[Michael:] You went to school to learn, girl
Things you never, never knew before...

[Jermaine:] Like I before E except after C...

[Michael:] And why 2 plus 2 makes four
Now now now, I'm gonna teach you...
[J5:] Teach you, teach you

[Michael:] All about love, dear...
[J5:] All about love

[Jermaine:] Sit yourself down, take a seat
All you gotta do is reapeat after me.

[Chorus:]
[J5:] ABC
[Michael:] Easy as...
[J5:] 123

[Michael:] ABC, 123, baby, you and me!

[Tito:] Come on, let me love you just a little bit!
[Jackie:] Come on, let me love you just a little bit!
[Jermaine:] I'm a going to teach how to sing it out!
[Michael:] Come on, come one, come on
Let me show you what it's all about!
Reading, writing and arithmetic
Are the branches of the learning tree

[Jermaine:] But without the roots of love every day, girl
[Michael:] Your education ain't complete
T-T-T-Teacher's gonna show you
[J5:] Show you, show you
[Michael:] How to get an A!

Sing a simple melody
[All:] That's how easy love can be!
