The song is played in the United States mainly on New Year's Eve. The version you are hearing today is by the Washington Saxophone Quartet.

We sometimes say the lion is "the king of the jungle" because it is stronger and more dangerous than the other animals. It can run faster than most other animals and it can hunt the best. The lion is the highest animal in the land food chain. It can run faster than most other sea animals. It can also use its big teeth to catch other sea animals and eat them.
What is at the top of the world's food chain? People are! We are not the biggest or fastest, but we are the cleverest. We could not run faster than most animals, so we invented cars and now we can move the fastest. We could not fight better than a lion, so we invented guns. Now we can hunt the best.
People's inventions are clever, but they can be dangerous, too. For example, many years ago in Inner Mongolia, people used guns to kill a lot of wild wolves(狼). The wild wolves usually eat wild rabbits. But in recent years, the number of wild rabbits is becoming bigger and bigger because the number of wild wolves is getting smaller and smaller. Much of the grassland became desert because it was seriously destroyed by the rabbits.
Remember that we are a part of the food chain, so we are in danger, too! If we protect animals, we are protecting ourselves.

Do you use your right hands more or left hands more? Very few of us use both of our hands well. Most people use right hands. Only about five people of a hundred use left hands. New-born babies can take things with either of their hands, but in about two years, they like to use their right hands. Scientists don't know why this happens. They've studied it. They think our animal ancestors used their right hands, this may not be true. Monkeys are our closest relations in the animal world. Scientists have found that monkeys like to use one of their hands more than the other ---- but it can be either hand. There are as many right-handed monkeys as the left-handed ones. Next time you visit the zoo and watch the monkeys carefully. You'll see that some of them will use their right hands and others will use their left hands. But men use their right hands better and this makes life difficult for the left-handed ones. We live in a right-handed world.
Some scientists have found out that more of successful people are left-handed, but they don't know why. But they are working hard to discover the secret.
61. Very few of us use both of our hands.
62. About 5% people use their left hands.
63. The left-handed live easily because most people use their left hands.
64. New-born babies use their right hands more.
65. Scientists don't know the reason why more of successful people are left-handed.

Blood Donation (献血)
A grown-up person has ten or eleven pints (品脱) of blood inside his or her body. We can lose a pint of blood without feeling anything, but if we lose too much blood, we feel weak and cold. Our faces become pale ( 苍白). We may die. This is what often happens when somebody is hurt in an accident, or a soldier is hurt in a war. Many people used to die in this way. But today they can be taken to hospital and given more blood. Almost at once they feel better. Their faces are no longer pale. They do not die.
Where does this blood come from? People who are healthy may donate blood to a blood bank so that it can be used to save people's lives. When they go to donate blood, a special kind of needle(针) is put into the arm. It does not hurt. The blood runs through the needle and through a rubber tube(橡胶管) into a bottle or a bag. A pint of blood is taken this way. The person who has given blood drinks a cup of tea or coffee and rests for a few minutes, then he feels quite well. And he may give his blood like this three months later.
A person who gives blood feels happy, because he knows that his blood will be used to someone's life. Perhaps one day he himself will need blood.
When you are older, you may give blood, too. But you can't do this until you are eighteen.

The lecture(讲座) on 81 (smoke) was over at last. While we boys 82 (rush) towards the play ground, Jim passed by the table. The watch, which Mrs Smith had lain on the table when she started her lecture, disappeared ( 不见了 ).
We were going back for class again when the headmaster 83 (call) us together and said, "I've got a little job for you boys. Mrs Smith has just lost her watch on the playground. This kind of thing 84 (happen) before. " he said, "It just fell off her wrist (手腕). So, look around for it, will you? 85 (see) if you're clever enough for it. You 86 (get) a useful reward(奖赏)."
At once we started looking for the watch. Everybody wished to be the lucky one. Suddenly, Jim 87 (stop) and bent(湾) down as if to pick up something. And the next moment he was in front of Mrs Smith, all smiles, turning in the watch to her.
Mrs Smith, however, 88 (not be) pleased at all. In fact, she looked angry. She took the watch without even a "Thank you."
Jim got his reward ---- a large piece of paper from the headmaster. He told Jim 89 (write) a composition on the danger of smoking. What 90 (can) poor Jim write about? He hadn't listened to the lecture and had nothing to say on the lecture.
