Underpants and Teeth
Chris Page

every day, day after dayafter day,
we wash our teeth and
change our underpants

and we wash our teeth and change our underpants
day after day after day

and this is life; this is what we do
to keep the days going by
day after day after day
we wash our teeth and
change our underpants

and we learned from our parents
who day after day after day
washed their teeth and changed their underpants
the need to wash our teeth and change our underpants
day after day after day

and in our turn we’ll teach our children
to wash their teeth and change their underpants
day after day after day

and we will go on
day after day after day
washing our teeth and changing our underpants
until we have no more teeth to wash
and no more underpants to change
and then we’ll die
and then we’ll be dead
day after day after day
