Roots, Stems, Leaves
Song for Teaching the Parts of a Plant
The Banana Slug String Band


The Banana Slug String Band performs this song on Dirt Made My Lunch


CHORUS:
Roots, stems, leaves, flowers, fruits and seeds
Roots, stems, leaves, flowers, fruits and seeds
Roots, stems, leaves, flowers, fruits and seeds
Roots, stems, leaves, flowers, fruits and seeds
That's six parts, six parts, six plant parts that people need.

The roots hold the plant in the ground,
They gather up the water that falls around.
And there's a root inside of me
Because a carrot is a root that I eat.
That's six parts, six parts, six plant parts that people need

A stem is an elevator growing up from the ground,
The water goes up and the sugar back down
And there's a stem inside of me
Because celery is a stem that I eat

The leaves are the kitchens where the food is done
They breathe the air and catch rays from the sun.
And there's a leaf inside of me
Because lettuce is a leaf that I eat.

CHORUS

The flowers are dressed so colorfully,
They hold the pollen and attract the bees.
And there's a flower inside of me
Because cauliflower is a flower I eat

The fruit gets ripe, then falls on down
It hold the seeds and feeds the ground.
And there's a fruit inside of me
Because an apple is a fruit that I eat.

CHORUS

The seeds get buried in the earth,
And the cycle starts again with a new plant's birth.
And there are seed inside of me
Because sunflower is a seed that I eat.

Now you know what this whole world needs,
It's roots, stems, leaves, flowers, fruits and seeds.
There's six plant parts inside of me
Because a garden salad is what I eat.

CHORUS
