Name of Song: Shapes and Sizes

Your body is a shape and size,
Each cell has its own mind,
Programmed long, so long ago
To survive the pain of time.

It can guide itself autonomously,
A wondrous thing to see,
The magic that I have inside
Has this urge to be like me.

It copies my directions,
It hears and acts on thought,
It’s also relies on what I think,
As it follows what its been taught.

Chorus
Bodies, all shapes and sizes,
Giving us a ride,
To where we want to go and do,
Their personal host and guide.
We like it doing our thinking,
It also has its plan,
Coordinating everything,
As we do the best we can.

When we see a body,
Sensing size and shape,
Perceiving through its weight and feel,
So we better know its state.

Our bodies have opinions,
That tell us what to do,
Like how much love we give to them,
Determines our next cue.

Shapes and sizes forever there,
They hide our inner self,
Try to show as much of you
Leave nothing up on your shelf.

Chorus
Bodies, all shapes and sizes,
Giving us a ride,
To where we want to go and do,
Their personal host and guide.
We like it doing our thinking,
It also has its plan,
Coordinating everything,
As we do the best we can.
