Note: accidentally switched Charm and Strange.
The original version, wobbliness and inaccuracies and all, is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5kXdSm...

We now have found a Higgs-like particle.
It is a Boson, we're 5-sigma sure.
I read about it in an article,
Along with facts a little more obscure.

Now here's the mass of our beloved boson:
125.3 gigaelectronvolts,
133 times heavier than a proton.
It's like we're seeing the universe's nuts and bolts.

The standard model's other bosons are:
Photons, gluons, W, and Z.
These make the forces found in every star,
Plus maybe gravitons for gravity.

But what gives mass to heavy things like pigs?
It is our new discovery: the Higgs

-like particle.
