The Water Cycle

The water cycle 2x’s

The water cycle goes round and round
From the sea to the air and back to the ground

The water cycle has three different parts
And with evaporation it always starts,
The water cycle….

Evaporation is really neat, because it starts with the sun’s heat energy
The heat breaks the water molecules bonds apart
And that’s how the water cycle gets it start.

And then it flows, it flows, way up in the air
And then the water vapor flows way up there
But it can’t stay up there indefinitely, because as it rises it cools you see

The water cycle, it’s going round and round
The water cycle…

The water cycle, it’s going round and round,
From the sea to the air and back to the ground
The water cycle…

Now the water vapor is up in the sky
Soon it will condense before our eyes
Condensation forms clouds of different shapes,
The higher the vapor rises gives them different names.

Low cumulus clouds, are fluffy and white
While stratus clouds are like the blankets spread in the sky
And cirrus clouds are wispy ones up real high,
because they are made of small crystals of ice.

The water cycle, it’s going round and round
The water cycle…

The water cycle, it’s going round and round,
From the sea to the air and back to the ground
The water cycle…

Finally it falls back down from the sky
If you’re not very careful it’ll land in your eyes.
It can come down in many different ways
And when it does it begins to precipitate

The white pretty crystals fall down as snow
We call it rain when it’s liquid H2O
If it freezes on its way down, we call it sleet
These are three different forms and they’re all very neat

The water cycle, it’s going round and round
The water cycle…

The water cycle, it’s going round and round,
From the sea to the air and back to the ground
The water cycle…
