Elemental Learning

(to the tune of "Sentimental Journey")

Copyright © 2011 Kevin Ahern


I like the simplicity of this song. Recorded by Heather Boren and Eric Hill, Elemental Learning talks about the instability of nuclei in the tune of an old 40s song. Heather's vocals capture the feel of the original song beautifully. One of my favorites. You can download the recording HERE.


Gonna do

Some elemental learning

Studying for my degree



My supplemental earnings

With atomic chemistry


Learning ‘bout

The subatomic units

In an atom’s nucleus


Balance charge

With all of the electrons

Or an ion you’ll possess



They’re the chargeless bits in


Protons sometimes wish they had ‘em

Gotta have an a-dequate supply

In nuclei


If you don’t

There’ll be a price for payin’

For the instability


‘Cuz you’ll get

The nucleus decaying



Elemental Learning!
