Nobody Taught Me
by Eartha Kitt

When I was a baby so I've been told
I was walking and talking at six weeks old

Nobody taught me. I figured it out for myself.
Well, you never get nowhere counting on somebody else

When I was in first grade just a week
I gave the other kiddies a course in Greek
At sweet sixteen I was busily employed
Explaining the theories of Sigmund Freud

Nobody taught me. I figured it out for myself.

When I found out what I could mean to men
My education started all over again
It really doesn't matter if you rich or poor
Just a millionaire who loves you can make you feel secure

Nobody taught me. I figured it out for myself.

I landed in Las Vegas
Broke the bank three times
I went to hire Liyah
Had the boogies bumming dimes

Nobody taught me. I figured it out for myself.
Well, you never get nowhere counting on someone else.

I was sued by J. P. Morgan for control of the Bank
Awarded me the verdict
I had just myself at the bank
The case was rounded up quick
As the Judge could plainly see
And you call it self defense
Because the law, yo was mean

Nobody taught me. I figured it out for myself.
Well, you never get nowhere counting on someone else.
I said you never get nowhere counting on someone else.

Tennis anyone?
