And lithium (Li2CO3) to balance your moods
Use calcium chloride (CaCl2) to keep things dry
And rubidium (RbNO3) for purple on the 4th of July.
Use epsom salts (MgSO47H20) to soak your feet
And if you're sore, bath salts (MgSO4) are sweet!
Rock salt (NaCl) helps with driveways and ice creams
Sodium nitrate (NaNO3) grows roses like dreams.
Saltpeter (KNO3) is needed to keep guns equipped
Preserving salamis and keeping pants zipped!
So whatever the problem, whatever the fault
It's easy to fix it--add a big dash of salt!
