They Might Be Giants Why Does the Sun Shine Lyrics

Last updated: 01/28/2014 05:31:46 AM

The sun is mass of incandescent gas, a gigantic nuclear furnace,
where hydrogen is built into helium at a temperature of millions of degrees.

The sun is hot, the sun is not a place where we could live.
But here on earth there'd be no life without the light it gives.

We need its light.
We need its heat.
The sunlight that we see
The sunlight comes from our own sun's atomic energy

The sun is mass of incandescent gas, a gigantic nuclear furnace.
Where hydrogen is built into helium at a temperature of millions of degrees.

The sun is hot.
The sun is so hot, that everything on it is a gas, aluminum, copper, iron, and many others

The sun is large.
If the sun were hollow a million earths would fit inside, and yet it is only middle-sized star.

The sun is far away.
About 93 million miles away, and that's why it looks so small!
But even when it's out of sight, the sun shines night and day

We need it's heat.
We need it's light
The sunlight that we see.
The sunlight comes from our own sun's atomic energy.

[Scientists have found that the sun is a huge atom-smashing machine. The heat and light of the sun are caused by the nuclear reactions between hydrogen, nitrogen, carbon, and helium!]

The sun is mass of incandescent gas, a gigantic nuclear furnace.
Where hydrogen is built into helium at a temperature of millions of degrees.
