The kids in this song share their unique set of talents, or dare we say, superpowers!
Now I don’t know why, but, um, this year,
Every kid in my class is, like, kind of weird.
Each one is extraordinary, one of a kind,
And when we show our talents, we’ll be blowing your mind.
First up, there’s a girl named Fanisha W,
She can make her tongue look like a W.
She said it took a lot of practice, again and again,
She did the same thing, and I’d give it a "10."
Now I must disclose and tell you a secret,
That Peter Secrist has a nose that he can eat with.
He can put his nose in a cup of juice,
And slurp it up quick, like it was nothing new.
Now Kato is capable and able to cut through a table,
Using nothing more than his pinkie.
He goes, "Hi-ya!" and the table’s in half,
He’s like a ninja, yeah, but he’s only eight and a half.
Casper is one of the best, a master at talking,
But not to humans; no, he’s squawking.
He talks to birds, chats with the pigeons,
Like, "Hdroo-hdroo," so with the pigeons he’s chilling.
We’ve got talent, uh-huh!
Now our teacher, Ms. Leemer, likes to be sure
That we don’t show off too much.
But I’ve seen her turn into a lizard. "A lizard?"
Yes, I swear she’s some kind of witch or wizard.
Murs acts like an adult, real mature,
But he’s the youngest guy in our grade for sure.
He’s developed and brought about a new machine,
It makes and manufactures a super bean.
If you eat this bean you disappear,
I mean you’re invisible; no one can see you there.
So you can wander through the town like a ghost,
Stealing licks off of other people’s ice cream cones.
Liz wrote a whole book in the fourth grade,
It became a best seller by the fourth day.
Don’t forget Jorge, who built a whole horse,
Out of forks and spoons and some knives, of course.
We have a variety of talents, a whole bunch,
And none are the same; they’re all different ones.
So, yeah, we’ve got talent and it’s really ill,
But, hey, you never know someone’s hidden skills.
We’ve got talent, uh-huh!
