I’ve got a holey shoe and a holey sleeve
I’ve got some holey knees that let in the breeze
I’ve got a holey sock, in fact I’ve got two
I only hope that there’s no extra holes in you
I’ve got a holey head, in fact I’ve got several
They’re important to my health
You could say they’re essential!
I use them to see with, to eat, hear and breathe with.
I use them to sing with too!!
Sometimes when I’m careless and a little bit reckless,
I fall on my knees and it’s not exactly painless
The holes in my knees and the holes in my hands
Have Band-Aids on to keep my holes from the sand CH
So if you’ve got a hole in your clothes or skin
Remember that you cannot throw a hole in the bin!
None of us are perfect, we’ve got holes everywhere
All we can do is mind our holes with care CH
Well holy I’m not, but I try to be good
Just like the good Lord said I should.
