Physics

Original Artist: Ben Folds

Underwater
Sea creatures and scuba
divers with spears
Have bouyant force
That almost exactly balances
Their weight

The bouyant force
is equal
To the weight
Of the volume
Of fluid displacement

And it rises, because the pressure increases
And the depth is in the fluid
And the sea creatures
Even humans
Have a density
Fairly close to the water

So their weight
Is very nearly
Equal
To the bouyant force

Actually humans
Have a density
That is less
Than the water
So they can float
In fluids...
???
...where a human fluid velocity is higher.
Motherfucker!
Motherfucker!

Give me my fluid!
My fluid!
Density and gravity and pressure,
and all that fuckin' shit!
Oh!
No!
In this fuckin' song!
