Respiratory System Song

 

lyrics

Do you wanna' turn blue?
Oh no, not that!
Then you gotta' breathe,
Because breathin's where it's at!
Where it's at
Where it's at
Where it's at!

Respiration,
You gotta' breathe,
Take a deep breath,
You gotta' breathe, breathe, breathe!
Respiration,
You gotta' breathe,
Take a deep breath,
You gotta' breathe, breathe, breathe!

Inhaling air,
Through my mouth or my nose,
Right up my 2 nostrils,
But where does it go?
It can't hang around,
In my mouth,
By my tongue,
It's gotta' get down to my right and left lung!

It passes your pharynx,
It passes your pharynx
And then to your larynx,
And then to your larynx,
Known as your voice box,
Don't scream at your parents!

Respiration,
You gotta' breathe,
Take a deep breath,
You gotta' breathe, breathe, breathe!
Respiration,
You gotta' breathe,
Take a deep breath,
You gotta' breathe, breathe, breathe!

Down past your larynx,
But where is air going?
It's into your windpipe,
For tracheal flowing,
A few inches long,
With round tracheal rings,
Moving air in and out,
When you talk,
Or she sings...
LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA
Yeah, tracheal rings,
Like ladders have rungs,
That trachea's guiding,
Fresh air towards our lungs...

Now let's stay on top of this,
Air's not for the esophagus
Now let's stay on top of this,
Air's not for the esophagus
The trachea knows,
That's where air's gotta' go!
The trachea knows,
That's where air's gotta' go!

Respiration,
You gotta' breathe,
Take a deep breath,
You gotta' breathe, breathe, breathe!
Respiration,
You gotta' breathe,
Take a deep breath,
You gotta' breathe, breathe, breathe!

Trachea split to a pair of bronchi,
A left one, and right one,
Moving air from the sky,
The bronchi branch into small bronchioles,
They're inside your lungs,
It's where air's gotta' go!
Bronchioles divide into alveoli,
Where gas exchange happens,
With air from the sky...
Aveoli- alveoli
The respiratory organs,
On which mammals rely!
To transfer the oxygen,
That's found in fresh air,
To nourish our body,
From toes to up here!

Lungs are the ones,
And they're moving in place,
Contracting, expanding,
To set breathing's pace,
Controlled by the diaphragm,
Controlled with such ease,
Our 2 human lungs,
Are what let us all breathe!

Respiration,
You gotta' breathe,
Take a deep breath,
You gotta' breathe, breathe, breathe!
Respiration,
You gotta' breathe,
Take a deep breath,
You gotta' breathe, breathe, breathe!

Oxygen in, C-O-2 out,
Respiration is breathing,
That's what it's about
Take care of your lungs,
The song we should all sing,
And keep the air clean,
For each living thing...

Respiration,
You gotta' breathe,
Take a deep breath,
You gotta' breathe, breathe, breathe!
