Verse 1:
A ray of light is the fastest thing
in the universe
You can't get much faster than that
And gravity holds it all together
You can't get much heavier than that
Chorus:
Albert E. was right
Gravity bends light
E = mc squared
He solved a mystery
With relativity
E = mc squared

Verse 2:
Imagine an astronaut blasts off from
Earth to travel fast in outer space
Leaving behind his twin brother
He's in for a surprise to come back to the human race
And find he's much older than his twin brother
Chorus:
Albert E. was right
Gravity bends light
E = mc squared
He solved a mystery
With relativity
E = mc squared
Ooo, ooo, E = mc squared
Ooo, ooo, E = mc squared

Bridge:
Einstein was so elated
Space and time were related
He was the first to see
Mass could turn into energy
But what will we do with this knowledge
Scientists learn in college?
What will we use it for?
Will it be peace or war?

Verse 3:
A ray of light is the fastest thing
in the universe
Einstein said you can't get much faster than that
But not even light can escape from a black hole trap
Now, you can't get much heavier than that
Chorus:
Albert E. was right
Gravity bends light
E = mc squared
He solved a mystery
With relativity
E = mc squared
Ooo, ooo, E = mc squared
Ooo, ooo, E = mc squared

Ending:
Time slows down (E = mc squared)
Time slows down (E = mc squared)
Time slows down (E = mc squared)
When you reach the speed of light (E = mc squared)
As we reach the speed of light
E = mc squared = mc squared = mc squared
(spoken) E = mc squared
