I'm Atoms (Scientific Cover of Jason Mraz's I'm Yours)

Classroom Material

Well an atom's made of protons, neutrons, and electrons

the first two in the nucleus, the third around it

it's mostly empty space, but it feels solid in any case

The elements are all the different types of atoms

they differ by the number of protons in the middle.

Hydrogen has only one, but Uranium has a ton

It's just chemistry that you and me are made of these atoms

Well atoms bond together to form molecules

Most of what's surrounding me and you

Water, sugar, things yet undreamed of of of of

Look around you, see the combinations in a eucalypt tree

Mendeleev's periodicity

gives us sand and water and the air above ove ove ove ove

It's just chemistry that you and me are made of these atoms:

Hydrogen, Oxygen, Carbon, Nitrogen, make up the world's life forms

Do do do you, do do do do

but do you wonder how

matter forms something strange

when there's a chemical change?

Where did these atoms come from? They were fused in stars

Light elements combine releasing light from afar

Fusion in the sun, creates Helium

I guess what I be saying is you gotta use your reason

To open up your mind and see the cause of the seasons

-How do we know what's true? The scientific method shows you

It's just chemistry that you and me are made of these atoms

Atoms bond together to form molecules

Most of what's surrounding me and you

Water, sugar, sand and you'll find things undreamed of

So Argon, Neon, Xenon

There's no need to overstate

'Cause we are of course

This, of this, of this, we're made: atoms
