My Heart Is Taking Lessons

My Heart Is Taking Lessons

(James Monaco / John Burke)

Geraldo and his Orchestra

My heart is taking lessons
Learning how to sing
Every morning la-la-la-la
Ta-ta-ta-ta-la-ta-ta, poor thing

My heart is taking lessons
So conscientiously
Every moment la-la-la-la
Ta-ta-ta-ta-la-ta-ta, it amazes me

I know how hard it labours
To try and make the grade
It must annoy the neighbours
Practising upon a serenade

My heart is taking lessons
And I notice too
It began to la-la-la-la
Ta-ta-ta-ta-la-ta-ta, when I looked at you
