TITLE: To Sir, with Love
Lyrics and Chords

Those schoolgirl days
Of telling tales and biting nails are gone
But in my mind 
I know that 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

/ C - / D F C - / :
   / B7 Em / / D G D A7 /

If you wanted the sky, I would write across the sky in letters
That would soar a thousand feet high
To Sir, with love

/ D C D / C D / G A / 

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

Those awkward years
Have hurried by, why did they fly, 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, what is there that I can buy

If you wanted the world, I'd surround it with a wall, I'd scrawl
These words with letters ten feet tall
To Sir, with love
