Put Your Helmet On

I know a kid who’s alive today because he wore his helmet. I don’t like to tell kids what to do, but I don’t mind in this case. I wear one, you should too. And so should your dad – tell him I said so.

It’s a beautiful day, sunny outside
Get out the bike, let’s go for a ride
Fill up the tires, the water bottle too,
Then there’s one more thing to do

You’ve got to put your helmet on, put a lid on it
Your brain’s inside you need every little bit of it
Put your helmet on, strap it on tight
Every single time you go for a ride

If you fall off your bike and the helmet goes crack
That’s okay cause your head’s intact
Put your helmet on, strap it on tight
Everything will be all right

Some kid says that’s just not cool
If you talk like that you’re just a fool
I’ve met a lot of heads, but I never did meet
A head as hard as the street

CHORUS
You’ve got to put your helmet on
You’ve got to put your helmet on
We’re singing you this song
So you will put your helmet on

Put your helmet on, it shows you’re smart
Coz it keeps your head from fallin apart
The helmet is the thing that’s gonna protect
That itty bitty bump sittin’ on your neck

You can buy new clothes, new shoes you bet
But the brain between your ears is the only one you get
All colors all shapes they look so fine
I got dinosaur stickers on mine

Everybody’s wearin’ em everywhere you go
Your teacher and your doctor and old Aunt Flo
Tommy Terry, Joey, Jerry, Peter, Peggy Sue
Don’t forget Dad, he’s got brains too

CHORUS
