(Song audio sample in Preview at the top of this page)
I’m a busy body if you know what I mean,
A fine-tuned, moving, thinking machine;
From my awesome brain to my great big heart,
I’m a walking, talking work of art!
(I’m a walking, talking work of art!)
The Respiratory System on our lungs it depends;
Breathing in and breathing out, it never ends.
There’s no doubt about it, we can’t live without it,
Respect the gift of life and treat it well, my friends.
