To Sir, With Love

Sung by Lulu

To Sir With Love
Words and music by Don Black & Marc London © 1967

Those school girl 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’d write across the sky in letters
that would soar a thousand feet high,
To Sir, With Love.

Those awkward years, have 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 a wall I’d scrall
These words with letters ten feet tall,
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 can I give you in return?

If you wanted the sky I’d write across the sky
If you wanted the world I’d surround it with a wall
If you wanted the moon I would try to make a start

If you wanted the sky
If you wanted the world
If you wanted the moon
