lyrics

Coniferous trees, as you might have known
Reproduce by growing little seeds inside of a cone
Coniferous trees grow around the world
And the tallest living thing on The Earth is a coniferous tree

In case you're curious, Molly [Oh!]
That's a coast redwood, or a sequoia tree,
It's grown out there in California USA
[Hey, thanks for the information]
You're welcome, you're welcome
It's 379 feet tall [not bad]
Yeah, it's tall

Coniferous trees [coniferous trees], so some folks believe
[Yeah, I've seen those people]
Don't have leaves because they have needles
But guess what? Their needles are actually leaves
It's just a different kind of a leaf
Coniferous trees grow around the world
And the oldest living thing on The Earth is a coniferous tree
[And what is that?]
Well, a tree? It's like a big, woody plant-like thing...
[No, I mean, like]
Oh, the oldest thing? [Yeah]
The oldest thing is a bristlecone pine tree
That's grown out there in California
It's over 4,800 years old
[You checked out a book on California, didn't you?]

Coniferous trees [coniferous trees], I just got that
Nicknamed 'evergreens' [they don't eat meat, do they?]
No, those are carnivorous trees [oh, OK]
On account of their tendency, year round, to keep their leaves.
See I told you they had leaves! [Yep]
Coniferous trees grow around the world
And if you ask me
One of the coolest kind of trees on The Earth is tree coniferous tree
{One more time!}
