"The Bone Dance"
Everybody knows the bones,
Just had to find a way

Everybody know what I'm talking 'bout,
That's how I'll get an "A"
My body's many parts
And this is where it starts
Phalanges I have ten,
And metatarsals then
I got some tarsals too,
I'll put them in my shoes
The fibula is next,
According to my text
Then comes the tibia,
That ain't no fibia
And now I'm up to my knee
Yeah, yeah, yeah
That's the patella to me
We're doin' the bone dance
We study the answers
Again and again 'til I get it right
We're doing the bone dance
Ya dance and you'll learn it
And we won't mess up this test
We'll get it perfect
And now I take it home,
With the parietal bone
It might be crazy,
But we learn that way
Temporal and frontal too
And now we're finally through
That makes two hundred and six
I found a way that clicks

[Chant]
Bone thugs in the house

We're doin' the bone dance
Ya study the answers,

Again, and again 'til I get it right
We're doin' the bone dance
Ya dance and you'll learn it
And we won't mess up this test
We'll get it perfect
