Everything Grows

Everything Grows

Listen Now!

Everything Grows
00:00 / 01:23


Sing Along Now!


Everything grows in time and in stages
Look closely and you'll see
Every organism, every cell
Is constantly changing from birth to maturity

Every year with the turn of the season
Green leaves turn to gold
The salmon returns from the sea to fresh water
The tree adds a growth ring and so the cycle unfolds

Now the little tadpole becomes a frog
And moves from the water to the land
A cocoon transforms to a butterfly
Metamorphosis is a change so grand

Human beings, like all other mammals
Need time to develop and grow
With food and shelter and lots of care
We learn through life as we go

It's true that everything must change
It's the way of life you know
It's the way things change and grow
Yeah Yeah

Everything Grows
