Wear a helmet on your head While you're riding with your friend And keep your brain safe and sound While you're riding around and around. Use your brain to figure out and see And be careful not to hit a tree.
The brain is the boss that runs the show It does a lot more than just store what you know. The cerebrum is the biggest part It controls your speech, muscles and helps you do art. The pituitary is as small as a pea It determines how tall you will grow to be. Other functions are to help you breathe, digest your food, Circulate blood, and control your mood Eat right, exercise, and be good to your brain If you do, you have much to gain.
Dementia, you thief Leaving so little behind All is forgotten
Brain cells destroyed and memory is drained, Worse and worse until nothing is retained, Scientists commit, Trying to fix it, Until then, a life, a family, constrained.
