Hey you, can you tell me about the metric system?
Is it true that using metric's all right?
Everybody all around the world is using the metric system
So listen up boys and girls let's catch up with them
Length volume, capacity, mass, and the intensity that a light has.
The metric system is your friend so use it time and time again
Let's say you're taking a measurement, before you start to do it
You've got to first determine the correct base unit
To measure length or distance the meter is real cool…
l/100th of a meter is called a centimeter…
Kilometers are what we use to measure distance across the nation….
The metric system is so cool because it follows the decimal system
That means everything changes by multiples of 10
Just like our numbers and our money…
Down here on the earth at the level of the sea
We refer to the mass of an object as its weight…
Capacity's how much a container holds,
like a cup or the gas tank in a Rolls…
There are other units in the metric system,
So keep on learning, and remember the metric system's all right!
