Knockin' On Kevin's Door

This parody (written by Greg Crowther) is sung to the tune of "Knockin' On Heaven's Door" (written and performed by Bob Dylan).


Lyrics

Take this draft away from me;
I can't revise it any more.
It's too convoluted to believe;
I guess I'll go knock on Kevin's door.

CHORUS:
Knock knock knockin' on Kevin's door.
Knock knock knockin' on Kevin's door.
Knock knock knockin' on Kevin's door.
Knock knock knockin' on Kevin's door.

Put that hypothesis in the ground;
It's not predictive any more.
We'll publish in a journal of no renown
And pray for mercy from the science lords.

CHORUS


Comments

Scientific research can be frustrating, particularly for young people used to "cookbook" labs that almost always work. It's critical to have an adviser or mentor who can offer advice and put things in perspective.

My primary adviser in graduate school was Kevin Conley, and I knocked on his office door quite frequently.
