DNA is an original ukulele song I wrote for an SDP 9th grade honors biology project at my school. I love school and I work hard, but I hate homework. So, when my teacher gave us the option to write a song as part of a science presentation, I was very excited because I love to write songs!

I got to perform this song for my entire science class as part of my presentation and I was very happy to get an A on my biology project!

Lyrics for this original song:

There are two types of genes in DNA
Dominant and recessive are their names
You are more likely to get dominant genes from your parents
Traits are passed to every offspring, yeah, you inherit

Maybe you’ve got brown hair from your mom
Or maybe you didn’t get those freckles from your dad that you really want
Some things like acne and oily skin are passed down
And you’ll wish you didn’t have those around
You might wonder why you look the way you do
Blue, green, hazel, brown eyes, just to name a few
You might wonder why you look like your mom and dad

Phenotypes and genotypes, you will get
Physical traits and genes are genetic

DNA is contained in chromosomes
They carry genetic material, don’t ya know?
Coding is completed by your genes
In the nucleus, where they make protein
