Food Chains

Food Chains Lyrics ~ Mister C

It’s ecosystems time, let’s focus on food chains.

Chorus

When you have a food chain, it’s really neat,

The energy flows to the top of the chain endlessly.

When you have a food chain, oh you will see,

Organisms eat one another, for energy.

 

A simple food chain might sound like this,

You’ve got grass on the bottom, mice eating the grass,

Snakes eating the mice, which the owls are gonna catch.

We’ve got a food chain going, oh can’t you see,

The energy travels up the food pyramid, constantly.

 

When you have a food chain, it’s really neat,

The energy flows to the top of the chain endlessly.

When you have a food chain, oh you will see,

Organisms eat one another, for energy.

 

Consumers, consumers, are things that eat.

In order to grow, they need energy.

We can classify consumers into three different types,

You have omnivores, that eat everything,

And carnivores which prefer the meat,

And munching on the grass you’ve got herbivores.

These three picky eaters always looking for more!

 

When you have a food chain, it’s really neat,

The energy flows to the top of the chain endlessly.

When you have a food chain, oh you will see,

Organisms eat one another, for energy.

 

Producers, producers, they make their own food.

Photosynthesis is the job that they do.

Producers are plants on the bottom of each chain.

From the sun is where they get their energy.

 

When you have a food chain, it’s really neat,

The energy flows to the top of the chain endlessly.

When you have a food chain, oh you will see,

Organisms eat one another, for energy.

 

Decomposers have such a dirty job.

They eat dead animals all day long.

They’re bacteria, and they help us all,

Putting nutrients back in the soil for the plants to grow strong.

Decomposers breakin’ poopie down,

Decomposers are found, all around.

Mushrooms and worms, and fungus too,

They’re decomposers that help me and you.

 

When you have a food chain, it’s really neat,

The energy flows to the top of the chain endlessly.

When you have a food chain, oh you will see,

Organisms eat one another, for energy.

 

Without food chains it will be a sad place

We would not have any food to put on our plates.

Think of the burger that you had for lunch.

It once was a cow that used to munch

On grass, to get, it’s energy.

And the grass got its’ energy from the sun you see.

We’re part of the food chain, yes me and you.

We’re part of the food chain, there’s nothing you can do.

 

When you have a food chain, it’s really neat,

The energy flows to the top of the chain endlessly.

When you have a food chain, oh you will see,

Organisms eat one another, for energy.

 

So hopefully, you’ve learned some new and different things

like producers and consumers are found in food chains.

Omnivores, herbivores and carnivores,

They eat each other in this certain order.

We have producers on the bottom of the chain,

Then first level consumers come eat them away,

Then second level consumers come eat the first.

Think about it, that’s exactly how a food chain works.

 

Yeah, when you have a food chain, it’s really neat,

The energy flows to the top of the chain endlessly.

When you have a food chain, oh you will see,

Organisms eat one another, for energy.
