Tonight we're turning up the heat -- with a song about SWEAT!

Where to Listen



>> RACHEL: Welcome back to Chompers, your morning and night toothbrushing show! It’s Body Systems Week and tonight we have another song, this time about something your Integumentary system can do.

But first, time to get to brushing! Make tiny circles with your brush around each tooth.  

>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 brush!



And remember, listen carefully for the bell…


>> RACHEL: ...and when you hear it, switch your brushing! 

Outside it is so so hot…. 

the sidewalk is like a stove.

My face is getting damp,

my arms pits are wet,

even my knees are feeling soaked.

What is this pouring out of me

I’m like an ice cube, melting down in the heat

But just when I feel like it’s a million zillion degrees

I start to cool down when I feel a light breeze


>> RACHEL: Baby that’s sweat

That’s how it works

When the temperature rises

It comes leakin’ out of you

Your skin gets wet

And the air feels cool 

It’s the next best thing if you can’t jump in the pool


>> RACHEL: Now not every animal sweats

That’s a special treat that humans get

So when a cat gets hot it licks its fur

And when a pig gets hot it rolls in muddy dirt!


>> RACHEL: Baby that’s sweat

That’s how it works.



>> RACHEL: That's it for Chompers today. All you have to do now is...

>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 spit!


>> RACHEL: Chompers is a production of Gimlet Media.
