SHE TAUGHT HIM A THING OR TWO, TOO
 
div
 
There was once a lady teacher who taught at the infant school
And the youngsters got on quite nicely while under teachers rule
Now, a certain youth, of the name of James, was long her devoted beau
But as time went on, Jimmy's love grew cool
And he thought the teacher of the infant school
Could be dropped like so.

Chorus: She taught the kiddies at the infant school
Taught them all they knew
And when her young man James got trying on his games
She taught him a thing or two, too.


As soon as she felt quite certain what James' intentions were
She appealed to a judge and jury, and they sympaqthised with her
Such a tale she told of the faithless James, that it quite made his Lordship frown
How he'd called her this, and he'd called her that
And how they'd often on the sofa sat with the light turned down.

Chorus: She taught the kiddies at the infant school
Taught them all they knew
And as the case progressed, the learned judge confessed
She'd taught him a thing or two, too.


The jury returned their verdict, which made Master James look glum
For to patch up her wounded feelings they gave her a good round sum
Then a note came from the repentant James
'I am aware, love, that I've been rash'
She replied, 'I'm very much obliged, but I much prefer your cash.'

Chorus: She taught the kiddies at the infant school
Taught them all they knew
And as he paid his bit, said Jimmy, 'I'll admit
She's taught me a thing or two, too.'
