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 than five hundred kinds

If you see a Christmas tree or a stack
Of newspapers or a 2 by 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 than five hundred kinds

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 than five hundred kinds
