Food Chain



LYRICS

Who eats what,
And what eats who?
Who eats me?
And what eats you?
I got some news,
It’s not a game,
We’re all just links,
 In the food chain!

Where do we get,
Our Energy,
By eating food we catch and see…
Plants and meat,
They both contain,
Energy for the food chain!
Energy for the food chain!

Mama said, you better watch out,
 Brown bear is hungry and he’s prancing all about…
Mama said, you better watch out,
 Brown bear is hungry and he’s prancing all about…
  But I went outside anyway
And I met the bear that very day,
Yes, I went outside anyway,
And the bear wasn’t really hungry that day…

‘Cause the bear ate the fox,
And the fox ate the rabbit,
And the rabbit ate a plant
That made its own food!
‘Cause the bear ate the fox,
And the fox ate the rabbit,
And the rabbit ate a plant
That made its own food!

(A producer makes its own food)

 

Who eats what,
And what eats who?
Who eats me?
And what eats you?
I got some news,
It’s not a game,
We’re all just links,
 In the food chain!

Producers
Like things we sow,
Those use
Sun and water to grow!
What they do?
We can conclude,
Use photosynthesis
To make their food…

Mama said, you better watch out,
 Shark is hungry and she’s swimming all about…
Mama said, you better watch out,
 Shark is hungry and she’s swimming all about…
   But I hit the water, anyway
And, I met the shark that very day,
  Yes, I hit the water anyway
but the shark wasn’t really hungry that day…

‘Cause the shark ate the big fish,
Who’d eaten a small fish,
Who’d eaten the plankton!
That made its own food…
‘Cause the shark ate the big fish,
Who’d eaten a small fish,
Who’d eaten the plankton!
That made its own food…

(Phytoplankton makes its own food)

Who eats what,
And what eats who?
Who eats me?
And what eats you?
I got some news,
It’s not a game,
We’re all just links,
 In the food chain!

Consumers hunt, and some they graze,
Some are predators,
Some are prey…
What they do?
They eat you see,
Need food for their energy!
Need food for their energy!

  Mama said, you better watch out,
 Lion’s hungry and he’s sniffing all about…
Mama said, you better watch out,
Lion’s hungry and he’s sniffing all about…

But I ran in the grasslands anyway
And I met the lion that very day,
  Yes, I ran the grasslands anyway
And the lion wasn’t really hungry that day…

‘Cause the lion ate a cheetah,
That had eaten a gazelle,
That had grazed upon some grass!
That had  made its own food…
‘Cause the lion ate a cheetah,
That had eaten gazelle,
That had grazed upon some grass!
That had made its own food…
(A producer makes its own food)

 Who eats what,
And what eats who?
Who eats me?
And what eats you?
I got some news,
It’s not a game,
We’re all just links,
 In the food chain!
