This is the lyric sheet only, from the song packages (minus the professionally produced MP3 song vocals & lesson materials and song video).

‘Busy Bodies’ helps students to understand functions of various human body systems (respiratory, circulatory, digestive, skeletal, nervous) and the need to make healthy lifestyle choices.

The lyrics integrate learning across key areas of school curriculum, and make a perfect resource for kickstarting discussion / introducing PDHPE (Personal Development, Health & Physical Education) units, e.g. 'Keeping Myself Safe Around Drugs'...

Sample Lyrics:


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.
