Teacher, teacher
'm really not N love with U
But U'r the teacher
try 2 do what U want me 2
know U get lonely
Cuz U gotta know it wasn't love
Let me tell U, honey
'm just a young girl
Don't think know it enuff

Teacher, teacher
don't wanna get an A
Teacher, teacher
There's gotta B a better way

'm sick & tired of makin' plans
Without makin' up my mind (Make up ur mind)
Teacher, teacher
Can't U C just need a little time?
know U've been cryin'
Cuz U spent the night alone
Well, then can cry me a river
It's Y don't deliver
We'll have 2 do it on the phone

Teacher, teacher
don't wanna get an A
Teacher, teacher
There's gotta B a better way
Woo yeah...
Woo

Teacher, teacher
'm not really tryin' 2 get U down
But Y should U get used 2 somebody
Who won't B around?
know U get discouraged
Cuz U wanna give it all the time
Honey, can't let U use my body
The same way U use my mind

Teacher, teacher
don't wanna get an A
Teacher, teacher
There's gotta B a better way
{repeat chorus}
Oh, don't wanna do it
Don't U make me do it
don't wanna... teacher... oh teacher
Hey good teacher, don't wanna do
No, don't wanna... it
No no no...
Yeah!
Ooh, ooh
Teacher, teacher {repeat}
