Rap: In the Tundra



Here are the words:


" hey Phil I'm cold how about you.
I'm chillin, hey is that a Ice Cap
*slurp* what?
Where are we?"

In the tundra
where it's 30 below
In the tundra
it's to cold to snow
In the tundra
chilling with the caribou
In the tundra
there isn't that much to do

The tundra biome is very severe
its located in the northern hemisphere
the winters are very dark and cold
plus the freezing winds are very bold

the ground is covered with permafrost
no plants can grow in winter till that ice de thaws
in the winter you wont see many trees
cause the temperature is - 30 degrees

but just soon as spring comes around
you'll see some movement on the ground
and when the sun comes up a little later
this bit of rock and soils is the active layer

but the sun only melt a bit of the snow
cause you only got 10 inches to grow

the permafrost keep the moisture in
plants can grow and balance everything

In the tundra
where it's 30 below
In the tundra
it's to cold to snow
In the tundra
chilling with the caribou
In the tundra
there isn't that much to do

So the food chain starts off, a little like this
the bacteria and fungi reminisce
the grass and the larvae feed off of it
and if it weren't for this , things wouldn't exist primary consumers like the caribou,
the musk ox hares and lemmings too

they eat the grass that they can find
but they better take a second look behind

cause there a predator waiting by the side
and if you don't be carful it'll tan your hide
but you gotta look on the brighter side
cause you're the bait it needs to survive

the predators are the next on the list
here are the animals it consists
there's arctic wolves and polar bears
you can see these creatures where?

In the tundra
where it's 30 below
In the tundra
it's to cold to snow
In the tundra
chilling with the caribou
In the tundra
there isn't that much to do

the reason why all of these animals migrate
is so that they can get together so they can mate
all they got to do is get in the mood
"Bow Chicka wow" a baby caribou

so don't be afraid when the ground starts to shake
it's about time that the animal awake
in the late winter and early spring
all the creatures come back so they can do their thing

In the tundra
where it's 30 below
In the tundra
it's to cold to snow
In the tundra
chilling with the caribou
In the tundra
there isn't that much to do

in the summer the temperature stays just right
because the sun is out all day and night.
10 degrees for the plants are fine
cause the leaves are pointed at the sun all the time

but then when fall rolls around
all the little creatures sleep in holes in the ground

cause winter is creeping up from behind
once it hits sun won't be able to shine

all the pesticides that the south be using
they cant comprehend , how they're abusing
the humans be hating they be spilling the oil
but before you know it the tundras gonna spoil.

So all you oil diggers you better listen
your destroying the animals ecosystem
so all the creatures who fear life in the dark
lets round them all up to a national park

In the tundra
where it's 30 below
In the tundra
it's to cold to snow
In the tundra
chilling with the caribou
In the tundra
there isn't that much to do

In the tundra
where it's 30 below
In the tundra
write your name in the snow
In the tundra
chilling with the caribou
In the tundra
I guess there's a lot to do
