Teach Me Tonight

Lyrics:Sammy Cahn
Music:Gene De Paul

The song was publishe 1953.

Cahn wrote a new verse for Frank Sinatra's 1984 recording
on L.A. Is My Lady, referencing Sinatra's many love affairs.

The song was recorded several times in 1954 and 1955.
The version by Janet Brace was apparently first,
making the Billboard chart on 10/23/54 and eventually reaching No. 23.
The biggest hit version of the song was recorded by The DeCastro Sisters,
charting at number two in 1955.

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 ABC of it
Getting right down to the XYZ 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

(* 2nd Lyric especially written for Sinatra by Sammy Cahn)

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
