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...
