I am the greatest goddess
You know why? Because I’m smart!
I taught courage, math, and strategy
And, of course, I loved the arts!

And just to prove I’m smart
I was born inside a brain
Zeus was having a headache
And from out of his head I came!

Then right from the beginning
This goddess helped the heroes
Heracles and Perseus —
I taught them all they know!

For you can have great beauty
And you can be real strong
But if you do not have great brains
You will not last too long!

So don’t listen to Aphrodite!
What good is pretty if you’re dumb?
Read and become smart like me:
Athena — goddess of wisdom!
