Sam Cooke - What A Wonderful World (Official Lyric Video)

In Sam Cooke's 1960 hit, "Wonderful World," the binary is not school knowledge versus rock but school knowledge versus love. The lyric to Cooke's song adopted a mark scheme, a device also used in the Cliff Richard song "'D' in Love," to show how the narrator was failing in school. "Don't know much about History," "don't know what a slide rule is for, " sings Cooke, whose narrator perceives that he is not going to be an "A" student. None of this matters as long as the girl he loves - to whom the song is addressed - loves him too, in which case the world will be wonderful.

These songs were neutral about the processes of schooling. They also maintained the separation of schooling from leisure and hence sex except in the infantalised world of "Jennifer Eccles." "Teacher's Pet" was somewhat different in that the boundaries between work and leisure became blurred. "I wanna be homad diplomad long after school is through" runs the chorus. The phrase, "teacher's pet" recurs in the song "Don't Stand So Close To Me," a hitfor the reggae-rock band, The Police in 1980. This song contains the most explicit treatment of teacher pupil sexual relations to date in any pop song. Two voices are present in the lyric, that of the narrator and that of the youngmale teacher whose voice is heard in the chorus: 041b061a72
