The Skeletal System
Teaching About the Skeleton
This song is available on Lyrical Learning's Lyrical Life Science Volume 3: The Human Body
Part A: Oh, shiver me timbers don’t you know these bones are
The appendicular skeleton, the other’s axial
One is the pelvis, arms and legs, appendages all
The other on the axis are the ribs, spine and the skull
Part B: In my legs are the fibula also the tibia
Femur’s the bone in my thigh
The ankle bone tarsals, and the metatarsals
stubbed phalanges make me cry
In my arm is the radius, ulna, and humerus
next to the biceps so strong
In my wrist there are carpals, and the metacarpals
finger phalanges are long
Part C: You have your long bones and your short bones and the
flat and irregular
Ligaments join them at the joints, tendons connecting them to
Layers of bones include hard compact and the spongy cancellous
And there’s the marrow in the cavity to make blood cells for all
parts of you...
