Why Does The Sun Shine?
By: Hy Zaret And Lou Singer
Year: 1959

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 the sun Without a doubt 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

It is so hot that everything on it is a gas Iron, copper, aluminum, and many others

The sun is large

If the sun were hollow, a million Earths could fit inside And yet, the sun is only a middle-sized star

The sun is far away

About ninety-three 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


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


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, nitrogen, and helium


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
