Science Song Lyrics and Sound Clip
The Trigs

This song is available on the Trigs' Ana and the Telophase.

Every living thing is made up of cells
A billion little building blocks that work so well
They make the special proteins and then ship them out
Just think of where you would be if it weren’t for cells

Verse 1
Life is based on cells
From the smallest ant to the biggest elm
They’re the building blocks, they’ve got the DNA
In the nucleus, which is like a big brain
The DNA is the code that tells the cell what to do
but it’s trapped in the nuc’ so what’s a cell to do
It gets translated into RNA
Which is sent out with orders to relay
The ribosomes make proteins from the RNA
Which need to be sent out to the whole body
There’s a shipping apparatus that comes into play
It’s called the Golgi apparatus, which is fun to say
The golgi ships proteins and it ships waste
Through the semi-permeable cell membrane
Which lets some junk in and some junk out
And that’s what the cells are all about

Verse 2
So this whole process takes a lot of energy. Ya
Gotta give props to the mitochondria
They’re the power stations where the energy’s produced 

 When the cells power up, they’re the ones that make the juice
There are different cells for animals and plants
You see one gets their food from chloroplasts
That would be the plant cells, they are autotrophs

Which means that they make their food all on their own
Animal cells well they are heterotrophs
Meaning that their fuel comes from somewhere else
Plants cells are rigid, they have very little give
While animal cells need to be pliable to live
So every living thing on the planet’s got cells
From the smallest bacteria to the biggest killer whale
So all together cells are pretty cool
And just think there are billions of them in you
