Original song for my Environmental Science project: a song about the metric system.

lyrics:
in seventeen hundred and ninety one
louis the sixteenth adopted
a decimalised measurement system
that included certain fundamental units

meter for length
are for area
liter for liquid capacity
grave for mass

in eighteen hundred and seventy-five
the treaty of the meter
was signed by seventeen countries
and gave us the MKSC system

meter for length
kilogram for mass
second for time
coulomb for electric charge

the international system of units
was developed in nineteen hundred sixty
now it’s almost universally employed
except in burma, liberia, and the US of A

meter for length
kilogram for mass
second for time
ampere for electric current
kelvin for temperature
candela for luminous intensity
mole for amount of a substance

to close my presentation, i must mention
josh wier told me to lament how american
architects are expected to use the US
customary system instead of metric units
and how they have to use dumb fractions like
3 over 32 instead of decimals
