Lyrics

You really really really really really really gotta love science
Science is the way we discover what the world’s about
From Einsteins theories to Newton’s laws… from Schrodinger’s cat to Pavlov’s dog, !
You gotta agree with me there is nothing like science!

It wasn’t all that long ago they said the world was flat
But then came Nick Copernicus, who proved it ain’t like that
He ushered in a brand new age, exploring became all the rage
All because that wise old sage proclaimed:

Repeat Chorus

Just one hundred years ago, one faced this truth with dread…
Step one: you caught some bad disease; Step two: you wound up dead
But Fleming, Salk and Lou Pasteur, discovered how to find the cures
That let us live our lives secure and strong…
If they were here they’d sing for sure this song:

Repeat Chorus

Davy gave us batteries and Bakeland gave us plastic
The Curies, one could say, made radioactivity fantastic
Newton was inspired when he saw that apple landing
Hubble, he looked up and saw a universe expanding

To learn about anatomy, Vesalius had to slice
Then Roentgen gave us x-rays which was really much more nice
Mendel mixed some peas to make a mealtime solution
Darwin took a cruise and then discovered evolution!

Crick and Watson figured out what makes up DNA
If all your gadgets work you ought to thank Mike Farrady
Early life was charted by Brunet, Johnson and Leaky
And Einstein was just awesome, relativity-ly speaking

It’s really hard to comprehend the truths that science tells…
From the grandeur of the Universe; to the workings of a cell…
And so, I think, for all of these fortuitous discoveries
Let’s thank those who clearly seized their day…
For breakthroughs they have made along the way…
I think, at least, we really ought to say…

You really really really really really really gotta love science
Science is the way we discover what the world’s about
From Einsteins theories to Newton’s laws…
From Schrodinger’s cat to Pavlov’s dog,
You gotta agree with me there is nothing like science!

So you should thank any scientist you happen to know
If your refrigerator works and you don’t have polio
You gotta agree with me there is nothing like science!
