 Life Science Chapter 3b Ė Song Lyrics

 

Back At The Start (Little Things and Big Things)††††††††††††††††††††

 

If I was one cell

you could ignore me

Ďcos one cell is too hard to see

with your eyes.

But just like everybody

Iím one, two, four,

then Iím eight, sixteen,

then a hundred trillion pieces of me.

But still you donít seeÖ

 

Öthat my cells work together to make

tissues work together to make

organs like my heart

but you tear it up Ďtil Iím right back at the start!

Yeah, Iím right back at the start.

 

 

Right back, I started with one cell,

but Iíve broken free

Ďcos one cell was too hard to see

with your eyes.

But just like everybody

Iím more than just the parts in me.

 

And your cells work together to make

tissues work together to make

organs like your eyes

but you still canít see me no matter how I try.

 

 

I can live on my own, but I donít want to live alone. (repeat)

[cells, tissues, organs, organ systems, (multicellular) organisms] (repeat underneath)

 

 

Iím a multicellular organism,

looking in on your organ systems

but I still canít find your heart

and Iíve looked so close that Iím right back at the start!

Yeah Iím right back at the start!

Yeah Iíve gone too far, now Iím right back at the start!

 

I can live on my own, but I donít want to live alone.

[cells, tissues, organs, organ systems, organisms]
