Nat King Cole – You Don't Learn That In School lyrics

Listen to me, children
And take some good advice
I'm gonna tell you somethin'
Now don't make me say it twice

You can put away your lessons
Throw away your books
'Cause I'm gonna tell you what cooks

Venus was a woman
Who had a lot of charms
But she got so much huggin'
And she wore out both her arms

But she don't learn that in school
You don't learn that in school
There ain't no doubt about it
You don't learn that in school

Napoleon was a soldier
Smart as ever seen
But he learned his maneuvers
Alone with Josephine

But you don't learn that in school
You don't learn that in school
There ain't no doubt about it
You don't learn that in school

Robin Hood was famous
But one thing you should know
He only robbed the rich folks
'Cause the poor folks had no dope

But you don't learn that in school
You don't learn that in school
There ain't no doubt about it
You don't learn that in school

King Arthur was a hero
He's famous everywhere
He had a big round table
'Cause he couldn't stand the square

But you don't learn that in school
You don't learn that in school
There ain't no doubt about it
You don't learn that in school
