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

Ah, 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 lookin' 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

Ah, 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

Ah, all about chemistry
Won't you show me everything you know?
Ah, wonder what you do to me
Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Ah, 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
