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!
