I See the Light
Science Song Lyrics and Sound Clip
J.P. Taylor

This song is available on J.P. Taylor's Singin' Songs of Science 3.

It’s not so common knowledge that Isaac Newton did the groundbreaking work with optics, and discovered that white light can be split into the colors of the rainbow.  Here’s an upbeat song to reinforce the names of the colors and celebrate the Newton’s discovery. 

It was Isaac Newton
Working in his lab       
With just a piece of glass       
He proved an idea he had      
That white light’s not just bright
It’s a rainbow when you bend it right
And he even bent it back
To white again
(and I’ll bet he said . . .)

I see the light
And all the colors of the rainbow
Red, orange, and yellow
Green, blue, and violet, too
Light might look white
But with a prism you won’t think so
There’s red, orange, and yellow      
Green, blue, and violet, too

Now you can make a rainbow
Without a piece of glass
You could do it with a garden hose
While you’re watering the grass     
Just spray a fan of drops in the air
And make sure the sun’s behind you there
And you’ll see it clear as day just like Newton did

(Chorus 2X)
