Why Does The Sun Shine? (Live STD)
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

The sun is 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 The sunlight that we see The sunlight comes from our own sun's Atomic energy

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 The sun is so hot that everything on it is a gas Aluminum, copper, iron, and many others

The sun is large If the sun were hollow, a million Earths would fit inside And yet, it 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

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

We need its heat We need its 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 are caused By the nuclear reaction between hydrogen, nitrogen, carbon, 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

The sun, ladies and gentlemen
