From the recording Something 'Bout You and Me

Lyrics

It all started back in ‘87We were seventeen sitting side by side in science classAnd instead of paying attention to what the teacher had to sayI made it my personal mission to make you laugh
You were brainy and I was always getting in troubleBecause studying biology wasn’t really my thingAll that talk about cells and genes didn’t do it for meBut I learned something about chemistry
Chorus: And I felt Newton’s law of attraction with your body next to mine I was more of a hands-on learner anyway And Plato’s law of affinity flashed across my mind I guess those old boys knew something ‘bout you and me I was dating a boy and teaching myself to play guitar You were playing sports and doing your homeworkAnd you passed that class because you were good at science and mathAnd I failed miserably but I never forgot your laugh
And then twenty-five years later, I was playing music on the roadAnd I ran into you in bar in OntarioWe didn’t recognize each other ‘til you put two and two togetherYour math skills came in handy that day
Chorus: I felt Newton’s law of attraction with your body next to mine I’m more of a hands-on learner anyway And Plato’s law of affinity flashed across my mind I guess those old boys knew something ‘bout you and me
I want to study the curves of your anatomyForget what I’ve learned about love and begin againTraverse your skin and know the scent and taste and touch of youConduct a thorough investigation of you
Chorus:Cuz I feel Newton’s law of attraction when your body’s next to mineI’m kind of a hands-on learner anywayAnd Plato’s law of affinity flashes across my mindI guess those old boys knew something ‘bout you and meAnd I feel Newton’s law of attraction when your body’s next to mineI’m kind of a hands-on lover anywayAnd Plato’s law of affinity flashes across my mindI guess those old boys knew something ‘bout you and meThose old boys knew something ‘bout you and meSomething ‘bout you and me
