LYRICS

Yo, yo listen up. I’m gonna tell you ‘bout the process of photosynthesis.

I’m a tall green plant sitting in the sun, absorbing nutrients and having fun! You may think it’s boring, you may think it’s lame, but I’m a plant and that’s my name. Now, how I got green that’s a story to tell. It’s my little friend called chlorophyll.

Photosynthesis occurs in different types of algae, and it also happens in many plants just like me. Although this can happen in different ways, in other species, some features are the same. This process takes time. It is also an equation. But for it to happen, you will need some hydration. CO2, water, transferred with light, add with sugar with oxygen and it will be alright. Bring me to life.

My leaves are long, my roots are deep. I grow below and underneath. I am a plant and I’m cool like this thanks to photosynthesis!

Photoautotrophs are able to synthesize food, but only if they happen to be in a good mood. They’re a group of organisms, plants, bacteria, and algae are within em’. Roots are oh so important too. They have lots to do. They absorb the water through the tubes, along with different foods. I get my energy from the sun! As I said before, I’m still having fun! Sugar oxygen is so sweet. It’s the plant’s favorite treat. When the sun hits the chloroplasts, that’s the beginning of the process.

My leaves are long, my roots are deep. I grow below and underneath. I am a plant and I’m cool like this thanks to photosynthesis!

Correct me if I’m wrong, because this is the end of the song.
