Magnetism (Where the Story Starts)
By Jonathan Mirin and Carrie Ferguson

To attract is to bring together
To repel is to push apart
Please tell me where this story
has its start

Way back in the beginning of time
electrons began to fly
around their atoms’ nuclei
and spinning ‘round themselves

Spinning ‘round themselves, round and round
Spinning ‘round themselves, and around the nucleus
Spinning ‘round themselves, round and round
Spinning ‘round themselves, and around the nucleus

When electrons spin the same way
that’s when magnetism starts to play
with lines of force strong and straight
creating North and South poles

Difference pulls and sameness pushes back
like repels like and opposites attract
every magnet has a North and South pole
that’s where the magnetic field grows

North attracts South, South attracts North
Lines of force, of course, of course
North repels North, South repels South
‘cuz of all those electrons spinning around

Spinning ‘round themselves, round and round
Spinning ‘round themselves, and around the nucleus
Spinning ‘round themselves, round and round
Spinning ‘round themselves, and around the nucleus

To attract is to bring together
To repel is to push apart
Maggie: Thank you for telling me where this story
All: has its start

North attracts South, South attracts North
Lines of force, of course, of course
North repels North, South repels South
‘cuz of all those electrons spinning around

Spinning ‘round themselves, round and round
Spinning ‘round themselves, and around the nucleus
Spinning ‘round themselves, round and round
Spinning ‘round themselves, and around the nucleus
