About this Song

1998 recording with Bluestone Bantha. This is the song about the Metric system.

Lyrics

I watch all the clouds in the sky,
They go by in miles.
I watch all the clouds go by,
I wish they'd go by in meters.

Chorus:
Metric is Better...(repeat four times)

I watch all the milk in my cup,
It is a cup of milk.
I watch all the milk flow in my cup,
I wish it'd flow in liters.

Chorus

What is wrong with this country?
We're the only ones who use a dumb system when
Metric is better.
It's our minds, It's what we're used to.
Change your mind, change what you use to
Measure your arm.

I watch a crowd of people,
They weigh a million pounds.
I watch and I wave at the people,
I wish they'd weigh 453,592.37 Kilograms

Chorus

It's our minds, It's what we're used to.
Change your mind, change what you use to
Measure your arm.
It's so easy, way so easy
Ours is cheesy, way too cheesy,
Metric should be ours.

Kilo Hecto Deka grams,
Deci Centi Milli meters,
Kilo Hecto Deka liters,
Deci Centi Milli grams.

Chorus
