Mitochondria, what are they?
Do they splash in a watery bay?
By the light of a Nucleus, play?
Mitochondria what are you?
What do you sing? What do you do?
How to you put the spring in each step
of each little cell from down in its depth?
Mitochondria what do you say?
Tell me your secret. Don't go away.
I will shrink small and we will have tea.
Just your little self and mere little me.
I'll learn your language, You'll teach me to run.
Mitochondria, you know, I think it'd be fun.
