puzzle solution

Too wise you are.  Too wise you be.   I see you are too wise for me.

My grandmother copied this one when she was in school over 80 years ago.

Wow.... they had SMS over 80 years ago?

Thanks for the answer, I tried to get it, I got everything but the "YY' part. I guess I'm not too wise.

YYURYYUBEICURYY4ME=UR2SB2MM

if you read the first 2 as "too“ and the second 2 as "to"...

SB and MM should be read in Chinglish (I'd rather say pingyin)...

Again, i am kidding, just kidding, don't be angry with me if you got it.

If ...is too wise to you, it means you are too...to...?
