The Lyrics

The chemical engineer's version of this song.
Dew drops in still, SN-2 substitution
Bright copper blue of the sulfate solution
Grand paper machines, polyamide strings
- these are a few of my favorite things.

Cream colour emulsions and crisp crystal structures
gene transplantation and metallic textures
Titration, nitration, 'romatic rings
these are a few of my favorite things.

Girls in white lab coats and redox reactions
Organic acids, petroleum fractions
Liebig and Cavendish, Bohr and Pauling -
these are a few of my favourite things

When it blows up, when it burns down
when I'm feeling sad,
I simply remember my favorite things,
and then I don't feel so bad.

Refineries, stills and McCabe-Thieley method
Hydrogen bubbles that gather on cathode
Stainless steel columns packed with Raschig rings -
these are a few of my favorite things.

Blast furnace, crucible, LD converter
oxygen blow will get process bit further
Oligopeptides add up proteins -
these are a few of my favourite things

Hydrogen sulfide and smell of ammonia
Fruit odoured esters and amine aroma
HDPE, kevlar, polystyrene
these are a few of my favourite things

When it blows up, when it burns down
when I'm feeling sad,
I simply remember my favorite things,
and then I don't feel so bad.

Whisky and beer and the wort-boiling kettles
Bright-coloured flames of the second group metals
Enthalpy, entropy, orbitals, spins -
these are a few of my favourite things

Alkaloids, aldehydes and high explosives
Potash and soda and anti-corrosives
Rare earths, halogens, nitroglycerine -
these are a few of my favourite things

Synthesis formulae, reaction dynamics
Ellingham diagram, stability matrix
DNA helix that's colied just like spring -
these are a few of my favourite things

When it blows up, when it burns down
when I'm feeling sad,
I simply remember my favorite things,
and then I don't feel so bad.

I loved your song. As for the cds that go along with the song you had on there, I HAVE The Boyfriend CD. Our school did it, and at 1st I just wanted it because it sounded good. Then I listened to it in a store before I looked at who was in its production and i reconcnized her voice right away. Its hard to not recogonize her voice. Well, i loved your song. I was having a kind of bad day... up to now!

Love it! One thing though, you spell "colour" in the british way and "favorite" the american way. Are you Canadian or similar?
