Don’t Forget to Floss



The dentist told me, "Brush your teeth,
and don't forget to floss."
I promised I would do it
and told him, "You're the boss!"

When I got home, I brushed my teeth,
then found the perfect stance.
I swung my hips and swept my arms
as I began to dance.

I wiggled back and forth until
I figured I was through.
I'm really glad the dentist told me
that's what I should do.

Now every time I brush, I floss.
It's fun, but I don't see
how dancing after brushing
can prevent a cavity.
