There I was in uniform
Looking at the art teacher
I was just a girl then
Never have I loved since then

He was not that much older than I was
He had taken our class to the Metropolitan Museum
He asked us what our favorite work of art was
And never could I tell it was him
Oh I wish I could tell him
Oh I wish I could have told him

I looked at the Rubens and Rembrandts
I liked the John Singer Sargents
He told me he liked Turner
Never have I turned since then
No never have I turned to any other man

All this having been said
I married an executive company head
All this having been done
A Turner
I own one

And here I am in this uniformish pant-suit sort of thing
Thinking of the art teacher

I was just a girl then
Never have I loved since then

No, never have I loved any other man
