Hey Oh, Galileo!

Song Lyrics and Sound Clip
J.P. Taylor


This song is available on J.P. Taylor's Singing' Songs of Science II

This song celebrates some of the discoveries and accomplishments of one of history’s most famous scientists (the telescope, pendulum, gravitation,  and solar system).

Way back in time in Italy.
It was the 16th and 17th century.
There was a guy who in time would be.
One of the greatest scientists in history.

What Galileo found out made people jump and shout.
It was all about the solar system.
He could prove it was the sun to the shock of everyone.
That was the center of our solar system.

Hey oh, Galileo, with that telescope up to your eye.
Hey oh, Galileo, what’d you see there up in the sky?

Now Galileo did experiments with all sorts of things.
He even watched and measured how a pendulum swings.
He watched with his telescope and then pretty soon.
He could see the planet Jupiter was circled by moons!

Hey oh, Galileo, looking at the pendulum swing.
Hey oh, Galileo, back and forth with the very same timing!

And Galileo did experiments to try and see.
If there was any difference in the gravity.
On heavy things and lighter things whatever they be.
When he dropped ‘em from a tower everyone could see.

Hey oh, Galileo, dropped those balls from the Pisa tower.
Hey oh, Galileo, they hit the ground with scientific power!

Hey oh, Galileo, with that telescope up to your eye.
Hey oh, Galileo, what’d you see there up in the sky.

Hey oh, Galileo, looking at the pendulum swing.
Hey oh, Galileo, back and forth with the same timing!
Hey oh, Galileo, dropped those balls from the Pisa tower.
Hey oh, Galileo, they hit the ground with scientific power!
Hey oh, Galileo, with that telescope up to your eye.
Man, you're my kind of guy!
