Science Geek Like Me

This parody (written by Greg Crowther) is sung to the tune of "Loser Like Me" (written by Adam Anders, Peer Astrom, Savan Kotecha, Max Martin, and Shellback).


Lyrics

Yeah, you may think that I'm a zero.
But hey, I can party overtime
Putting research into rhyme.
You may say that I'm a freak show. (I don't care.)
But hey, there are many more like me
Who sing about biology.

PRE-CHORUS:
All of the dirt you've been throwin' my way --
It ain't so hard to take. That's right.
'Cause I know one day you'll be screamin' my name,
And I'll just look away. Thatís right.

CHORUS:
Just go ahead and hate on me and run your mouth
So everyone can hear.
Hit me with the worst you got and knock me down.
Baby, I donít care.
Keep it up and soon enough you'll figure out
You wanna be, you wanna be
A science geek like me!
A science geek like me!

Everybody needs to know some science.
Hey, you don't need a PhD
To do a little chemistry.
What if we all formed a new alliance,
Serenading data and
Helping others understand?

PRE-CHORUS

CHORUS

Science should be one big tent.
What kind of project will you present?
Labwork? Models? Creative writing?
Which format is most inviting?
Global health with SeaVuria,
From over there to over here?
Dancing, teaching, website builds?
So many ways to show your skills!

CHORUS


Comments

This song was written for and performed at the 2013 Student Bio Expo. The expo includes 13 different categories of projects: Art, Career Pathways, Creative Writing, Drama & Dance, Journalism, Lab Research, Molecular Modeling, Multimedia, Music, SeaVuria, SMART Teams, Teaching, and Websites; accordingly, this song is addressed to critics of nontraditional approaches to science education. The lyrics are quite similar to those of "Loser Like Me" in order to retain the "proud underdog" flavor of that song.
