"Why Does The Sun Shine?"
Full Tab and lyrics
Tabbed by Erik Bartsch (Grumblecakes) 7/8/05

The sun is a mass of incandescent gas, A gigantic nuclear furnace

Where hydrogen is built into helium, At a temperature of millions of degrees

Yo ho, it's hot

-----------------|
-----------------|

the sun is not
-----------------|
--3--1-----------|
-------2---------|
---------3-------|
-----------------|
-----------------|

A place where we could live
----------------|
--3--1----------|
-------2-0---0--|

But here on Earth there'd be no life Without the light it gives
-----------------------------------------------|
------------------------1-1-1-1----------------|

----3------3---------------------3-------------|

We need its light
-----------------|

-----------------|

We need its heat
-----------------|
--3--1-----------|

We need its energy

Without the sun, without a doubt there'd be no you and me

---------------------------------------------------|

the sun is hot
-----------------|
--3--1-----------|
-------2---------|
---------3-------|
-----------------|
-----------------|

It is so hot that everything on it is a gas: iron, copper, aluminum, and many others.

The sun is large
-----------------|
--3--1-----------|
-------2---------|
---------3-------|
-----------------|
-----------------|

If the sun were hollow, a million Earths could fit inside. And yet, the sun is only a 
star.

The sun is far away
----------------|
--3--1----------|
-------2-0---0--|
-----------3----|
----------------|
----------------|

About 93 million miles away, and that's why it looks so small.

And even when it's out of sight the sun shines night and day
-----------------------------------------------|

The sun gives heat

The sunlight that we see
----------------|
--3--1----------|
-------2-0---0--|

The sunlight comes from our own sun's atomic energy

Scientists have found that the sun is a huge atom-smashing machine.
The heat and light of the sun come from the nuclear reactions of hydrogen, carbon, 
and helium.***

The sun is a mass of incandescent gas, A gigantic nuclear furnace
