Sometimes I Wonder

Lyrics and Performance by Vicki Young
Melody: "Somebody's Knocking"

Sometimes I wonder, which should I drink?

Should I choose ounces or liters, I think.

It seems confusing; I have to decide

Exactly which should I buy?


And then I wonder about grams of fat.

What is the meaning, exactly what's that?

There is a system to measure this way.

We'd better metricize today.


I think they figured a much better way

To measure things we use every day, worldwide.

It's based upon the powers of ten;

It's really easy to remember it when we've tried.


Sometimes I wonder, will Americans try

To work with others to find out why

The metric system is coming on strong.

Can all others be wrong?

Sometimes I wonder...
