The Circulation Song
Teaching the Physiology of the Circulatory System
Robin Walling

This song is available on Robin Walling's Science in Song.

Arteries carry the blood away
Veins come back to the heart all day
60,000 miles it goes
Around and through the heart it flows

In the veins the blood is blue
Deoxygenated, yes that’s true
But in the arteries it’s red
To carry oxygen throughout, it’s said

The white blood cells are important ones
The spleen, lymph nodes, and tonsils make some
To fight off germs and kill disease
Producing antibodies when it needs


Hemoglobin’s in the red blood cell
Iron’s found in there as well
Without all that, anemic we’d be
With orange-looking blood, you’d tire easily

Three blood vessels do the job for you
Arteries, veins, and capillaries, too
Arteries are large, and capillaries, small
So nutrients can pass right through their walls


The veins contain the valves that shut
So blood only flows one way for us
In the heart four chambers you’ll find
Atrium and ventricle- left and right

Two types of circulation I know
Pulmonary and systemic both flow
The first to the lungs, the second all around
Circulation is a never-ending sound



 Have your students write their own verses about the circulatory system, and perform them to the instrumental version of this song, included in the CD.
