Why Does The Sun Shine? (The Sun Is A Mass Of Incandescent Gas) (Live)

Lyrics

The sun is 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

Oh dear. I looked up Portal 2 and other portal related things. This pops up on the station. Geez Glados, apparently you like the Sun more than the moon.

Reason for wrong lyrics: This is a live version. They changed the lyrics a bit. If you listen to the normal (boring) version, the posted lyrics are correct.

Incorrect lyrics make my face and/or personality frown for the period the lyrics are being read at the same time the song of said lyrics is producing sound . *Frown*

this song is funny and somewhat educational.
Report as inappropriate
This song is actually an excellent cover of a song from a very old children's educational program. It is somewhat inaccurate because what scientists thought in the fifties was inaccurate. "They Might Be Giants" did several covers of this, including one that sounded exactly like the original.

This song blinded me. Cause it's science.

wrong lyrics. these are the words to the original song. I hate my science teacher for making me know that! it's pathetic!

we need more songs that I can use in a science project.

@Rufus, Plasma is nothing more than a gas heated to point where it becomes the fourth state of matter.

Rufus: They actually have a song correcting it. They call it a "miasma of incandescent plasma" :)

The sun is a mass of incandescent PLASMA. There is so much discriminati o n against the fourth state of matter, its quite sad.
