  The Food Cycle

(to the tune of Candy Man)
Words by Suzy Red's Workshop Pariticpants
for Travis Williams...who remembers


 
What can make its own food  (echo)
By taking in the light?  (echo)

Using CO2 and water

Helps them make their food for life.

The producers do.

Yes, the producers do.

All these fit together

Each one having its own part

To make the world go round.

What eats only green leaves (echo)
Growing in the sun?  (echo)

They eat up all the plants

And spit out all the ants.

Yes, the herbivores do.

All these fit together

Each one having its own part

To make the world go round.

What eats only animals  (echo)
Running free and wild? (echo)

They eat up all the meat

And think it's such a treat!

The carnivores do.

Yes, the carnivores do.

All these fit together

Each one having its own part

To make the world go round.

What eats plants and animals. (echo)
Both of them will do. (echo)

Doesn't matter which

They like them just as much as you.

The omnivores do.

Yes, the omnivores do.

All these fit together

Each one having its own part

To make the world go round.

What can feed on dead things.  (echo)
Rot, decay, and wastes?  (echo)

Lots of fun to look at

But not much fun to taste

Decomposers do.

Yes, the decomposers do.

All these fit together

Each one having its own part

To make the world go round.
