The Beat Goes On

Teaching the Circulatory System
Joe Crone



This song is available on Joe Crone's Geometry Park.

You’re a tired little blood cell and you’re feeling blue.
No nutrients or oxygen inside of you.
You’ve just come back from the body and your work is done.
The first place you go is called the Right Atrium.

You look around and see it’s just a waiting room.
Other blood cells pile in until no one can move.
The trap door opens up and you fall down below.
You’re in the part of the heart that’s known as the Right Ventricle

Chorus:
And the Beat Goes On. (The Beat Goes On).
And the Beat Goes On. (The Beat Goes On).

There’s a mighty squeeze, a mighty push, your trip begins.
To the lungs and the Pulmonary Artery for oxygen.
It branches off into arteries and capillaries.
They take you to the Alveoli, your destiny.

You say, “Bye-Bye” to your load of good old carbon dioxide.
The O2 bonds with you and you start feeling fine.
You’re hanging on to the Hemoglobin and off you go.
To the Pulmonary Vein and the Heart with your precious load.

Chorus:
And the Beat Goes On. (The Beat Goes On).
And the Beat Goes On. (The Beat Goes On).

You pile into the Left Atrium. (Yeah)
With all the other red blood cells rich in oxygen. (Uh-huh)
The valve opens up into the Left Ventricle. (Yeah)
With one mighty squeeze you leave, it’s off you go.

You flow into the Aorta, a huge artery.
This super highway branches off into Capillaries.
You find the living cells and give them oxygen.
You pick up carbon dioxide and start all over again.

Chorus:
And the Beat Goes On. (The Beat Goes On).
And the Beat Goes On. (The Beat Goes On).
