Getting To Know You

Getting To Know You
music by Richard Rodgers (left)
lyric by Oscar Hammerstein II (right)

It's a very ancient saying, but a true and honest thought,
That "if you become a teacher by your pupils you'll be tought."
As a teacher I've been learning (You'll forgive me if I boast)
And I've now become an expert on the subject I like most:
Getting to know you...

Getting to know you, getting to know all about you,
Getting to know you, getting to hope you like me.
Getting to know you---putting it my way, but nicely,
You are precisely my cup of tea!

Getting to know you, getting to feel free and easy;
When I am with you, getting to know what to say---
Haven't you noticed? Suddenly I'm bright and breezy
Because of all the beautiful and new things I'm learning about you,
Day by day...
