     To Sir, With Love - Lulu
     Words by Don Black, Music by Marc London
     Tabbed by svsmith@anet.bna.boeing.com

     [Verse]
     C                       D
     Those school girl days
                F                C
     of telling tales and biting nails are gone
     C                D
     But in my mind
                 F               C
     I know they will still live on and on

     [Pre-Chorus]
     B7                 Em
         But how do you thank someone
                 B7                           Em
         who has taken you from crayons to perfume
     D            G             D       A7 (xx2223)
         It isn't easy but I'll try

     [Chorus]
            D
     If you wanted the sky
         C                       D
     I'd write across the sky in letters
                C                    D
     that would soar a thousand feet high
        G         A      (riff)
     To Sir, With Love

     [Verse]
     C                     D
        The time has come
                 F                   C
     for closing books and long last looks must end
     C               D
     And as I leave
                 F            C
     I know that I am leaving my best friend
        
     [Pre-Chorus] 
     B7                        Em
        A friend who taught me right from wrong
            B7                                Em
        and weak from strong, that's a lot to learn
        D                G             D       A7
        What! what can I give you in return

     [Chorus]
            D
     If you wanted the moon
     C                               D
     I would try to make a start But I
           C                         D
     would rather you let me give my heart
        G         A      (riff)
     To Sir, With Love

     [Verse]
       C                        D
        Those awkward years
                     F               C
        have hurried by why did they fly away
     C                 D
        Why is it Sir
                      F        C
        children grow up to be people some day

     [Pre-Chorus]
     B7                         Em
        What takes the place of climbing trees
             B7                         Em
        and dirty knees in the world outside
     D                G             D     A7
        What is there for you I can buy

     [Chorus]
            D
     If you wanted the world
            C                        D
     I'd surround it with a wall I'd scrawl
           C                           D
     These words with letters ten feet tall
        G         A      (riff)  (end on strummed C)
     To Sir, With Love
  
     [Riff]

Right progression I'm guessing, but chords are wrong

progression is correct, but the song is in A.

I am Stephen V. Smith. This is my original contribution to OLGA in 1997. Will you please give me UG credit for it?

Thanks!
