    Introduction to a song...

    Our parish priest is leaving soon and as a tribute, and to get the kids and adults in the community involved, we're doing the Body Song (lyrics below). However, I can't come up with an introduction for the song. Can someone help me connect it? To make sense as to why we're doing this item in relation to Father/priest/church/community/etc.? Thank you.

    I am the eye but I canít think
    That belongs to my friend the brain

    (sons)
    I fritter-fratter-frit, fritter-fratter-frit
    Iím the brain with electric current patter pit
    Iím the brain, I can think and learn it bit by bit
    yes, I fritter-fratter-fritter all the time

    (dads)
    I go lub-dub, lub-dub I go
    I am the heart I pump like so
    Iím bringing life to all the parts
    I am consistent, Iím the heart

    (moms)
    Iím swinging, Iím swinging
    Swinging on lifeís merry way
    Iím the arm, Iím the arm
    Iím bringing grace to all

    We donít.. miss much
    Hearing all the time

    (everyone)
    We are the body of Christ, we are the body of Christ
    Together bringing His love to the world
    We are the body of Christ, we are the body of Christ
    Together bringing His love to the world

    We work together! We work together! We do it with cooperation
    We work together! We work together! We do it with cooperation!

    Why not sing "Faith of Our Fathers" and then not worry about why you have to explain it?

    Or any other adult hymn. Then you don't have to explain why your choice of songs is similar to a nursery rhyme.

    This is my opinion. No offense meant to any other faiths or to the people who run this website.
