Earth Science Chapter 10 Song Lyrics

 

The Breakdown of Rock Bram Barker 2010

 

(A Song About Erosion & Mechanical & Chemical Weathering)



I'm working too hard-Brakdown of Rock comming soon.

 

Don't you know that weathering is
when rocks break down into smaller pieces
from ocean beds to the mountain tops
weathering is the breakdown of rock!

Two types of weathering exist
mechanical and chemical
that is why the rock cycle can’t be stopped
‘cos weathering is the breakdown of rock!

Yeah weathering is the breakdown of rock!

Mechanical weathering
is the breakdown of rock by physical means
Ice, wind, water, and gravity,
strike and push ‘til the rock breaks free

Wind and water through abrasion
Ice breaks rock through expansion
Plants and animals dig into soil
to cause erosion

It’s the breakdown of rock!

Chemical weathering is when
water, air, or acid rain
split free tiny molecules
dissolving the rock away little by little

It’s the breakdown of rock!
Yeah weathering is the breakdown of rock!

(Weathering)

Rocks and abrasion, rust oxidation

Top soil erosion, crops in rotation

Rocks and abrasion, an O2 reaction

we call oxidation.

It’s the breakdown of rock!
