Our Teacher's Multi-Talented

Our teacher’s multi-talented.
He plays guitar and sings.
He paints impressive pictures
and can juggle twenty rings.

He dances like an expert,
he can mambo, tap and waltz.
He’s also quite a gymnast,
doing airborne somersaults.

He’s something of a swimmer.
He’s a champion at chess.
It’s difficult to find a skill
that he does not possess.

He speaks a dozen languages.
He’s great at racing cars.
He’s masterful at fighting bulls,
and studying the stars.

He’s good at climbing mountains.
He can wrestle with a bear.
The only thing we wish he’d learn
is how to comb his hair.
