   / Rufus Wainwright  /  I think this song obviously is about a crush on his
  / The Art Teacher   /  art teacher. I love especially the second verse for
 / Want Two          /  it's line "And never could I tell him it was him".
/___________________/  Do I have to reapeat that Rufus is simply a genious? ;)

 LYRICS
*********
There I was in uniform
Looking at the art teacher
I was just a girl then
Never have I loved since then

He was not that much older than I was
He had taken our class to the Metropolitan Museum
He asked us what our favourite work of art was
And never could I tell it was him
Oh, I wish I could tell him
Oh, I wish I could have told him

I looked at the Rubens and Rembrandts
I liked the John Singer Sargents
He told me he liked Turner
Never have I turned since then
No, never have I turned to any other man

All this having been said
I married an executive company head
All this having been done
A Turner - I own one

And here I am in this uniformish, pant-suit sort of thing
Thinking of the art teacher
I was just a girl then
Never have I loved since then
No, never have I loved any other man
