Mother Earth is Rocking

During Yountville's Earth & Beyond class today, they had fun singing a spin off of Queen's "We Will Rock You," entitled "Mother Earth is Rocking."

Take a look at Yountville's fifth graders singing! If you're following along with the lyrics (posted below), they're on the third verse.



Here are the lyrics:

Chorus: Mother Earth is Rocking
              Mother Earth is Rocking

Magma rises in the crust,
Turns to a rock called igneous.
Cools down slow, cools down fast.
To crystallize or look like glass.
-----Chorus-----
Sedimentary rock, the layered look.
Time and force is what it took.
To make a rock from sediment.
Water squeezed out to make mineral cement.
-----Chorus-----
Even rocks may feel pain,
When heat and pressure make ‘em change their name.
Limestone to marble, shale to slate.
Metamorphic rocks have come a long way.
-----Chorus-----
Water, soil, air and rock.
Gotta keep recycling what we’ve got.
Sun’s gonna be ‘round long enough.
Let’s work with Mother Nature, she knows her stuff.
-----Chorus-----

This song was written by one of our wonderful Naturalists, Shelley Oeverndiek.
