Lyrics

Three Kinds of Rock
By Jonathan Mirin and Carrie Ferguson

We are three kinds of rock
One two three
We are three kinds of rock
That make our planet bed
Metamorphic and igneous and sedimentary
Three kinds of rock
One two three!

My name is sedimentary and I love to settle down
I’m the kind of rock where fossils can be found
Sediment is mud and sand and gravel and clay
It washes down the rivers and out into the bays
Millions of years go by and sediment gets compressed
Oceans dry up and real Mount Everest

We are three kinds of rock
One two three
We are three kinds of rock
That reveal Earth’s history
Metamorphic and igneous and sedimentary
Three kinds of rock

My name is igneous and igneous means fire
I’m the second kind of rock and I never grow tired
Deep in the Earth there’s magma, melting rocks that blow your mind
Spat out by volcanoes as lava all the time
Or it bubbles up to the crust and there it slowly cools
Then it turns into igneous
Those are the rocky rules!

We are three kinds of rock
One two three
We are three kinds of rock
Found on land and sea
Metamorphic and igneous and sedimentary
Three kinds of rock

My name is metamorphic, heat and pressure press on me
And change me from igneous or sedimentary
Sometimes I’m swirly and sometimes I’m smooth
It depends on how I was cooked and hot the other rocks
made their grooves

We are three kinds of rock
One two three
We are three kinds of rock
That reveal Earth’s history
Metamorphic and igneous and sedimentary
Three kinds of rock

We are three kinds of rock
One two three
We are three kinds of rock
That make our planet be
Metamorphic and igneous and sedimentary
Three kinds of rock
One two three!
