"Telegraph Line" is a song in Schoolhouse Rock!, which can be seen in Science Rock. The song teaches us about the nervous system. It is sung by Jaime Aff (both as the mail boy and as one of the refrain singers) and Christine Langner (as both the one saying the spoken lines about specific parts of the nervous system and the other refrain singer).

Lyrics

Dit dittle dittle dit Dit dittle dittle dit Dittle dittle dit dit!

There's a telegram for you ma'am, And the message is clear. It says there's something bugging you And buzzing in your ear. The results can be quite itchy So what is your reply? Tell your arm to swat that fly!

Hey, there's a telegraph line, You got yours and I got mine. It's called the nervous system, And everybody understands Those telegram commands And you know that everybody better listen!

The central nervous system Is the brain and the spine. The brain controls the system And the spine is the line. Telegrams come in To tell what's happening to you,Then telegrams go out To tell your body what to do.

Dit dittle dittle dit Dit dittle dittle dit Dit dittle dittle dit

There's a telegram for you sir, Better read it on the spot. It says your hand is near a stove That's very, very hot. The results can be quite painful, And there's no time to think, Quick! Pull that hand away, and get it to the sink!

There's a telegraph line, You got yours and I got mine. It's called the nervous system, And everybody understands Those telegram commands And you know that everybody better listen!

Your peripheral nerves, They go all out, Delivering those messages Your senses send out. From your hearing and touch To your sight and taste and smell, They let your brain react To all the messages they tell.

Dit dittle dittle dit Dit dittle dittle dit Dit dittle dittle dit

There's a telegram for you, kid, And it's at an awful time. It says you've got to go on stage And you forgot your lines You're gonna be embarrassed, 'Cause this telegram's a rush. Your heart starts beatin' faster and you blush!

Hey, there's a telegraph line, You got yours and I got mine. It's called the nervous system, And everybody understands Those telegram commands And you know that everybody better listen!

The autonomic system Has a hold of you, Controlling automatically, Some things that you do. Your breathing and your heartbeat Just go on naturally And when you're scared, you're nerves Rev up the speed!
