Mitosis

words and music by Greg Crowther


Lyrics

Mitosis is a process (mitosis is a process)
By which a cell divides (by which a cell divides) --
A sequence of four phases (a sequence of four phases)
By which it must abide (by which it must abide).

CHORUS:
Prophase, metaphase, anaphase, telophase.
(Prophase, metaphase, anaphase, telophase.)
Prophase, metaphase, anaphase, telophase.
(Prophase, metaphase, anaphase, telophase.)

Now prophase is the first phase (now prophase is the first phase):
The chromosomes appear (the chromosomes appear).
In metaphase, they line up (in metaphase, they line up)
At the middle of the sphere (at the middle of the sphere).

CHORUS

The chromosomes are split up (the chromosomes are split up)
As anaphase goes by (as anaphase goes by),
And telophase then seals 'em (and telophase then seals 'em)
In brand-new nuclei (in brand-new nuclei).

CHORUS


Comments

This song is a call-and-response number. The teacher or song leader sings a line, and then the students or chorus members echo that same line.
