What keeps your body from going "squish"
Lying on the ground like a jellyfish?
It's the bones in your body
That help you dance at the party
Your hip bone attaches to your thigh bone and shin bone
Your ribcage sprouts from your spine
When your vertebrae wiggles around & around
Well, your skull bone will have a good time
How many bones are shown in the X-ray pics?
Kids have 300, adults 206
Lots of bones in your body
Big and small in your body
And as you groove they move and bend at the joints
Where your ligaments flex like a spring
Some joints twirl like a merry-go-round
Others go back and forth like a swing (Wee!)
When you put all your bones together as one
It's what we call your skeleton
All the bones in your body, and the joints in your body
Help you dance at the party
Raise your bones up in the air!
