This song is an oldie sung by Sam Cooke and was released on April 14, 1960. Wonderful World ( Don’t Know Much) was written by Sam Cooke and songwriters Lou Adler and Herb Alpert and it is about a guy who obviously hated school and didn’t achieve much at school, but he was falling in love with a girl who was the top of the class.

This song is unusual because of the lyrics which mention many subjects studied at school… Kind of funny but it is undeniably one of the sweet and unusual songs ever written.

Wonderful World – Sam 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 trying 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
