That's Botany

That's Botany

Listen Now!

That's Botany
00:00 / 01:02


Sing Along Now!


Plant life grows with the help of the sun
That light energy to make a chemical reaction
Add minerals and water so plants can exist
Through a process called photosynthesis

Oh that's so botanical
It's a plant process, photosynthesis

Chlorophyll makes a leaf green
It captures sunlight for energy
Add C02 and water, then you know
Chloroplasts make sugar so a plant can grow


Stoma are holes a leaf has everywhere
Breathing carbon dioxide gas
Out of the air
Through the holes breathing out what we breathe in
Making' 02 for me and you,
They give us oxygen


A typical life, when plants reproduce
They grow a stem, roots, shoots,
Leaves. flowers and the fruits
Microscopic plankton or monkey puzzle trees
To study plants, that's Botany

Oh, that's so botanical
It's a plant study of a plant you see

That's Botany
