BURPS

A song about respect for others

Burps are a natural phenomenon
Our tummies hurt when we need to do one
It’s hard to keep a good burp down
Sooner or later they head uptown

Some burps are short and some are long
Some burps are quiet and others are strong
After a soda burps can fizz up my nose
Other burps feel like I’ll explode

Chorus:

We have burps in the morning
We have burps at night
You can hear them
But they’re out of sight

We have burps in our tummy
They’re having a fight
You can feel them
When you hold your tummy tight

We have burps, burps, burps
We have burps, burps, burps
We have burps, burps, burps
We have burps, burps, burps
Excuse me.

You’re sitting at your table during lunchtime
Got pepperoni pizza, tastes just fine
Talking to a friend eating soup with a slurp
You start talking and out pops a burp

Since we all burp and we always will
Use good manners when burps go uphill
Keep them quiet, hold your lips tightly
And if a burp slips out, say “Excuse Me”

Chorus
