If Hammerstein Was A Chemist

Listen to mp3 .........*credits*

Halides in white salts and atoms in kittens,

Bright copper sulfate and thick safety mittens,

Big helium balloon shapes tied up with strings,

These are a few of my favorite things.

Cream-coloured sulfur and crisp flakes of osmium,

Tin plates and gold plates and compounds with indium,

Wild sparks that fly off our flasks on the rings,

These are a few of my favorite things.

Zinc on auto cars without rusty rashes,

Dry ice that freezes my nose and eyelashes,

Silvery white crystals that melt into springs,

These are a few of my favorite things.

When the dog bites

When the bee stings

When I'm feeling sad

I simply remember my favorite things

Science doesn't feel so bad.
