(sing to the tune of “Do Your Ears Hang Low?”)
Do your big feet smell?
Do your dirty socks as well?
When you’re playing with your friends
here’s a certain way to tell:
If they’re pointing at your sneaker
and you see they’re getting weaker,
then your big feet smell.
Is your breath so vile
when you yawn or burp or smile?
When you look from side to side,
have the kids all left your aisle?
Are your classmates almost dying?
Is the teacher really crying?
Then your breath is vile.
