"Wonderful World" as written by Cooke,sam and H Alpert S Cooke....
Don't know much about history
Don't know much biology
Don't know much about a science book,
Don't know much about the french I took
But I do know that I love you,
And I know that if you love me, too,
What a wonderful world this would be

Don't know much about geography,
Don't know much trigonometry
Don't know much about algebra,
Don't know what a slide rule is for
But I do know that one and one is two,
And if this one could be with you,
What a wonderful world this would be

Now, I don't claim to be an "A" student,
But I'm tryin' to be
For maybe by being an "A" student, baby,
I can win your love for me

Don't know much about history,
Don't know much biology
Don't know much about a science book,
Don't know much about the french I took
But I do know that I love you,
And I know that if you love me, too,
What a wonderful world this would be

History
Biology
Science book
French I took
But I do know that I love you,
And I know that if you love me, too,
What a wonderful world this would be

    General Commenthe is saying that although he is not a wordly person and he doesn't know much about anything, the one thing he knows is that he loves this person and at the end of the day that's all that matters. It beautiful in its simplicity.

    General CommentI was thinking about this today...it sounds like the song is about a stupid kid who has a crush on his teacher. Like he's trying really hard to get good grades so she'll love him.

    General CommentI think it was written to bewilder and annoy all the right people. And probably does to this day.
