The sun is a mass of incandescent gas, A gigantic nuclear furnace---------------------------------------------------|-1--3--1-1---------------------------------1-3-1---|------------2---0-2-0-------------------2----------|--------------3--------3--0-----3--3-3-------------|----------------------------3-3--------------------|---------------------------------------------------|
Where hydrogen is built into helium, At a temperature of millions of degrees---------------------------------------------------|-1--3--1-1-----------------------------------------|------------2---0-2-0-------------------2-----0----|--------------3--------3--0-----3--3-3-----3-----3-|----------------------------3-3--------------------|---------------------------------------------------|
Yo ho, it's hot-----------------|--3--1-----------|-------2---------|---------3-------|-----------------|-----------------|
the sun is not-----------------|--3--1-----------|-------2---------|---------3-------|-----------------|-----------------|
A place where we could live----------------|--3--1----------|-------2-0---0--|-----------3----|----------------|----------------|
But here on Earth there'd be no life Without the light it gives-----------------------------------------------|------------------------1-1-1-1----------------|-------0-2---0-2-3---0-------------------------|----3------3---------------------3-------------|--3--------------------------------------------|-----------------------------------------------|
We need its light-----------------|--3--1-----------|-------2---------|---------3-------|-----------------|-----------------|
We need its heat-----------------|--3--1-----------|-------2---------|---------3-------|-----------------|-----------------|
We need its energy----------------|--3--1----------|-------2-0---0--|-----------3----|----------------|----------------|
Without the sun, without a doubt there'd be no you and me-----------------------------------------------|------------------------1-1-1-1----------------|-------0-2---0-2-3---0-------------------------|----3------3---------------------3-------------|--3--------------------------------------------|-----------------------------------------------|
The sun is a mass of incandescent gas, A gigantic nuclear furnace---------------------------------------------------|-1--3--1-1---------------------------------1-3-1---|------------2---0-2-0-------------------2----------|--------------3--------3--0-----3--3-3-------------|----------------------------3-3--------------------|---------------------------------------------------|
Where hydrogen is built into helium, At a temperature of millions of degrees---------------------------------------------------|-1--3--1-1-----------------------------------------|------------2---0-2-0-------------------2-----0----|--------------3--------3--0-----3--3-3-----3-----3-|----------------------------3-3--------------------|---------------------------------------------------|
the sun is hot-----------------|--3--1-----------|-------2---------|---------3-------|-----------------|-----------------|
It is so hot that everything on it is a gas: iron, copper, aluminum, and many others.
The sun is large-----------------|--3--1-----------|-------2---------|---------3-------|-----------------|-----------------|
If the sun were hollow, a million Earths could fit inside. And yet, the sun is only a star.
The sun is far away----------------|--3--1----------|-------2-0---0--|-----------3----|----------------|----------------|
About 93 million miles away, and that's why it looks so small.
And even when it's out of sight the sun shines night and day-----------------------------------------------|------------------------1-1-1-1----------------|-------0-2---0-2-3---0-------------------------|----3------3---------------------3-------------|--3--------------------------------------------|-----------------------------------------------|
The sun gives heat-----------------|--3--1-----------|-------2---------|---------3-------|-----------------|-----------------|
The sun gives light-----------------|--3--1-----------|-------2---------|---------3-------|-----------------|-----------------|
The sunlight that we see----------------|--3--1----------|-------2-0---0--|-----------3----|----------------|----------------|
The sunlight comes from our own sun's atomic energy-----------------------------------------------|------------------------1-1-1-1----------------|-------0-2---0-2-3---0-------------------------|----3------3---------------------3-------------|--3--------------------------------------------|-----------------------------------------------|
Scientists have found that the sun is a huge atom-smashing machine. The heat and light of the sun come from the nuclear reactions of hydrogen, carbon, and helium.***
