The lyrics are to their song Robot Parade from the album NO :p It's a pretty cute song lol. Been listening to TMBG since I was like 2 xD I know nearly every song
this song is so catchy
@scorcher its because Jonathan Coulton, one of the guys in this group, wrote Still Alive from the first portal

Radiolab helped them get their facts right: http://www.r a d i o l a b . o r g / s t o r y / 9 1 9 2 4 - i t - m i g h t - b e - s c i e n c e /
is it bad i know the lyrics word for word
What's with the lyrics?
Why is this on my GLaDOS channel? not complaining though
I love this song!
Did anyone else get lyrics about a robot parade?
Aww, this was a shortened version. (:(
I think the lyrics are pretty darn close. I don't see how you think they aren't .
Those lyrics aren't even close.

Good job, bunny :|
Uh oh. Pandora's really gone off the deep end with the lyrics on this one.
Bunny tried living on the sun

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*

The lyrics are so butchered.

The sun is a 4th type of matter!
this band formed in the 80's. i didn't know it was 2040
guys really this is an old song and back then they didn't know as much about the sun as we do now. this song was made over 60 years ago
incorect its plazma
jbachm3962
good, but appears TOO MUCH
if u read the lyrics some are ot of order or wrong.
this song is funny and somewhat educational.
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.
ctprograms
YEAH SCIENCE
Science is fun! \o/
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.
lps_collecto r
The sun is a EPIC WIN.
lyrics fail
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.
halo_boy10
so true
hadbrook
so...adictiv e . Can't...stop singing...it .
Argh! so awsome!
My science teacher in highschool played this song for us.
