The teacher asked Suzy where her nose was, and Suzy pointed to it.

Next, she asked Freddy where his ears were, and he pointed to them.

Then she asked little Johnny where his heart was. Johnny pointed to his behind.

The teacher said, "No, that's not right. Let's try again. Where is your heart?"

Again, Johnny pointed to his rump and explained, "Every time my grandma comes over she gives me a hug, pats my behind, and says 'Bless your heart.'"

Return To Me

Recorded by Dean Martin,1958
(07 June 1917 – 25 Dec 1995)

Return to me
Oh my dear I'm so lonely
Hurry back, hurry back
Oh my love hurry back I'm yours

Return to me
For my heart wants you only
Hurry home, hurry home
Won't you please hurry home to my heart

My darling, if I hurt you I'm sorry
Forgive me and please say you are mine

Return to me
Please come back bella mia
Hurry back, hurry home to my arms
To my lips and my heart

Retorna me
Cara mia ti amo
Solo tu, solo tu, solo tu, solo tu
Mio cuore
