They Might Be Giants C Is For Conifers Lyrics

Most with cones for seeds, most with needles for leaves

C is for conifers, my kind of trees

Large junipers and fir, spruce, cedars and pines

C is for conifers, more then five hundred kinds

If you see a Christmas tree or a stack of newspapers or a 2×4 frame of a house

It’s probably made from pine trees and pine trees are conifers, that’s what this song is about

Or if you see a plant in the shape of an elephant, or in the shape of a dog

It’s probably a shrub, a conifer shrub pruned into that shape by someone

Most with cones for seeds, most with needles for leaves

C is for conifers, my kind of trees

Large junipers and fir, spruce, cedars and pines

C is for conifers, more then five hundred kinds

Spoken: There are so many different kinds of conifer trees.

This is just a few of them: Spruce,

Hemlocks, larch, cyprus, juniper,

Fir, Douglas fir, cedar, yew,

Pine, the dwarf conifer,

And the great California sequoia redwood.

Most with cones for seeds, most with needles for leaves

C is for conifers, my kind of trees

Large junipers and fir, spruce, cedars and pines

C is for conifers, more then five hundred kinds
