Where Your Eyes Don't Go - Why Does The Sun Shine? Medley

Where your eyes don't go a filthy scarecrow waves its broomstick arms And does a parody of each unconscious thing you do When you turn around to look it's gone behind you On its face it's wearing your confused expression Where your eyes don't go

Where your eyes don't go a part of you is hovering It's a nightmare that you'll never be discovering You're free to come and go Or talk like Kurtis Blow But there's a pair of eyes in back of your head

Every jumbled pile of person has a thinking part That wonders what the part that isn't thinking isn't thinking of Should you worry when the skullhead is in front of you Or is it worse because it's always waiting Where your eyes don't go?

Where your eyes don't go a part of you is hovering It's a nightmare that you'll never be discovering You're free to come and go Or talk like Kurtis Blow But there's a pair of eyes in back of your head

Where your eyes don't go a filthy scarecrow waves its broomstick arms and does a parody of each unconscious thing you do When you turn around and look it's gone behind you On its face it's wearing your confused expression Where your eyes don't go...

The sun is a mass of incandescent gas A gigantic nuclear furnace Where hydrogen is built into helium At a temperature of millions of degrees Yo ho, it's hot The sun is not A place where we could live But here on Earth there'd be no life Without the light it gives

We need its light We need its heat We need its energy Without a doubt Without the sun There'd be no you and me

The sun is a mass of incandescent gas A gigantic nuclear furnace Where hydrogen is built into helium At a temperature of millions of degrees

The sun is hot

JL: It is so hot that everything on it is a gas. Aluminum, copper, and iron.

The sun is large

JL: If the sun were hollow, a million Earths would fit inside, and yet, it is only a medium-sized star.

The sun is far away

JL: It's about ninety-three million miles away! And that's why it looks so small.

But even when it's out of sight, the sun shines night and day

The sun gives heat The sun gives light The sunlight that we see The sunlight comes from our own sun's atomic energy

JL: Scientists have found that the sun is a huge atom-smashing machine. The heat and light from the sun are caused by the nuclear reactions between oxygen, hydrogen, nitrogen, helium, and... hydrogen.

The sun is a mass of incandescent gas A gigantic nuclear furnace Where hydrogen is built into helium At a temperature of millions of degrees
