Lyrics:

[David Attenborough]
How could one species turn into another?

[Richard Dawkins]
How is it that we find ourselves surrounded by such complexity, such elegance?

[Bill Nye]
The genes of you and me
They’re all made of DNA
We’re all made of the same chemicals
DNA – we’re all made of DNA

[Attenborough]
Only the fittest survive
And that is the key
Natural Selection
That is the key

[Dawkins]
We are surrounded by endless forms
Most beautiful, most wonderful
Evolution – the greatest show on Earth

There is grandeur in this view of life
Evolution – the greatest show on Earth

[Attenborough]
The history of life can be thought of
As a many branched tree
The five kingdoms of life
were established early on

Bacteria
Protists- amoeba like creatures
Fungi
Plants
And animals

[Dawkins]
We find ourselves perched on one tiny twig
In the midst of a blossoming tree of life

[refrain]

We are surrounded by millions of other species
Walking, flying, burrowing, stalking, chasing, fleeing,
Outpacing

[Attenborough]
Animals strive to reach this one ultimate goal
To ensure the survival of the next generation
This one ultimate goal
To pass on their genes
That is what life is all about

[refrain]

[Dawkins]
As we look back on the history of life
We see a picture of never ending,
ever rejuvinating novelty

[Attenborough]
Those animals may seem to us to be very remote,
strange, even fantastic

But all of us alive today
Owe our very existence to them

  1. Muito linda… e reflete a maravilha que é a vida… E mesmo sendo a vida uma maravilha… Ela é tão pequena diante do Universo… E se não me engano foi o Sagan que disse certa vez que nós somos uma maneira do Universo se autoconhecer…
