Music Monday: The Element Song by Tom Lerher #NonFictionNovember #Science #Elements #Knowledge #TattooedBookGeek #Music

Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Monday to bring spirit to the hardest day of the week. It’s #NonfictionNovember here on ATIB! What better way to kick things off than with a Non-Fiction Song! I have loved this song for as long as I can remember and it was a great opportunity to share it with everyone as part of the NF festivities. I tried to learn every element on the periodic table at one point. I memorised about 86 of them! What a nerd 😀

The Element Song by Tom Lerher

The Element Song by Tom Lerher

There’s antimony, arsenic, aluminum, selenium,
And hydrogen and oxygen and nitrogen and rhenium,
And nickel, neodymium, neptunium, germanium,
And iron, americium, ruthenium, uranium,

Europium, zirconium, lutetium, vanadium,
And lanthanum and osmium and astatine and radium,
And gold, protactinium and indium and gallium,
And iodine and thorium and thulium and thallium.

There’s yttrium, ytterbium, actinium, rubidium,
And boron, gadolinium, niobium, iridium,
There’s strontium and silicon and silver and samarium,
And bismuth, bromine, lithium, beryllium, and barium.

There’s holmium and helium and hafnium and erbium,
And phosphorus and francium and fluorine and terbium,
And manganese and mercury, molybdenum, magnesium,
Dysprosium and scandium and cerium and cesium.

And lead, praseodymium and platinum, plutonium,
Palladium, promethium, potassium, polonium,
And tantalum, technetium, titanium, tellurium,
And cadmium and calcium and chromium and curium.

There’s sulfur, californium and fermium, berkelium,
And also mendelevium, einsteinium, nobelium,
And argon, krypton, neon, radon, xenon, zinc and rhodium,
And chlorine, carbon, cobalt, copper, tungsten, tin and sodium.

These are the only ones of which the news has come to Harvard,
And there may be many others but they haven’t been discovered.

Thanks for coming by check out the first stop on quite a busy week for non-fiction here on ATIB. I am going to attempt to find several other Non-Fiction inspired songs for this month so wish me luck. The Element Song inspired me to learn about the periodic table and learn its secrets. I hope you all enjoy this ode to science and come back plenty this month for NF reviews, posts, Q&As and more!
