A small piece of sodium which lived in a test tube fell in love with a Bunsen burner.
"Oh Bunsen, my flame. I melt whenever I see you . . .", the sodium pined.

Red, Red, Robin Comes Bob, Bob, Bobbin' Along
Words and Music by Harry M. Woods, 1946
(04 Nov 1896 - 14 Jan 1970)
When the red, red, robin
Comes bob, bob, bobbin'
There'll be no more sobbin'
When he starts throbbin'
His old sweet song.
Wake up, wake up you sleepy head,
Get up, get up, get out of bed,
Cheer up, cheer up, the sun is red,
Live, love, laugh and be happy.
What if I've been blue,
Now I'm walkin' through
Fields of flow'rs,
Rain may glisten
But still I listen
For hours and hours.
I'm just a kid again, doin' what I did again,
Singing a song,
When the red, red,robin
Comes bob, bob, bobbin' along.
