Lulu - To Sir With Love Lyrics

Those schoolgirl daysOf telling tales, and biting nails, are goneBut in my mind, I know they will still live on and onBut how do you thank someoneWho has taken you from crayons to perfume?It isn't easy, but I'll tryIf you wanted the sky, I would write across the sky in letters, That would soar a thousand feet high:"To Sir, With Love"Those awkward yearsHave hurried by. Why did they fly away?Why is it, Sir, Children grow up to be people one day?What takes the place of climbing trees, And dirty knees in the world outside?What is there for you I can buy?If you wanted the world, I'd surround it with walls. I'd scrawlIn letters ten feet tall:"To Sir, With Love"The time has comeFor closing books; and long last looks must endAnd as I leave, I know that I am leaving my best friendA friend who taught me right from wrong, And weak from strong -- that's a lot to learnWhat -- what can I give you in return?If you wanted the moon, I would try to make a start... but IWould rather you let me give my heartTo Sir, With Love
