Happy Valentine’s Day!
Here’s lyrics to a song that I performed at UCLA’s engineering school talent show back in 2005. I was the host, not a contestant, but I wanted to provide some entertainment in between. So I wrote this song, because what’s the problems with love songs nowadays? “Not enough science in those songs!”
I can’t find a recording, but here’s the lyrics for you:
by Kelvin Kao
You are a proton,
I am an electron.
Ever since I first met you,
I was so attracted to you.
You are always so positive,
compensating for my being negative.
We have such a strong bond,
you know I will always be around.
Oh, how I fell for you,
and it’s not just due to the gravity.
I want to be your one and only,
so a hydrogen atom we shall be.
(That’s one proton and one electron, get it?)
So please be my proton.
I will be your electron.
If someone asks, what’s between you and me,
I’ll tell them, it’s purely chemistry.
