#16 on BB Hot Country and #84 on
BB Hot 100 on SUN Records in 1959.


INTRO: F


#1.
          Fm
Well, the readin' and the writin' and arithmetic
                         F
never did get through to me.
   Fm
It ain't because I'm square or thick cause I 
               F
learned my A B C's. 
           Fm
But when I graduated from the grammar school
                      F
and I moved one grade above, I began to be a 
Fm                                        F
snook at books but I made straight A's in love.


CHORUS:
         Bb                              Gm
Now, the teacher would say to learn your Algebra,
        F
but I'd bring home C's and D's.
    Bb                                        F
How could I make an A when there's a swingin' maid
       G                                  F
on the left, and on the right, and in the back, and 
             C
the front of me?


BRIDGE:
       Fm
Oh, my grades are low on my card, I know, but they 
                   F
oughta give me one above.
          Bb                          Gm
If they'd give me a mark for learnin' in the dark,
    C                    F
I'd have straight A's in love.



INTERLUDE: F Bb C G F


#2.
Fm
Now, in my senior year with graduation near I did my 
Gm             Fm
homework every night.
Fm
And when my momma said I oughta go to bed I'd turn out 
Gm      F
all the lights.
C      Fm
But my sweetie pie was waitin' right outside, she'd be 

a-cooin' like a dove.
         Bb                                       C
Though I did my best, I failed semester test, but made 
                F
straight A's in love.


CHORUS:
         Bb                              Gm
Now, the teacher would say to learn your Algebra,
        F
but I'd bring home C's and D's.
    Bb                                        F
How could I make an A when there's a swingin' maid
       G                                  F
on the left, and on the right, and in the back, and 
             C
the front of me?


BRIDGE:
       Fm
Oh, my grades are low on my card, I know, but they 
                   F
oughta give me one above.
          Bb                          Gm
If they'd give me a mark for learnin' in the dark,
    C                    F
I'd have straight A's in love.
