THE GERMS 11

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 We’re the Germs 11
We’re about to start our game
We race around you inside out
From toe to bum to brain!

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Blood vessels try to foul our plans
And get right up your nose
Microbes pass like ghosts unseen
But raining snot’s in goal!

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 We will use your bogeys
For footy when we play
Your offside burps wont get past us
We tackle and blow them away!

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 We hide inside your burgers
And slip between your teeth
We’re always in red sauce of course
That’s our favourite kit!

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 We dribble down your streaming eyes
And shimmy when you sneeze
We trap your every cough and then
Right through your lungs we breeze!

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 We race around your underpants
And slip between your toes
We use your ribs and bits of crisps
And backbone for our posts!

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 We lob your liver all clean through
And chip your kidneys wide
Your every gas we simply blast
Cast aches and pains aside!

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Your corpuscles are no defence
As you start to scratch and itch
Your heart is thumping like a drum
We’re reaching fever pitch!

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Your smelly socks a pure delight
Like belly button bits
And when we play at home in you
Like a parrot you’ll feel sick!

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 You wash your hands and brush your teeth
And clean and cut your nails
But soon as you go out to play
The match kicks off again!
