don't learn that in school
There ain't no doubt about it
You don't learn that in school
