Straight A's In Love Lyrics

well, the readin' and the writtin' and arithmatic
never did get through to me
it ain't because i'm square or thick
'cause i learned my ABC's
but when i graduated from the grammer school
and i moved one grade above
i began to be a snook at books
but i made straight A's in love

now the teacher would say
to learn your algebra
but i'd bring home C's and D's
how could i make an A
when there's a swingin' maid
on the left and on the right
and in the back and the front of me
oh, my grades are low
on my card i know
but they oughta give me one above
if they'd give me a mark
for learnin' in the dark
i'd have straight A's in love

now in my senior year
with graduation near
i did my homework everynight
and when my momma said
i oughta go to bed
i turn out all the lights
but my sweetie pie
was waitin' right outside
she'd be a cooin' like a dove
though i did my best
i failed semester test
but made straight A's in love

now the teacher would say
to learn your algebra
but i'd bring home C's and D's
how could i make an A
when there's a swingin' maid
on the left and on the right
and in the back and the front of me
oh, my grades are low
on my card i know
but they oughta give me one above
if they'd give me a mark
for learnin' in the dark
i'd have straight A's in love
