Head and Shoulders Knees and Toes

                              Head and Shoulders knees and toes, knees and toes
                              Head and shoulders knees and toes, knees and toes
                              Eyes and ears and a mouth and a nose
                              Head and shoulders knees and toes, knees and toes...
                                                                      That's what hurts

If you asked my grandmother Anna how she was on any given day, she answered- how could I be?  I am doing the best I can. I heard this response all of my life.  It is only now I understand it. In my previous life as a kindergarten teacher I sang the "Head and Shoulders" song.  I included hand motions, and I played the song on my guitar.  Everyone had fun.

I never dreamed the song would describe my aches and pains.  The knees and toes problems I leave to grandpa.  I can cover the rest.  When did all of this happen?  I discussed this with my friend and doctor, and he said " the body is breaking down".  Breaking down? Well can't we fix it?

I chipped two back teeth eating soft food.  Why is this happening I asked my friendly dentist.  " Well you know, it's an age thing".  I take pills, vitamins, I exercise, and do accupuncture.  I try to get enough sleep/ eat healthy and think positively. 

I think I should have spent more time singing,  " If You are Happy and you Know it Clap Your Hands". If only I knew.
