You Gotta Have Skin

You Gotta Have Skin
(Alan Sherman)

You gotta have skin,
All you really need is skin
Skin's the thing that if you've got it outside
It helps keep your insides in

It covers your nose,
And it's wrapped around your toes
And inside it you put lemon meringue
And outside, you hang your clothes

     Skin is what you feel at home in
     And without it, furthermore
     Both your liver and abdomen
     Would keep falling on the floor
     (And you'd be dressed in your intestine)

A Siamese twin
Needs an extra set of skin
And when the doctor knows that you're feelin' sick
Where does he stick his needle in?
In the end of your skin
