Ode to Bicarbonate
(to the tune of "Song Sung Blue")
Copyright © 2011 Kevin Ahern

David Simmons' recording HERE

H-2-O
Ionizes slowly
You should know
Its behavior wholly

It presides  - in cells’ insides - a solvent great

But mix it with an oil and shake it up

You’ll see ‘em separate

See ‘em separate

 

C-O-2

Made in oxidation

Inside you

Decarboxylation

 

So divine – when it combines up with the H-2-Os

Bonding together makes bicarbonates

To ease the pH woes

 

Bicarbonate – can conjugate and take protons out

Restoring a balance inside of the blood

Of this there is no doubt

 

Thus it’s so

Thanks to bicarb buffer

In blood flow

You don’t have to suffer

 

Bicarbonate – will conjugate to take the protons out

Restoring a balance inside of the blood

Of this there is no doubt

 

Protons stow

In the bicarb buffer

Never grow

So you do not suffer

(fade)
