The s[F]un is a mass of inc[Bb]andescant gas. a gi[F]gantic nuclear
fu[C]rnace.
Where hyd[F]rogen is built into he[Bb]lium at a temp[F]erature of
mil[C]lions of deg[F]ree[Bb]s  [F]

Verse:
The s[F]un is hot. the [Bb]sun is not a pl[F]ace where we could l[C]ive.
But he[F]re on earth there'd [Bb]be no life with o[F]ut the light it gi[C]ves.[Bb]   [F]
We n[F]eed it's light we n[Bb]eed it's heat. The sun[F]light that we s[C]ee.
The sun[F]light comes from [Bb]our own suns at[F]omic en[C]ergy. [Bb]    [F]

Chorus:
The s[F]un is a mass of inc[Bb]andescant gas. a gi[F]gantic nuclear
fu[C]rnace.
Where hyd[F]rogen is built into he[Bb]lium at a temp[F]erature of
mil[C]lions of deg[F]ree[Bb]s  [F]

Bridge:
The s[F]un is [Bb]hot....

(The sun is so hot that everything on it is a gas. Aluminum, copper, iron,
and many others)
The s[F]un is l[Bb]arge...
(If the sun were hollow a million earths would fit inside. and yet it
is only a middle sized star)
The s[F]un  is f[Bb]ar a[C]way...
(About ninty-three million miles away. And that's why it looks so small )

But e[F]ven when it's [Bb]out of site the s[C]un shines night and d[F]ay.    [Bb]    [F]
We ne[F]ed it's h[Bb]eat. We n[F]eed it's l[Bb]ight. the sun[F]light that we s[C]ee
The su[F]nlight comes f[Bb]rom our own suns at[C]omic en[F]ergy [Bb]   [F]

( Scientists have found that the sun is a huge atom smashing machine. The
heat and light of the sun are caused by nuclear reactions between hydrogen,
nitrogen, carbon, and helium.)


Chorus:
The s[F]un is a mass of inc[Bb]andescant gas. a gi[F]gantic nuclear
fu[C]rnace.
Where hyd[F]rogen is built into he[Bb]lium at a temp[F]erature of
mil[C]lions of deg[F]ree[Bb]s  [F]
