An English Teacher Song Lyrics

 
Bye Bye Birdie Soundtrack - Musical, 2000
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music
An English Teacher Rosie:

He's going in the Army



It's the best thing he could do

Now we're free to start to do

What we wanted to

Albert, Albert, A-A-A-Albert!

I remember how you told me

I should trust you for a year

It would just be for a year

But it's eight years, Albert!

Eight long years, Albert!

Albert:

Rosie, it takes time to go to business.

Rosie:

It was only a sideline

That's what you said

You just needed some money

That's what you said

You were going to college and get ahead

Instead of being a music business bum

You were going to NYU

And become an English teacher

An English teacher, an English teacher.

If only you'd been an English teacher

We'd have a little apartment in Queens

You'd get a summer vacation

And we would know what life means

A man who's got his masters

Is really someone

How proud I'd be if you had become one

It could have been such a wonderful life

I could have been Mrs. Peterson

Mrs. Albert Peterson,

Mrs. Phi Beta Kappa Peterson,

The English teacher's wife!

Albert:

Oh Rosie, I told you as soon as I get a few bucks ahead...

Rosie:

You said it before, Albert!

And along came Conrad Birdie...

And it was goodbye Geoffrey Chaucer

Hello William Morris

Goodbye NYU,

Hello all ALMAELOU

'Cause when you wrote Canard's first hit

Agha-bagha-boo

Then I knew that was it

You were through with English

Forever...

An English teacher is really someone

How proud I'd be if you had become one

It could have been such a wonderful life

I could have been Mrs. Peterson

Mrs. Albert Peterson,

Mrs. Phi Beta Kappa Peterson,

The English teacher's wife!
