You’re a banker and an artist,

You’re a sprinter and a florist.

You’re an actor. You’re a juggler.

You’re a queen.

You’re a lawyer. You’re a manager.

You’re a nurse, and you’re a counselor.

You do more by noon than most have ever seen.

You’re a driver and a poet.

A politician (don’t you know it!)

You’re a botanist, a strategist,

And a judge.

You’re a mother and a father.

You’re a runner and a tightrope walker.

You’re a soldier fighting

In the war on drugs.

You’re a diplomat and an acrobat.

You’re a farmer. You’re a friend.

You tell stories. You mend fences.

You build dreams.

You’re an instructor and a trainer,

A communicator and demonstrator.

You’re a teacher! You’re incredible!

You’re supreme!
