Sample Lyrics:

(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!)

Verse 1

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.
