“STATIC EQUILIBRIUM” (sung to “Winter Wonderland”)

by Alvin Lee, Wakefield High School, Arlington VA, 1983


All my moments have cancelled,

sum of forces is equal,

I’m fully inert, and doing no work,

here in sta-tic e-qui-lib-ri-um.

Every push meets another,

every pull has a counter,

the state I allude is true lassitude,

here in sta-tic e-qui-lib-ri-um.


All my forces balance out exactly,

you can even put me to the test.

Push me out in any ole direction,

And you’ll find I’ll no longer be at rest.


Can’t you see that I’m happy?

Sitting here, calm and mellow?

Don’t want to go home,

So leave me alone,

here in sta-tic e-qui-lib-ri-um.
