If you knew how I could love you you throw them books away

Your look's so somethin' special your figure is delicious
But you're colder as a iceberg and romantic as a fish
You're an educated mama readin' night and day
If you knew how I could love you you throw them books away

I'm goin' to the graveyard and dig a place I found
For anyone as dead as you belongs deep in the ground
You're an educated mama readin' night and day
If you knew how I could love you you throw them books away

You throw them books away
