Some advice on getting shots

Just about nobody likes getting shots
Except for one girl, Miss Sylvia Potts

Miss Sylvia’s case is remarkably rare
So I begged her for any advice she might share

With a hand on my shoulder, she leaned in to say
“You need to think bigger than one lousy day”

“There’s magic inside that uncomfortable stick
That helps your body to avoid getting sick”

“If you can withstand that one moment of pain,
Think of the power and strength you will gain!”

I thanked Miss Potts and I went on my way
I’d had quite enough scary talk for one day

But the point she had made was perfectly clear
A few seconds of pain can protect me for years

So the next time I learn that it’s time for a shot
I’ll remember the words of one Sylvia Potts:

“If you can withstand that one moment of pain,
Think of the power and strength you will gain!”
