Give Me Some Bones
The first of two bone songs, this song covers a bit of bone physiology and nomenclature for the axial skeleton. The accompanying lyric sheet uses color changes to indicate nomenclature for a new section of the skeleton.
The second of two bone nomenclature songs, this song names the bones of the Appendicular skeleton. There are many elements of the songs that will help you learn the names. There are pauses not only between chorus and verse, but also between sections of verse that cover different parts of the body. Note the break and the musical changes as the words shift from describing the pectoral girdle to describing the arm & wrist bones and then again as the words shift to describing the bones of the hand, etc.
