Versuri They Might Be Giants - Meet the Elements

Album: They Might Be Giants - Here Comes Science (2009)

Iron is a metal
You see it every day
Oxygen eventually
Will make it rust away
Carbon in it's ordinary form is coal
Crush it together and diamonds are born

Come on come on and meet the elements
May I introduce you to our friends the elements?
Like a box of paints that are mixed to make every shade
They either combine to make a chemical compound
Or stand alone as they are

Neon's the gas that lights up the sign for a pizza place
The coins that you pay with are copper, nickel and zinc
Silicon and oxygen make concrete, bricks and glass
Now add some gold and silver for some pizza place class

Come on come on and meet the elements
I think you should check out the ones they call the elements
Like a box of paints that are mixed to make every shade
They either combine to make a chemical compound
Or stand alone as they are

Team up with other elements
Making compounds when they combine
Or make up a simple element
Formed out of atoms of the one kind.

Balloons are full of helium
And so is every star
Stars are mostly hydrogen
Which may someday fuel your car

Hey who let in all these elephants?
Did you know that elephants are made of elements?
Elephants are mostly made of four elements
And every living thing is mostly made of four elements
Plants, bugs, birds, fish, bacteria and men
Are mostly carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen and oxygen

Come on come on and meet the elements
You and I are complicated but we're made of elements
Like a box of paints that are mixed to make every shade
They either combine to make a chemical compound
Or stand alone as they are

Team up with other elements
Making compounds when they combine
Or make up a simple element
Formed out of atoms of the one kind.

Come on come on and meet the elements
Check out the ones they call the elements
Like a box of paints that are mixed to make every shade
They either combine to make a chemical compound
Or stand alone as they are
