“RADON RAP SONG” Lyrics

You know, radiation is around us
But there is a type we can act on
That’s Radon, yeah, yeah that’s Radon

Detect to Protect to save your lungs
Just test for Radon and you can see
If air you breathe is Radon Clean

Can’t smell it, can’t taste it, can’t see it no
A silent killer this noble gas
Stays in your lungs for years

But Radon can be anywhere
Through cracks it seeps,
Through pipes, it leaks

Detect to Protect to save your lungs
Just test for Radon and you can see
If air you breathe is Radon Clean

Get your test kit ASAP
If your levels are high, don’t panic yet
‘Cause folks can help you fix it
A fan and a pipe, may do the trick

Detect to Protect to save your lungs
Just test for Radon and you can see
If air you breathe is Radon Clean

Detect to Protect to save your lungs
Just test for Radon and you can see
If air you breathe is Radon Clean
