the art teacher lyrics – rufus wainwright

there i was in uniform
looking at the art teacher
i was just a girl then;
never have i loved since then

he was not that much older than i was
he had taken our cl*ss to the metropolitan museum
he asked us what our favorite work of art was,
but never could i tell it was him
oh, i wish i could tell him —
oh, i wish i could have told him

i looked at the rubens and rembrandts
i liked the john singer sargents
he told me he liked turner
never have i turned since then
no, never have i turned to any other man

all this having been said,
i married an executive company head
all this having been done, a turner – i own one
here i am in this uniformish, pant-suit sort of thing,
thinking of the art teacher
i was just a girl then;
never have i loved since then
no, never have i loved any other man
