Adorable 3-Year-Old Helps You Remember the Elements
For the uninitiated, 'The Elements' is a song written in 1959 by musical humorist and mathematician Tom Lehrer, which recites the names of all the chemical elements on the periodic table. Actor Daniel Radcliffe famously sang it on a British chat show and helped introduce the song to a new generation. One such fan is three-year-old Rose, who first attempted to sing the catchy tune when she was just two.
A year later, she recites it again, but this time amazingly well (and adorably).
Wow, even three-year-olds are capable of making us adults look dumb these days. Tom Lehrer must be proud to know his song continues to live on thanks to the internet. And we're happy to know that Vanadium is part of the periodic table.
