lyrics
verse
Just when I thought I finally learned my lesson well
There was more to this than meets the eye
And for all the things you taught me, only time will tell
If I'll be able to survive, oh yeah

chorus

Teacher, teacher, can you teach me
Can you tell me all I need to know
Teacher, teacher, can you reach me
Or will I fall when you let me go, oh no

verse
Am I ready for the real world, will I pass the test
You know it's a jungle out there
Ain't nothin gonna stop me, I won't be second best
But the joke's on those who believe the system's fair, oh yeah 

chorus
Teacher, teacher, can you teach me
Can you tell me if I'm right or wrong
Teacher, teacher, can you reach me
I wanna know what's goin on, oh yeah

bridge
So the years go on and on, but nothing's lost or won
And what you learned is soon forgotten
They take the best years of your life
Try to tell you wrong from right
But you walk away with nothing, oh oh

chorus
Teacher, teacher, can you teach me
Can you tell me all I need to know
Teacher, teacher, can you reach me
Or will I fall when you let me go

chorus
Teacher, teacher, can you teach me
Can you tell me if I'm right or wrong
Teacher, teacher, can you reach me
I wanna know what's goin on, oh

chorus
Teacher, teacher, can you teach me
Teacher, teacher, can you reach me
Teacher, teacher, can you teach me
Teacher, teacher, ooh yeah
Teacher, teacher
Teacher, teacher
