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.
