Roots, A Stem and Some Leaves
Science Song Lyrics and Sound Clip
J.P. Taylor

    
This song is available on J.P. Taylor's Singin' Songs of Science 3.

A catchy, tropical-flavored tune that reviews the basic plant parts and also identifies the essential roles played by chlorophyll and carbon dioxide in the process of photosynthesis.

 

If you’re gonna be a plant everybody knows
You’re gonna need the sun to help you grow
And you’re gonna need water that comes with the rain
To fall on down again and again
But that’s not all you need
You’ve gotta have that green stuff in your leaves
And don’t forget that CO2
That comes from lots of things that people do
You know that it’s true
You know that it’s true

(Chorus)
(It’s not just) roots, a stem, and some leaves
There’s a lot more than that a plant really needs
Light and water help you make your own food
But you need chlorophyll and CO2
It’s photosynthesis you do!
You know that it’s true

Now you know most plants they grow in the ground
But that’s not the only place plants can be found
There are some plants that grow in the trees
And there are even some that live in the sea
But even they have the same needs
They gotta have that green stuff in their leaves
And they still need that CO2
That comes from lots of things - and me and you
You know that it’s true
You know that it’s true

(Chorus)

(Yeah it’s not just) roots, a stem, and some leaves
There’s a lot more than that a plant really needs
Light and water help you make your own food
But you need chlorophyll and CO2
It’s photosynthesis you do!
You know that it’s true

(repeat chorus / out)
