The Lyrics

As a biologist, I learned early on the mnemonic for remembering basic taxonomic categories: Karl Put Candy On Fred's Good Suit (Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, Species). Thus, related species are put in a genus, and related genera become a family.
We Are Family by Jeff “Dr Chordate” Moran

We are family. Birds of a feather are we.
We are family. All the genera and species.

Ev’ry one can tell we’re related: similarities.
(See!) Like dentition differentiated, Ev’rybody can see.
(All!) All of the other animals, they say, can they be like we.
Let us state taxonomically, we evolved from a family tree.


We are family. Birds of a feather are we.
We are family. All the genera and species.

We all have the same number of toes, Our guts have the same number of parts.
(Brains!) Our brains, kidneys, livers, the same, reproduction and hearts.
(We!) No, we may not look like you, but here is the Golden Rule:
Karl Put Candy On Fred’s Good Suit,
And evolution of the family jewels.

We are family. Birds of a feather are we.
We are family. All the genera and species.
We are family. Birds of a feather are we.
We are family. All the genera and species.
