X IS FOR X-RAY

UVWX part 4

words and music by John Hinton

UVis not the only type of light
With a wavelength that's too long or short for human sight,
And the one I'm gonna talk about next
Is the only word in science that starts with an X,

And that's the X-ray,
Discovered by Röntgen in 1895,
Since when it's kept a lot of lucky people alive,

Because the X-ray
Can penetrate human skin,
Revealing any abnormalities therein.

So if you're looking for a way
Of finding out where you've been shot,
What you need is an X-Ray,
Because X marks the spot
