The Lyrics

This was written for a Chemistry assignment. It has a lot of the elements in order of atomic mass.
Ladies and gentlemen, it is with deepest pride and greatest pleasure that we welcome you today. And now, we invite you to relax, please pull up a chair as we proudly present... The Elements.

Do Do your best.
Learn this table, there'll be a test.
Please pick up the page I handed out,
And I'll provide the rest.
Hydrogen, Helium.
Lithium, Beryllium!
There's Boron, Carbon, and Nitrogen.
Don't believe me ask Stankunas!
Count the moles, check the mass.
After all, this is science class.
Oxygen, Fluorine, Neon, and Sodium.
And there's Magnesium.
Hey you, take out your gum and do your best.
Yes, your best. Do your best!

Aluminum, Silicon.
Phosphorus, and Sulfur too.

Don't let these simple Algebra problems turn you blue!
There's Chlorine and Argon,
Potassium and Calcium.
No one's writing or button-pressing,
'til I've finished demonstrating!
Scandium, Titanium,
Vanadium and Chromium.

Come on, let's keep on listing elements.

Manganese and Iron.
Cobalt, Nickel, Copper,
Please do your best.

If you're stressed, it's this music we suggest!

Do your best. Do your best. Do your best!

There's Zinc and Gallium, Germanium and Arsenic.
Selenium, Bromine, Krypton.
Well, there's Rubidium and Strontium.
Yttrium, Zirconium, Niobium.
One forty years in being,
Needing so much more than reading.
Molybdenum, Technetium, Ruthenium.
Rhodium, Palladium, and Silver.
Cadmium, Idium,
I told you to take out your gum!

Hey, your best! Do your best!
Sakes alive, this ain't in jest!
Tin, Antimony, Tellurium,
Iodine, Xenon, Cesium.
Come on back, can't you see?
This is for your good, not me.
There's Barium and Lanthanum
Cerium, Praseodymium!
It's too warm, way too hot.
How much time have we got?
There's Neodymium and Promethium.
We've got a lot to do!
Is the charge plus one or two?
I said your best. Yes your best!
Please your best! Do your best!

Do your best! Do your best!
Your command is my request.
Well there's Samarium and Europium, over there,
And we're obsessed!
There's Gadolinium, Terbium,
Yes, indeed, we aim to please.
While the U238's still glowing,
Let us help you, we'll keep going!

Group by group, one by one!
'til you shout, "Enough, I'm done!"
Then we'll sing until cardiac arrest.
Tonight you'll prop your feet up!
But for now, let's read up!
Do your best! Do your best! Do your best!
Please do your best!

I can appreciate the thought that went into this one... tricky with the scansion, and virtually impossible to get all the rhymes in, but if it helps can remember your periodic table. I hope you got an 'A' - you deserve it.

Having a background in science, I feel qualified to give you 555, Chalupas, nice job.
