Snow looks white, 'cause it's scattering light elastically. Atoms are everywhere I look, though none of them can be seen. Molecules have always been a challenge to resolve. Light microscopes don't work, heaven knows we tried.
Do they exist? Can they be seen? Maybe using some spectroscopy! For centuries, we didn't know. Well now...we know!
Chemists know, Chemists know What makes water freeze and flow. Chemists know, Chemists know, Why fireflies can glow.
All chemists know Avogadro, Order ten to twenty-three. (the moles never bothered me anyway.)
Angstroms measure distance, Nomenclature hard to say, Though are macroscopic, we always find a way!
We love to see what we can do, Synthesizing novel molecules, From Exclusion Principle of Pauli: CHEMISTRY!
Chemists know, Chemists know About ozone in the sky Chemists know, Chemists know Sigma bonding vs. Pi
We understand Le Chatelier Equilibrium!
There's chemistry to be found, From the air down to the ground. We make these compounds form In flasks with bottoms that are round.
We hope they crystalize, 'Cause columns are the worst! Still we strive to do all this, For the chance to be the first!
Chemists know, Chemists know Why it's red at the break of dawn Chemists know, Chemists know Where reactants go when they're gone.
We need to know Every single way To form or break BONDS! (the moles never bothered me anyway.)
