Carbon is a Girl's Best Friend

by Leslie Taylor


Video posted by mhoowen

This song by Lynda Williams sung to the tune of "Diamonds are a girl's best friend," begins:

A lithium dose just might cure your depression
but carbon is a girls best friend.
Gold may be grand but it wont start a fire in your
BBQ or put the toot in your choo-choo.
Life on Earth is carbon based.
It came here on rocks from outer space and
formed organic compounds till
the carbon-cycle went round and round!
Carbon is a girls best friend!
