Dit dittle dittle dit
Dit dittle dittle dit
Dittle dittle dit dit!

There's a telegram for you, ma'am
And the message is clear
It says there's something bugging you
And buzzing in your ear
The results can be quite itchy
So what is your reply?
Tell your arm to swat that fly!

Hey, there's a telegraph line
You got yours and I got mine
It's called the nervous system
And everybody understands
Those telegram commands
And you know that everybody better listen!

The central nervous system
Is the brain and the spine
The brain controls the system
And the spine is the line
Telegrams come in
To tell what's happening to you
Then telegrams go out
To tell your body what to do

Dit dittle dittle dit
Dit dittle dittle dit
Dit dittle dittle dit

There's a telegram for you, sir
Better read it on the spot
It says your hand is near a stove
That's very, very hot
The results can be quite painful
And there's no time to think
Quick, pull that hand away, and get it to the sink!

There's a telegraph line
You got yours and I got mine
It's called the nervous system
And everybody understands
Those telegram commands
And you know that everybody better listen!

Your peripheral nerves
They go all out
Delivering those messages
Your senses send out
From your hearing and touch
To your sight and taste and smell
They let your brain react
To all the messages they tell

Dit dittle dittle dit
Dit dittle dittle dit
Dit dittle dittle dit

There's a telegram for you, kid
And it's at an awful time
It says you've got to go on stage
And you forgot your lines
You're going to be embarrassed
Because this telegram's a rush
Your heart starts beating faster and you blush!

Hey, there's a telegraph line
You got yours and I got mine
It's called the nervous system
And everybody understands
Those telegram commands
And you know that everybody better listen!

The autonomic system
Has a hold of you
Controlling automatically
Some things that you do
Your breathing and your heartbeat
Just go on naturally
And when you're scared, your nerves rev up the speed!

Dit dittle dittle dit
Dit dittle dittle dit
Dit dittle dittle dit

Hey, there's a telegraph line
You got yours and I got mine
It's called the nervous system
And everybody understands
Those telegram commands
And you know that everybody better listen!

Dit dittle dittle dit
Dit dittle dittle dit
Dit dittle dit dit!
