GRAVITY (sung to “Jingle Bells”)

 by Alvin Lee, Wakefield High School, Arlington VA, 1982


A comet hits the earth, it’s made of methane ice,

it makes a giant force, now isn’t that so nice?

So, what made it come here? What made it hit the earth?

The answer’s very clear, my friend, it fills you up with mirth!!


GRAV-I-TY, GRAV-I-TY, keeps us on the ground.

An apple fell on Newton, he said, “What goes up comes down.”

GRAV-I-TY, GRAV-I-TY, mass time nine point eight.

Remember, travel very fast if earth you must escape.


Walk around the earth, keep a steady pace.

If gravity twern’t here, you’d float away in space.

Call it what you want, call it any name, But this force us a heavy

weight, attraction is its game, OHHHHHH…
