I was in the classroom after school.
Started combing my hair to the side.Hold my little hand, baby, lord, it's a shame, I know, Thinking of how it could.Even though I lived on the opposite side.Textbook love in the textbook style.Thinking of how it could.Hold my little hand, baby.Hold my little hand, baby, lord, it's a shame, I know.
Anything that I could do, just to keep your attention.
Textbook love, textbook love, hold my little hand, baby, i started to wear my dad's cologne.
But I was just a phantom passing.
Working on the chalkboard once again.
Textbook love, textbook love, hold my little hand, baby, text book love.
Thinking back now, I'm sure that was the only attraction, baby.
When you where on the track home with your friends.You were the girl I was dreaming.I was nobody at all, i just needed an answer, baby, textbook love, textbook love, hold my little hand, baby, textbook love, You were the girl I was dreaming.Hold my little hand, baby, never will I know what you saw.I said, "Sure, I don't need to be home soon anyway, anyway.".When I saw you, saw you there.You were wondering if I'd walk you home.But surely you knew exactly what I saw in you.You were in your uniform standing by the door.Textbook love, when I was on my way to redemption, baby.Textbook girl with the textbook smile.
