1. Energy from the Sun flows through us all,
Every form of life, both big and small.
2. Light, plus 2 H2O, plus CO2
Makes C6H12O6, plus O2.
3. Plants take water, plus carbon dioxide
And they make oxygen, and food besides.
4. We’re all part of the web of life on Earth,
We’re connected to all things from our birth.
