Dahl, Roald: My Teacher Wasn'T Half As Nice As Yours Seems To Be

Portre of Dahl, Roald

My Teacher Wasn'T Half As Nice As Yours Seems To Be (English)

'My teacher wasn't half as nice as yours seems to be.
His name was Mister Unsworth and he taught us history.
And when you didn't know a date he'd get you by the ear
And start to twist while you sat there quite paralysed                                                         with fear.
He'd twist and twist and twist your ear and twist it more                                                    and more.
Until at last the ear came off and landed on the floor.
Our class was full of one-eared boys. I'm certain there                                                     were eight.
Who'd had them twisted off because they didn't know                                                            a date.
So let us now praise teachers who today are all so fine
And yours in particular is totally divine.'

Tanárom nem volt oly jó (Hungarian)


Tanárom nem volt oly jó mint tanárotok.
Neszenekednek hívták, történelmet tanitott.
Ha nem tudtál egy dátumot, megfogta füledet,
És csavargatni kezdte, a tag meg kővé meredt.
Csavarta, tekerte, csavarta, tekerte satöbbi,
Míg a fül leszakadt és a padlón kötött ki.
Mint verebek ültek ott a félfülű nebulók,
Kik nem tudtak valami történelmi dátumot.
A mai tanárt mint egy angyalt kell lefesteni,
A tiétek meg egyenesen isteni.
