TO SIR WITH LOVETo Sir With Love, sung by Lulu. I adore this wonderful, coming-of-age song, and I love the movie. My husband told me that his first band, The Boys Next Door, used to do a cover version of this song. That I would’ve liked to see! Love Susie. x

To Sir with Love

Those schoolgirl days

Of telling tales and biting nails are gone

But in my mind

I know they will still live on and on

But how do you thank someone

Who has taken you from crayons to perfume?

It isn't easy, but I'll try

If you wanted the sky

I would write across the sky in letters

That would soar a thousand feet high

"To sir, with love"

The time has come

For closing books and long last looks must end

And as I leave

I know that I am leaving my best friend

A friend who taught me right from wrong

And weak from strong

That's a lot to learn

What, what can I give you in return?

If you wanted the moon

I would try to make a start

But I would rather you let me give my heart

"To sir, with love"
