Meet The Elements by TMBG (They Might Be Giants) Songwriters: John C Flansburgh and John Linnell Iron is a metal, you see it every day Oxygen, eventually, will make it rust away Carbon in its 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 a 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
