Science Song Lyrics and Sound Clip
J.P. Taylor

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

A celebration and explanation of the animal kingdom and how its members are alike and quite different form one another.  Kids learn about herbivores, carnivores, and omnivores, too.


A long time ago, scientists decided
To put all the living things into cat-e-gor-ies
Now animals are one, of several different kingdoms
Of living things on Earth, and here’s their story


An-i-mal-i-a, the kingdom of the animals
Jellyfish and whales are swimming in the sea
Birds fly in the air, rabbits run all over
(You can) find them anywhere, wherever you may be

La – la – la – la – la, La – la – la – la – la
La – la – la – la – la, La – la – la – la – la

Some animals have bones inside their bodies
And others have a skeleton on the outside
Some don’t have either one; they’re just kind of mushy
They come in every shape, they come in every size!


When animals need food, most have to go and get it
Sometimes they hunt it down like a carnivore
And herbivores eat plants, just a grazin’ and a chewin’
And omnivores eat lots of things, like bugs and seeds and more!


Now people don’t have scales, and fish they don’t have feathers
And worms they don’t have bones like you and me
But we’re all part of the animal kingdom
There are lots of different ways to be an animal you see!
