andygetch: @metalfoot provided the lyrics and I put it to music using the one instrument we have in common, a Rogue mandolin.
Lyrics by Alex Klages
[G] I’d love an electric car
[C] Powered quite naturally
[D] From an array of little plants
[C] Converting sunlight energy
[D] I wonder why it's such a challenge
[C] To make an environmentally friendly
[G] And yet affordable large-scale solar cell?
[D] After all, don't the plants and trees
[C] Use photosynthesis and CO2 fixation
[G] To generate energy in a way that's simply swell?
[D] I know the science stuff and [E4] how
[C] Electricity works, the need for [C6] ionic
[G] Exchange and magnetic [Cadd9/G] fields
[D] I know all of that and yet somehow
[C] Part of my mind still wishes that
[G] There were nicer ways to get energetic yields
