Plants and Animals


Listen to this song


From a mountain to a river to the ocean to a stream,
From a desert to a marsh to almost any place I’ve seen,
If it’s wet or if it’s dry, hot or cold, high or low,
You’ll find plants and animals wherever you go.
 
There are plants and animals,
There are plants and animals,
There are plants and animals
Inhabiting the earth.
 
From the grass to a flower to some moss to a tree
Most plants stay rooted and never ever leave.
From a rabbit to a dolphin to a kitten to a hound,
Most animals you see like to move around.
 
There are plants and animals,
There are plants and animals,
There are plants and animals
Inhabiting the earth.
 
Plant roots take minerals and water from the soil. Then they go
Up the plant’s stem to help the plant to grow.
Green leaves use the sunlight for energy,
While animals get energy from the food they eat.
 
There are plants and animals,
There are plants and animals,
There are plants and animals
Inhabiting the earth.
 
Sometimes animals help plants, like when birds spread their seeds.
A tree might help a bird who builds a nest in its leaves.
Animals compete for food while plants compete for sunlight.
That’s just how they live; it’s not wrong or right.

There are plants and animals,
There are plants and animals,
There are plants and animals
Inhabiting the earth.
