San Francisco 1911 the thirteenth of June,

Was when a scientist was born who later shook up a storm.

In 1934 he obtained a grasp’s diploma,

And in 1936 he earned a P.H.D.

He discovered proof of an asteroid within the iridium layer,

And of cosmic rays, he was a serious surveyor.”

“Like one, the historical past of all this – it began within the time of the Aztecs,

They might have a good time and honor the lifeless, and Mexico stored the development

Now let’s preserve transferring, there’s a lot left to see.

Over there you see all these treats? They’re for the lifeless –

The meals they favored earlier than the tip,
