[Verse 1]

Hydrogen is everywhere
Dispersed throughout the universe
It's inside every one of us
It has the smallest nucleus

Helium's at number 2
A noble gas it's unsurpassed
Lithium's in batteries
Sitting pretty at number 3

Beryllium is number 4
X-ray window
In aeronautics far and wide
Boric acid pesticide

Carbon's really widespread
Charcoal, diamond, pencil lead
Anything alive or dead
Carbon bonds the most it's said

Nitrogen's in cyanide
In rocket fuel it is applied
Ammonium consists therein
And you all know 'bout oxygen

Fluorine chillin' in the fridge
The most electro-negative
Neon lights on Vegas nights
Sodium in tasty bites

Mobile phone Magnesium
Velocipede Aluminum
Silicon computer chips
Phosphorescent phosphorous!

[Hook]

Period across, and family down
The periodic table is the greatest in town
Alkali, Transitions and the Halogens
Electronegative bonding
Come 'n' take a trip through the elements
Take the first step, come on ladies and gents
What 'cha gonna do so....
Come and take a drink of my H20

[Verse 2]

Sulfur part of acid rain
Fireworks and Cellophane
Chlorine used for disinfectin'
Argon gassed that tasty chicken

Potassium in your banana
Calcium ivory piano
Scandium in aeroplanes
Titanium construction frame

Vanadium in your toolbox
Chromium plated toasters rock
Manganese will cure that rust
Iron becomes a steel truss

Cobalt in your fancy china
Twenty Nickels make a dollar
Copper wire, Zinc batteries
Some Gallium for LEDs

Germanium in camera lenses
Arsenic is poisonous
Selenium can give you cancer
Toxic Bromine's dangerous

Krypton kills your superpowers
Rubidium laser cooling towers
Strontium in CRT's
Yttrium's also in these

Zirconium cuts jewelry
Niobium in MRI's
Molybdenum enrichens soil
Technetium, radio-meds!

[Hook]

[Verse 3]

From here on
The list gets kind of boring
So I'll just do highlights
'Cuz I don't want any snoring

Palladium and Silver
Both are used in flutes and jewelry
Cadmium in batteries power
LCD Indium touchscreens

Snapple's fruit infused with Tin
Wait, you'll get it -- There's that grin
Antimony's a flame retardant
Iodine's a disinfectant

Xenon laser, Cesium clock
Tungsten's used in Halogens
Osmium's the densest schlock
Iridium resists corrosion

Platinum and Gold are pretty pricey
Mercury thermometers will tell you when it's icy
Little Lead figurines are safe from radiation
But that trefoil on Polonium is cause of consternation

Uranium, Plutonium, the last occurring elements
Awww sh- (explosion)
One final element is probably worth a mention, that is
Mendelevium, it's eponym was Mendeleev, the table was his invention!

[Hook X2]
