The Lyrics

Not sure why I haven't submitted this, guess because no one will understand it unless you've taken chemistry or are a chemist. In fact, I don't understand this anymore either. I wrote it in 9th grade (i.e., when this song was new) for an extra credit assignment where we had to present the rules of solubility in a "creative and memorable way." Be forewarned you may have to add a syllable here and there to make these lyrics fit in the original song.
Rules of solubility,
Here’s the ones that are soluble;
Won’t solidify:
Ammonium, sodium, sulfate,
Chloride, potassium, nitrate,
Nitrate is always.

These solutions are all aqueous,
But there’s those annoying exceptions:
Mercury and silvah,
Also lead, I tell ya:
With chloride they are not friends.
For sulfate, notable:
Are lead, calcium, and barium.
Remember, hey, those were soluble,
Okay, fine, I’ll say it all again.

The salts in water that are soluble:
Sodium, chloride, and sulfate,
Also, potassium and ammonium,
Of course, our favorite is nitrate!

Rules of solubility:
Here’s the ones that are IN-soluble;
May solidify.
Also they’re known as just slightly
Since there’s no difference we can see,
We’ll say they same thing.

Sulfide, carbonate, and phosphate,
The exception one’s hydroxide:
And sodium,
With hydroxide they can’t abide.
Notice what they’re attached to
If you want to get it right.
Oh, that’s right, moderately soluble:
Barium, calcium on hydroxide.

The salts, in water, insoluble:
They’re hydroxide and phosphate,
Also known as slightly soluble,
There is sulfide and carbonate!
Rules of solubility,
From the 7.1 table,
I just sang it, right?
Ionic compounds in water,
That is at room temperature.
Temperature ture, ture, ture.

I haven’t yet said everything,
Apparently there’s more just like chlorine:
Bromide and iodide salts, you see
Were only shown on table 7.3!
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na,
Bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla
Rules of solubility:
In your head where they should be put.
Better memorize,
So when it is experiment day,
It will not blow up in your face.
Get an A A A A+
Two girls in that class also worked together on a parody of "Independent" by Webbie for their assignment, where the chorus spelled out "I-N-S-O-L-U-B-L-E" instead of "I-N-D-E-P-E-N-D-E-N-T". Anyway, here's my YouTube Channel, since I seem to put this in the footer of every song I submit no matter how lame.
