Healthy is In and Junk is Out

Show or Hide Lyrics

Hey you peeps there are changes anew
There is something you’ve gotta do
Hey you mob now listen hard
There’s a secret that you must guard

CHORUS
It’s a new trend and there’s no doubt
Healthy is in and junk is out

Get the word out to all the crew
This new trend is overdue
Stop when you shop and think about
How to change and health it out
repeat CHORUS

Buying vegies, grains and some fruit too
Will decide if you’re a trendy you
Don’t be a bore and stay the same
You’re missing out and that’s a shamet
repeat CHORUS

If you know it’s fatty and junky food
Stay head strong and be a dude
Don’t fall for the gimmicks of the big companies
Join the health binge my buddy please
repeat CHORUS

So have you decided if you’re in or out?
Eating the right foods is what it’s all about
I know you well bro, you’re in the groove
Let’s jump on the trend now, make the move
repeat CHORUS x 3 and fade

Healthy Tucker Rap

Show or Hide Lyrics

VERSE 1

Drink milk and water every day
Sugary drinks NO stay away
Yoghurt and cheese are dairy based
Eat them early, won’t go to waste

CHORUS
Don’t get suckered by other’s habits
A chance to look smooth, go ‘n’ grab it
Groove and do the Healthy Tucker Rap
Jiggle your hips, give a High 5 slap

VERSE 2
Apples and oranges, mango too
Juice them up and drink them dude
Fill your wrap with vegies that rock
Muscles will build and chicks will flock
repeat CHORUS

VERSE 3
Pasta and grains, legumes and rice
You’ll look smooth bro, cool as ice
Junky is chunky so steer well clear
You could have a good bod every year
repeat CHORUS

Little Trachoma Germ

Show or Hide Lyrics

Little germ, little germ, where have you been?
I’ve been on you, little kid, sight unseen

Little germ, little germ what did you do?
I hid under your eyelid, spreading through

Little germ little germ that was quick
germ_01 I worked fast and made your eyes sick

Little germ little germ, what is wrong?
You washed your face, now I’m not strong

Little germ little germ, you’re fading fast
There’s no grot or snot left, so I won’t last

Little germ little germ, are you my friend?
No I’m not and I’m nearing the end

Little germ, little germ, I don’t like you
Your face stayed clean so now I’m through!

Brush ‘em.. 2 times, 2 times..per day!

Brush Your Teeth!

Brush, brush, brush your teeth
Gently all around
Twice a day, Twice a day
No holes to be found

Brush, brush, brush your teeth
With some nice toothpaste
Pea size, pea size,
Or it is a waste

Brush, brush, brush your teeth
A circle and a flick
Scrubbing, scrubbing,
That’ll do the trick

Brush, brush, brush your teeth
Then you brush your tongue
Spitting, Spitting,
No rinsing is done

Brush, brush, brush your teeth
Get rid of the grime
Cleaning, cleaning,
Try and find the time

At least 2 tissues per student are required each time the song is sung through.

Check my nose is empty just like this (deep breath out)

Breathe in and out 5,5,5
Breathe in and out 5 just like this (Deep breath in and out through the nose 5 times)

2 big coughs, coughs, coughs,
2 big coughs just like this

Everybody run, run, run,
Everybody run just like this (run on the spot)

Next I blow my nose, nose, nose,
Next I blow my nose just like this

Tissue in the bin, bin, bin,
Tissue in the bin just like this

Breathe in and out 5,5,5,
Breathe in and out 5 just like this

Two more big coughs, big coughs, big coughs,
Two more big coughs just like this

Everybody jump, jump, jump,
Everybody jump just like this (jump on the spot)

Do the BBC again, again, again,
Do the BBC again just like this

Until my nose is empty, empty, empty,
Until my nose is empty just like this

Then I wash my hands, hands, hands,
Then I wash my hands just like this

Last I wash my face, face, face,
Last I wash my face just like this

Healthy Food is Cool Dude!

Show or Hide Lyrics

Eat healthy foods instead of junk
Ensures you’re not a dead set punk
Chips and soft drink might taste O.K
But they don’t help in any way

You want to be real cool dude?
You need to eat more healthy food
You wanna be the best you can?
Then make good choices for YOU man

Don’t get suckered by your peeps
You can go forward in giant leaps
By saying no to loads of junk
Who really wants to eat that gunk?

Stick up for you, eat what you know
Will help your body grow, grow, grow.
Nourish your brain and body too
You’ll achieve the very best YOU

Junky foods just stunt your growth
Brains and power, you’ll have both
A balanced diet is fully cool,
You really get that, you’re no fool

Just steer clear of sugary drink
Give that idea a good sound think
When you’re careful what you put inside
Then you’re on the Healthy Ride

Trachoma Song

Show or Hide Lyrics

When your eyes are grotty,
Germs can sneak inside,
When your nose is snotty,
Germs can always hide.

Have you got a clean face?
Do your eyes have grot?
Have you got a clean face?
Did you clear the snot?

If your nose is runny,
Blow the snot away,
If your eyes are mucky,
Wash the germs away.

Have you got a clean face?
Do your eyes have grot?
Have you got a clean face?
Did you clear the snot?

Teach your bro and sister,
About a clean face,
To stop Trachoma germs,
Spreading ’round your place.

Have you got a clean face?
Do your eyes have grot?
Have you got a clean face?
Did you clear the snot?

Try and keep your face clean,
Shower every night,
You’ll kill the germs to win,
The Trachoma fight.
