Don't Put Your Finger Up Your Nose

by Barry Louis Polisar

Don't put your finger up your nose,
'Cause your nose knows that's not the place it goes.
You can sniffle, you can sneeze,
But I'm asking you--please--
Don't put your finger up your nose.

Don't stick your finger in your ear,
'Cause then your ear will find it hard to hear.
You can thump and you can tug it,
But please don't plug it--
Don't stick your finger in your ear.

Don't put your finger in your eye,
That's not a thing I think you oughta try.
You can blink it, you can wink it,
But I don't think it
Would be good to put your finger in your eye.

And don't stick your finger down your throat.
'Cause that will just make you start to choke.
Then up will come your dinner
And you'll start to look much thinner,
So don't stick your finger down your throat.

Don't put your finger up your nose,
'Cause your nose knows that's not the place it goes.
You can sniffle, you can sneeze,
But I'm asking you, please--
Don't put your finger up your nose.
