Handout 2: Decomposition Chorus Lyrics

Is there waste? Well I don't know.

One thing dies to let another grow.

This circle we see most every day.

The name we call it, is decay.

Well come on all you people, gather 'round.

Breakdown and listen... to decomposition.

Group 1: Muncha, muncha, muncha. Muncha, muncha, muncha...

Group 2: Decomposition, decomposition, decomposition...

Group 3: I get down, I break down...

There are many kinds of bugs;

Worms and snails and slimy slugs.

They are useful for me and you;

They help make the soil... renew.

Well come on all you people, gather 'round.

Breakdown and listen... to decomposition.

Group 1: Muncha, muncha, muncha. Muncha, muncha, muncha...

Group 2: Decomposition, decomposition, decomposition...

Group 3: I get down, I break down...

Decomposition is a useful game,

A tree drops its leaves.

But they don't stay the same.

A bug chews them up and spits them back out;

Making the soil for a new tree to sprout.

Well come on all you people, gather 'round.

Breakdown and listen... to decomposition.

Group 1: Muncha, muncha, muncha. Muncha, muncha, muncha...

Group 2: Decomposition, decomposition, decomposition...

Group 3: I get down, I break down...
