Life goes by

And you still wish

To dare and try

To eat the carrot with the gefilte-fish

To have a talking parrot, and

to prepare an unforgettable dish


You'd like to play Chellos in a band

To wear high heels of four inches or five,

Build the largest palace in the sand


Yes, you do try and strive

To achieve and still be eager

To dance, to fly or dive


So I promise you, dreamer

One day, very soon

You'll become an English teacher!


The End
