Sodium Chloride


Just a little atom of chlorine, valence minus one
Swimming through the sea, diggin' the scene, just havin' fun
She's not worried about the shape or size of her outer shell — it's fun to ionize
Just a little atom of Cl with an unfilled shell.

But somewhere in that sea lurks handsome sodium
With enough electrons on his outside shell plus an extra one
"Somewhere in this deep blue sea, there is a negative for my extra energy”
Yes somewhere in this foam,
my positive will find a home

Then unsuspecting chlorine felt a magnetic pull
She looked down and her outside shell was full!
Sodium cried "What a gas, be my bride,
And I'll change your name from chlorine to chloride!"

Now the sea evaporates to make the clouds for rain and snow,
Leaving her chemical compounds in the absence of H2O
But the crystals that wash upon the shore are happy ones, so if you never thought before,
Think of the love that you eat ... when you salt your meat!
