Both hands and their fingers
Can drum on a hollow surface
When boredom wants something to do
Those vice grip thumbs
Ready to help their partners
Eight fidgety fingers
Each with their own little brain
So many things they can do
How about make a basket?
Train your fingers to make something useful
Keep up the good work
Keep those nails clean and trimmed
Don’t forget your fingers
Where would you be with even one missing digit?
You are incredible
You do a thousand things
Without us even thinking
They are so automatic
Good job fingers
