"We Three Laws"

(sung to "We three Kings")

by Doug Ferguson

We three laws of Newton are
Bearing theories we affect afar
Fields, inertian, mass, and motion
Following gravity are

Black Hole-oh
Theories of wonder
theories of might
Theories invented by someone so bright
Forward leading
Still achieving
Guide us through thy perfect insight

The first law of Newton am I
At constant speed or rest I lie
On a straight line unless compelled
To change thy state by force


The second law of Newton is me
A force acts upon a mass you see
Speed direction is proportional
While inversely to the mass


The third law of Newton I be
For every action is not alone
Equal reaction does exist
Opposite the first
