UNIVERSAL HISTORY (THE BIG BANG) (words & music by A. Marscher ©2000)
1. Heat was incredibly intense, it was unimaginably dense, humans can make no sense of it in familiar terms
Phase change caused inflation beyond imagination, particles' transmutation constantly occurred
No longer quite so hot, collisions then could not create gluons on the spot, strong force became distinct
Protons and neutrons were there, electron-positron pairs very soon disappeared, antimatter's nearly extinct
Quarks and gluons, electrons, protons, neutrons and force fields, perhaps some dark axions
Our ultimate ancestors, that's how we began in a hot primoridal soup they call the BIG BANG!!
2. Temperature became lower, collisions became slower, energy fell to where the strong force could now bind
Neutrons stuck to protons, becoming nucleons, the cores of simple atoms had been synthesized
The neutrinos and the photons outnumbered the electrons, neutrons and the protons by a billion to one
Expansion continued cooling, gravity's incessant pulling caused matter to start pooling into large, massive clumps
Atoms combined, photons now roam free, now we find stars and galaxies
Planets and moons, and you and me . . . this is our spectacular history!
