Got a job at the university
Testing answers not yet seen
We need empirical evidence to
Conclude my theory is correct
Sometimes I feel like the rat lab
Hardly getting out of the cage &
When I do they keep injecting me
Caught up for tenure in this race
Unknown answers will cure cancer
As we work away to "Tiny Dancer"
We use Petri dishes for cymbals
Music inspires my university job
Maybe I'll change your world
And you'll remember me in mine
I hope to discover it in my lifetime
Riveting science made by design
For all of you walking sidewalks
I see you. I feel you. I love you.
And I'm geeked like a dog in heat
Pursuing knowledge like it's tail
I live in a hotel room & if I fail
I'm gonna have a mighty big bill
And when I win I'll buy a house
Rescuing my favorite lab mouse
