The Art Teacher Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

There I was in uniform
Lookin' at the art teacher
I was just a girl then
Never have I loved since then

He was not that much older than I was
He had taken our class to the Metropolitan Museum
He asked us what our favorite work of art was
But never could I tell him, it was him

Oh, I wish, I could tell him
Oh, I wish, I could have told him

I looked at the Rubens and Rembrandts
I liked the John Singer Sargents
He told me he liked Turner

Never have I turned since then
No, never have I turned to any other man

All this having been said
I married an executive company head
All this having been done, a Turner, I own one
And here I am in this uniformish, pant-suit sort of thing
Thinkin' of the art teacher

I was just a girl then
Never have I loved since then
No, never have I loved any other man
