MIDI File

Prince: A girlie shouldn't know too much,
Prince & Hopkins: Now should she?
Wanda & Josette: How could she?
Hopkins: No man will fall for Greek and such,
Prince & Hopkins: Now will he?
Wanda & Josette: How silly!
Prince & Hopkins: A girlie needn't be too wise,
If she has pretty hair and eyes.
Wanda & Josette: But what you know will not desert you.
Prince & Hopkins: And what you don't know will not hurt you!
What you don't know...
Wanda & Josette: What you don't know...
Prince & Hopkins: Won't hurt you, never forget
Wanda & Josette: It's what you know makes all the trouble,
Prince & Hopkins: What you don't know...
Wanda & Josette: What you don't know...
Prince & Hopkins: You can't regret.
Wanda & Josette: Of course there's really quite a bit
In that, when you consider it.
Prince & Hopkins: If you're too wise you're certain to know,
Wanda & Josette: A whole lot of things that really aren't so,
All: So hold your lips right, dear,
And you'll learn all a girlie should know.
Prince & Hopkins: What you don't know...
Wanda & Josette: What you don't know...
Prince & Hopkins: Won't hurt you, never forget
Wanda & Josette: It's what you know makes all the trouble,
Prince & Hopkins: What you don't know...
Wanda & Josette: What you don't know...
Prince & Hopkins: You can't regret.
Wanda & Josette: Of course there's really quite a bit
in that, when you consider it.
Prince & Hopkins: If you're too wise you're certain to know,
Wanda & Josette: A whole lot of things that really aren't so,
All: So hold your lips right, dear,
And you'll learn all a girlie should know.
   
Prince: A girlie may say "ain't" and "tain't,"
Prince & Hopkins: Just fancy!
Wanda & Josette: How can she?
Hopkins: No man would ever make complaint,
Prince & Hopkins: Now would he?
Wanda & Josette: Why should he?
Prince & Hopkins: It doesn't matter how she speaks,
If she has dimples in her cheeks.
Wanda & Josette: But what you know is so enduring.
Prince & Hopkins: And what you don't know so alluring!
What you don't know...
Wanda & Josette: What you don't know...
Prince & Hopkins: Won't hurt you, take it from me
Wanda & Josette: It's just a waste of time to study,
Prince & Hopkins: What you don't know...
Wanda & Josette: What you don't know...
Prince & Hopkins: You're sure of, see?
Wanda & Josette: If we had known that simple rule,
We never would have gone to school.
Prince & Hopkins: What you don't know you never can tell.
Wanda & Josette: And what you don't hear sounds awfully well,
All: So close your eyes tight, dear,
And you'll learn all a girlie should know.
Prince & Hopkins: What you don't know...
Wanda & Josette: What you don't know...
Prince & Hopkins: Won't hurt you, take it from me
Wanda & Josette: It's just a waste of time to study,
Prince & Hopkins: What you don't know...
Wanda & Josette: What you don't know...
Prince & Hopkins: You're sure of, see?
Wanda & Josette: If we had known that simple rule,
We never would have gone to school.
Prince & Hopkins: What you don't know you never can tell.
Wanda & Josette: And what you don't hear sounds awfully well,
All: So close your eyes tight, dear,
And you'll learn all a girlie should know.
