Grade 4 - "What's This?" Year End Performance

Here is Grade 4 performing their own rendition of the song, "What's This?", from the movie, The Nightmare Before Christmas.  Some of the 4th Grade students changed the lyrics to be about the curiosity, inquiries and progression of scientific understanding by Issac Newton and Galileo.  Enjoy!

What’s This? (SIS Grade 4 Newton/Galileo version)
lyrics by Beyza, Rui, Anisa, Busra and Mr. V

What’s this? What’s this?
There’s something very new
What’s this?
Discovery everywhere
What’s this?
I can’t believe my eyes
This is fantastic
Can I possibly learn more?
What’s this?

What’s this? What’s this?
There’s something moving there
What’s this?
An apple falling down
What’s this?
The trees are filled with apples falling
All of them hit something different
Can I possibly learn more?
What is this? What’s this?

There are balls all over here
And motion everywhere
Will the big ball knock ‘em down?
The small balls, they go where?

There’s a big ball over there
I can’t believe my eyes
When I throw the ball from one side
It’s making them fall down

Oh, look! What’s this?
Remember Newton’s Laws, they’re right!
I add a thing to them, inspired!
We’re gathering around to hear
What he will say about the world
What’s this?

What’s this?
Right here, I’ve got two different rocks.  Let’s try
To drop them from the top
And see?
If they fall at the same time
Could it be my guess was right?
I’ve just discovered something new
So, now correct me if I’m wrong
I got it right!  I got it right!
My hypothesis was really right!
What’s this?

Oh my, what now?
Saturn’s over here
But look, now it’s over there
I use my telescope to see the moving planets
And it seems that we are moving around the sun
What’s this?

The churches all say I’m wrong
But they’re just ignorant
Why don’t they just listen
‘Cause I know that I’m correct

Instead of hearing what I say
They always think they’re right
So instead I’ll just say sorry
But actually I’m right

The things I learned
Are all around my head, and so
I’ve never learned so much, before
This empty place inside of me is filling up
I simply cannot learn enough

I want to, oh, I want to
Oh, I want to know much more
I’ve got to know
I’ve got to know
The science of the world
What is this?
