I don't know much about my history, now
Don't know much about the science book, now

And I wonder if you love me too

Don't know much about trigonometry, now
Don't know what a slide rule is for
But I do know one and one is two, now
Ooh, what a wonderful world this could be
I don't claim to be an 'A' student
But by being an 'A' student, baby

Don't know much about biology
Don't know much about the good French I took, oh
All I do know is I love you, now, oh now
Ooh, what a wonderful world this could be
Good Lord, I don't claim to be an 'A' student
But if I have to be an 'A' student, baby

Don't know much about trigonometry
Don't know what a good slide rule is for
But I do know one and one is two, now, oh now
Ooh, what a wonderful world this could be
Oh, my, my good Lord, I've been trying
To understand the thing
