You should always thank your toilet.

Believe it or not, the toilet is a very important thing. Why is that? Well, because he, the guy on the corner, is a lifesaver, and where toilets don't exist, thousands die, right? 

Whoever invented this wonderful device, has undoubtedly done a good job - nobody can live without a toilet, isn't that true? Well, if we have to thank the dude who created this friend of ours, we should also thank the Chinese for giving mankind that marvelous invention called toilet paper in 50 B.C.

In the end, it all boils down to excrement anyway. 

Okay, let's stop all this poop talk, shall we? Let’s sing this song. I used it in my lesson today – just for fun, you know... Students laughed a lot and we had a great time. Needless to say that I used it without any academic or pedagogical purposes. 

I am your toilet, so how do you do.
I take away your wee, and the odd number two.

For a quiet moment, I'll always be there.
Bring in your troubles, you don't even have to care.

Oh think about the things you put me through.
(Things you put me through, that have been through you.)

Stuff from your body I'll happily take,
Liquid or solid, whatever you make.

When you think of all the things that I do,
It's time to say thanks to your loo. 

If I wasn't there anymore,
You can only imagine disaster. 

I am a lifesaver and that is not a lie,
Where I don't exist, thousands die.

So next time you have to, do a poo or a wee.
Thank the sanitary saints that you have a me.

When you think of all the things that I do,
It's time, to say thanks to your loo.

La la la la la la la la la la,
La la la la la la laaa
La la la la la laa

It's time to say thank you to your loo.

Did you know that around 700,000 children die every year from diarrhea caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation? - that's almost 2,000 children a day.
