I went into a cell, to get out of the rain,
........C ........................................­G ...........C
and there was the gatekeeper, the cell membrane.
I went into a cell, and what did I see, the mitochondria, it's the energy factory.
I went into a cell, and said "who drives this bus" and found myself talking to the boss, the nucleus.
I went into a cell, to recover from a spasm, and found myself swimming in some clear cytoplasm.

I went into the nucleus to ask how to get home, and got genetic info, stored in a chromosome.
I went into a cell, and stretching o' so far, was a thin and wavy network, it's called the E.R.
I went into a cell, trying not to be perplexed, by the packaging and sorting in the Golgi complex.
I went into a cell, and said "who makes proteins here?" and somebody responded "it's the ribosome, my dear."
I went into a cell, and was feeling pretty fine, till a lysosome engulfed me, and dissolved me in enzymes.
I went into a cell, and was feeling pretty nimble, till a centriole lassoed me, tying me up in a spindle.

I went into a plant cell to see how trees get so tall, and all around the outside was a rigid cell wall.
I went into a plant cell, "why's it so green I asked?" "'Cause I make food from sunlight," said a green chloroplast.
I went into a plant cell to see how plant cells store food, when a vacuole informed me that he was the storage dude.

So when you go inside a cell, remember what you see, There's over a trillion cells in both you and me.
Just sing this song if you ever feel confusion, and remember active transport is the opposite of diffusion.
