Carbon-Based Lifeforms

Carbon-Based Lifeforms

Liner Notes: 

Just an odd children's song Smile


Tweet, tweet, tweet goes the birdy
Meow, meow, meow goes the cat
Wa, wa, wa goes the baby when he’s sad
And Ha, ha, ha goes us when we’re glad
We all say different things,
We all have a voice
Except for jellyfish and other various animals that don’t communicate vocally

Hop, hop, hop goes the frog
Flap, flap, flap goes the turkey
Stomp, stomp, stomp goes us when we’re mad.
And clap, clap, clap when we see something rad.

We all move in different ways,
We all have our own actions
Except for most plants, that generally only grow and minimally move for the sun or rain

Cute and yellow is the baby chick
And every color the chameleon
People are different colors too,
But our planet from space looks blue!

We all look differently
Except when we’re genetically identical
Generalizations never work
Except we’re all carbon-based lifeforms.
Yes, we all are carbon-based lifeforms!

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

I like the series of things then punctuated by the exception. And the ending has a wonderfully nerdy quality about it. As always your beautiful clear soprano shines!

This made me smile the first time I heard it and I'm smiling again. Yes - we are all made of star stuff even though variety is all around...and the spice of life!
