"Cells, Cells"
Original Rap by Emily Crapnell

Today's the day were gonna learn about the cell
If I teach it okay, you'll know it very well
So listen up 6th graders-
-no room left for haters-
lets talk about the building blocks of life- cells that make us.

Chorus:
Cells, cells they're made of organelles
Try to pull a fast one, the cytoplasm gels
The nucleus takes over controllin' everything
The party don't stop 'till the membrane blocks the scene
Inside the vacuole we can float around for hours
Running round with chloroplasts, lovin' sunlight showers
Cells, cells, they're made of organelles

First things first, there's two different types-
animal and plant cells that make up all life.
The little things that make up microscopic cells,
The main structures- yeah, we call them organelles.
Now let's break it down and get some information-
How do cells work? It's a crazy combination!

-Chorus-

The cell membrane is the border patrol,
Who can cross over? The membrane lets 'em know
The gooey stuff inside, is called the cytoplasm
It holds the organelles- don't worry, plasm-has 'em!
In the middle of the cell you'll find the big brain,
The nucleus surrounded by nuclear membrane
Don't forget the vacuole filled up with water
It's a basic need for life when this rap keeps getting hotter!

-Chorus-

The mitchondria's something every cell needs,
Breaking down the food and releasin' energy.
There's a place inside the cell where chemicals are stored, the squiggly golgi bodies, releasin' even more.
Yo hangin' in the cell is endoplasmic reticulum, synthesizin' enzymes for respiration, and um...
If you still think that this rap is whack, remember ribosomes making proteins gettin' jacked!

-Chorus-

Lookin at the plant cell, weird and green
two more parts is all it takes you see?
Cell wall knows what's up when it comes to keepin' structure
Strong with cellulose, this cell can't get much tougher.
C-H- L-O- R-O -- Plast,
These little green machines are havin' a blast
Photosythenisizing- filled with chlorophyll
-they hit the cell club, runnin' up a high bill-

-Chorus-
