It's a very ancient saying
But a true and honest thought,
That if you become a teacher,
By your pupils you'll be taught.

As a teacher, I've been learning
(You'll forgive me if I boast.)
And I've now become an expert
On the subject I like most,

Getting to know you.


Getting to know you, getting to know all about you
Getting to like you, getting to hope you like me
Getting to know you,
Putting it my way, but nicely
You are precisely my cup of tea!

Getting to know you, getting to feel free and easy
When I am with you, getting to know what to say.
Haven't you noticed?
Suddenly I'm bright and breezy
Because of all the beautiful and new things
I'm learning about you day by day.

Repeat Refrain
