The Plate Tectonics Carol (to the tune of “Deck the Halls)

Sing we now of plate tectonics, Fa la la la la, la la, la la.
Mount Redoubt sings low harmonics, Fa la la la la, la la, la la.
Pangea and oceans spacious, Fa la la, Fa la la, la, la, la.
Split apart in the Cretaceous, Fa la la la la, la la, la la.

South Pacific Islands plaster, Fa la la la la, la la, la la.
Mountains up against Alaska, Fa la la la la, la la, la la..
Fast the Kula plate dives under, Fa la la, Fa la la, la, la, la.
Rising in volcanic thunder, Fa la la la la, la la, la la.

Whence Alaska’s northern highlands? Fa la la la la, la la, la la.
Asia, or Canadian Islands? Fa la la la la, la la, la la.
California’s jolting toward us, Fa la la, Fa la la, la, la, la.
What a quake whene’er they board us, Fa la la la la, la la, la la.

The plate tectonics is accurate. Enjoy!
