  • Song Lyrics:
    The sun is a mass of incandescent gas
    A gigantic nuclear furnace
    Where Hydrogen is built into Helium
    At a temperature of millions of degrees

    Yo ho! it's 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
    We need its energy
    Without the sun, without a doubt,
    There'd be no you and me!

    The sun is a 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...

    It is so hot that everything on it is a gas: Iron, Copper, Aluminum, and many others.

    The sun is large...

    If the sun were hollow, a million Earth's could fit inside!
    And yet, the sun is only a middle size star.

    The sun is far away...

    About 93,000,000 miles away; that's why it looks so small!

    And even when it's out of sight
    The sun shines night and day

    The sun gives heat, the sun gives light,
    The sunlight that we seek.
    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 come from the nuclear reactions of Hydrogen, Carbon, Nitrogen, and Helium.

    The sun is a mass of incandescent gas,
    A gigantic nuclear furnace.
    Where Hydrogen is built into Helium
    At a temperature of millions of degrees!
