Chemistry

I remember when I found out about chemistry
It was a long, long way from here
I was old enough to want it but younger than I wanted to be
Suddenly my mission was clear

So for a while I conducted experiments
And I was amazed by the things I learned
From the fine, fine girl with nothing but good intentions and a bad tendency to get burned

Oh
All about chemistry
Won’t you show me everything you know
Ah wonder what you do to me Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh

Some time later I met a young graduate
When I had nobody to call my own
I told her I was looking for somebody to appreciate
And I just couldn’t do it alone

So for awhile we conducted experiments
In an apartment by the River Road
And we found out that the two things we put together had a bad tendency to explode

Oh
All about chemistry
Won’t you show me everything you’ve learned
I’ll memorize everything you do to me so I can
Teach it when it comes my turn

Fine spring day, California waves
Sweet Pacific scenes through the
Windows of airplanes and hotel rooms

So when I find myself alone and unworthy
I think about all of the things I learned from the
Fine, fine women with nothing but good intentions and a bad tendency to get burned

Oh
All about chemistry
Won’t you show me everything you know
Ah wonder what you do to me Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh

All about chemistry
Won’t you show me everything you’ve learned
I’ll memorize everything you do to me so I can teach it when it comes my turn

It’s all about chemistry (California waves)
It’s all about chemistry
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh
It’s all about chemistry (sweet Pacific scenes)
It’s all about chemistry
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh
