Somebody's getting picked on. Somebody's getting put down. Somebody's getting beat up and bullied while the boys make a circle on the playground. Somebody ought to stop this. Anybody can see it isn't right. Somebody's getting hurt and humiliated just because a bully started picking a fight. I can stand here watching feeling smaller than a zero Or I could take some action and become somebody's hero Somebody's hero - I could make that play! Somebody's hero - I could save the day! Somebody's hero - How cool would it be If somebody's thinking hero... And thinking of me? Somebody's getting cast out. Somebody's getting trash talked. Somebody's getting dragged through the gossip by the girls in the circle on the sidewalk. Somebody ought to speak up. Anybody can see it isn't good. Somebody's getting hurt and humiliated just because a bully started saying she should. And I can stand here listening feeling smaller than a zero Or I could take some action and become somebody's hero Somebody's hero - I could make that play! Somebody's hero - I could save the day! Somebody's hero - How cool would it be If Somebody's thinking hero... And thinking of me? I don't care what it looks like. I don't care if haters gonna hate. Somebody needs a friend right now; I'm stepping up to that plate. No more silent watching. No more letting bullies win. Somebody needs a hero. I'm stepping in! Somebody's hero - I'm gonna get that done! Somebody's hero - I’m gonna be the one! Somebody's hero - My choice is clear When Somebody needs a hero... I volunteer!

Every chunk of matter can be broken into parts But there are no smaller pieces than quarks and electrons Everything we touch, everything we see Is different combinations of quarks and electrons Formed by the Big Bang Cooled into atoms of hydrogen and helium Forged by stars into Carbon and Oxygen Blown away by supernovae, strewn across the universe, Coalesced again into bodies like Planet Earth Forming into patterns that can run around and replicate Evolving into thinking things that know themselves and contemplate Fourteen billion years they’ve been coming along Now quarks and electrons wrote this song! Quarks and electrons Quarks and electrons Every chunk of matter can be broken into parts But there are no smaller pieces than quarks and electrons Everything we touch, everything we see Is different combinations of quarks and electrons Other stuff is unseen It has to be there somewhere when we add up all the gravity We call it dark matter and it's pulling on the galaxies And something else is pushing, making everything expand We call it dark energy 'cause we don't understand Whatever that stuff is it makes up nearly all the universe Just 4% of everything is stars, planets, moons and us Yet even though it seems we're only tagging along, Quarks and electrons wrote this song! Quarks and electrons Quarks and electrons Quarks and electrons forming into atoms Evolving into DNA and complicated proteins Proteins make neurons and neurons make a brain The brain is the organ that can reason and explain about Quarks and electrons Quarks and electrons Quarks and electrons wrote this song!

A blue moon rises at midnight Hound dog’s howling the news A kitten on drums begins to play A parakeet hits the key of A A terrier digging a saxophone is blowing the blues They do the pet rock - rock and roll! They do the pet rock - rock and roll! They do the pet rock - rock and roll! Rock and roll all night! The garden gates are all gaping open The music calls them into the street The potbelly pig is strumming the strat Iguana on bass, harmonica rat They know the sound of freedom is a rock n roll beat They do the pet rock - rock and roll! They do the pet rock - rock and roll! They do the pet rock - rock and roll! Rock and roll all night! Now no one in the neighborhood is getting any sleep Don’t even think to bother with the counting of the sheep The sheep are in the cul-de-sac underneath the stars Jamming with the moon dogs ringing their guitars May as well get up and go outside Although your mama may not understand You don’t wanna miss the dogs and cats Turtles and ferrets and frogs and rats Dancing to the music of the Pet Rock Band They do the pet rock - rock and roll! They do the pet rock - rock and roll! They do the pet rock - rock and roll! Rock and roll all night!

The moment I first caught your scent I knew I wanted to addict myself to you We spent the day together making crazy rock n roll Now you are my one and only vole You are my one and only vole You are my one and only vole (2x) Now every time your odor hits my brain My dopamine receptors go insane Love has taken over and I think I've lost control Now you are my one and only vole You are my one and only vole You are my one and only vole (2x) Science says our bond is made with chemistry Oxytocin’s all it’s fashioned of I just know that you’re the only vole for me And chemicals don’t mean I’m not in love So let us build a burrow filled with pups I’ll stick around and help you raise them up I am bonded to you babe cause that’s the way I roll You know you are my one and only vole You are my one and only vole You are my one and only vole (2x)
