Versuri They Might Be Giants - Cells

Album: They Might Be Giants - Here Comes Science (2009)

Life is made out of cells – and cells make copies of themselves
And they make copies of themselves – and they make copies of themselves
Different cells have different jobs - but they all have one thing in common
Inside of every cell is a twisted ladder – a recipe for life called DNA
The directions are written out in the ladder’s rungs where they can be found
In every cell of everything that lives
A cell knows what it has to do – to grow into some moss or a shrew
Algae or a kangaroo - Bug or a sunflower
Dwight David Eisenhower - A frog, a fish, or you
Cells are small – too small to see – but together they can make a tree
Within the cell there’s a tiny spiral staircase
That tells the cell just how it’s going to grow
The instructions are spelled out in letters – one on every step
In a language that the cell knows how to read
Inside a cell is a tiny double-helix – another fancy word for DNA
Which could also be a spiral stair case – which could also be
A twisted ladder – which could also be a spring
Which could also be a spiral stair case – which could also be
A twisted ladder – or a crazy looking spring!
