Suspended From Class

Author: Tracyanne Campbell

You’re such a beautiful writer 

that’s not all you are 

I’m sorry about making a pass 

It was subtle but I think that you grasped 

The meaning intended 

I can be a friend to you 

I won’t pretend 

I’m not interested in breaking a heart 

It’s not love no it’s nothing like that 

I’ll leave that to lookers like him 

Oh he’s such a delicate thing 

Now it’s such a fragile thing that we have 

 

I should be suspended from class 

I don’t know my elbow from my arse 

I should be suspended from class 

I don’t know my elbow from my arse 

We could go out dancing 

But, in truth it is the last thing that I have on my mind 

Please say if I’m way out of line 

I won’t need telling twice 

Now he wants to kiss 

Said he can’t resist 

You’re going to have to keep it hidden inside 

I’ve a feeling that pigs might fly, might fly 

I should be suspended from class 

I don’t know my elbow from my arse 

I should be suspended from class 

I don’t know my elbow from my arse 

You’re such a beautiful writer 

And that’s not all you are 

I’m sorry about making a pass 

It was subtle but I think that you grasped 

The meaning intended 

 

I should be suspended from class 

I don’t know my elbow from my arse 

I should be suspended from class 

I don’t know my elbow from my arse
