can you tell me a poem for the circulatory system?

How about a song?
There's a great new craze
That's sweeping the nation
Come on do the Circulation!

Out through your arteries, in through your veins,
Your heart pumps your blood, then it does it again,
So come on, everyone get it on,
Everyone, the Circulation!
So come on, everybody,
Exercise your body for circulation!

Circulation! Everybody form a circle now. (Uh-huh-huh)
Circulation! Like your blood, you just start moving around
Circulation! It's a function that's so out of sight
And if your feet fall asleep then
You're not circulating right.

You got four heart parts to pump the blood (lub dub!)
Yeah, that's circulation,
Left and right ventricle, left and right atrium,
Yeah, they do it, they circulate,
They pump blood through your lungs for oxygen,
And then your arteries take it through to your body
And your veins bring the old blood back to be renewed.

Circulation takes nutrition to your cells
And gets rid of carbon dioxide and waste as well.
Circulation, it's a function that's so out of sight,
And if your hands are cold then
You're not circulating right.

Well, your blood is such a life-giving potion,
Like a river it's always in motion,
From your head to your toes,
Doing good as it goes,
It's a big, red, beautiful ocean.

Now the blood's not bad, it's kind of special,
Yeah, come dig it! Circulation!
With these red and white corpuscle cells,
Yeah, come do it, Circulation!
Red cells carry oxygen, white cells fight the germs,
So come on, come do it, yeah, come do it, Circulation!
So come on, come do it, with your heart, come do it, Circulation!

Circulation! Everybody form a circle now. (Uh-huh-huh)
Circulation! Like your blood, you just start moving around
Circulation! It's a function that's so out of sight
So come on move around and
You'll be circulating right!

There's a great new craze that's sweeping the nation
Come on, do the Circulation!
It starts with your heart, what a great sensation,
Yeah, come do it, circulate!
Out through your arteries, in through your veins,
Your heart pumps your blood then it does it again.
Come on, everybody, get it on, everybody.
Circulation!
So come on, everybody, get it on, everybody.
Circulation!

The Circulation!

It starts with your heart,
What a great sensation,
Come on do the Circulation!

Yay, Schoolhouse Rock!
I bought the entire collection on DVD a couple of years ago. I told RavingWife that it was for RavingChild, but she didn't believe me. RavingWife was not born yesterday, apparently.
Have you seen the stage musical version?
I didn't even know there was a stage musical version!  I got 4 VHS tapes back in the 90s and watched them A LOT!  I wish I'd had them back when I had to memorize the Preamble to the Constitution cos that one is catchy...  If nothing else, it's come in handy for trivia cos I know the first 3 words are "We the people" and it's only because of Schoolhouse Rock.  I wish PBS would pick up the series.
 
Yeah, I was grooving to childhood memories thanks to that link...

...until I got Rickrolled...

...thanks.
Dammit.  I didn't watch the whole thing through.  Sorry about that!
 
No problem, I have a sense of humor.

As a matter of fact, I think it's really cool that Rick Astley has one too.  He finds the Rickrolling phenomenon really funny.

If only more celebrities didn't take themselves so seriously... (cough-Coolio-cough).
Awwww, poor Weird Al Yankociv...  He's such an amazing guy.  His songs and Schoolhouse Rock are all songs kids should listen to.

The stage version is a ton of fun. I caught it in Chicago when they were just starting out, but it sorta took off after that and went to New York, and then it toured for a while, I think. Big large fun.
I owe my passing grade in Civics class to Schoolhouse Rock, especially the Preamble song, and the "Counting by 5's" song is one of the catchiest tunes ever.
Good times....
Best Answer.

Press the button, Frank.

No, I can't think of one but I'll bet someone can.
I have it on good authority that Jack Prelutsky has done one but couldn't find it.  Maybe you can.
