It's a very ancient saying, but a true and honest thought
That if you become a teacher, by your pupils you'll be taught
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
[Spoken]: Getting to know you.

Getting to know you, getting to know all about you
Getting to like 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
