They teach you to read
They teach you to write
They teach you to say
Your prayers at night
They teach you good manners
And all that stuff

But they don't teach you how to love

Dad taught me fishin'
Baitin' the hook
Mama taught me how
To sew and cook
I know that they tried
But what I'm dreamin' of,

Is that someone's gonna teach me how to love

Anyone can move a mountain
If they work hard enough
If it was only that easy
To move someone to love

They teach you to hurt
They teach you to hate
And learn to hold back
Till it's just too late
Then they teach you to run
When the goin' gets tough

But they don't teach you how to love

They teach you to dance
They teach you to sing
These days they teach you
Everything
I know why my heart
Feels like it does

If someone's gonna teach me how to love

Please won't you teach me how to love
