​Friction Happens

This song is by Bill Nye.

Ooh yeah, friction!

Listen to my voice and to my careful diction
Gonna tell you about a force that we call friction
It appears when one thing rubs against another
Like a comb across the head of your older brother

It slows down things that might be moving fast
It works in any solid, liquid, or gas

* (When things touch) When things touch
* (When things meet) When they meet
* Friction happens
* You're gonna make some heat
* Yeah yeah

* One thing about friction that can't be beat
* Changes energy of motion into heat
* Just rub two sticks together, then you'll see
* They're going to be warmer than they used to be

* Now you know friction is really nifty
* Without it every surface would be slippery

(When things touch) Things touch
(When things meet) You know they meet
Friction happens
(Make some heat) You know it's gonna make some heat
Yeah yeah

(When things touch) Things touch
(When things meet) And things meet
Friction happens
(Make some heat) And you just got to make some heat
