Scientific State of Mind

words by Greg Crowther;
music by Greg Crowther and David Newman


Lyrics

The earth goes 'round the sun, but can you prove it?
This desk has chewing gum; what will remove it?

I don't know, but I have a guess,
And I'll test my hypothesis....

Life can be confusing; science makes it clearer.
When you're seeking answers, science brings them nearer.
You don't need a lab coat or big goggles all the time;
Just get into the data and into a scientific state of mind.

My bike may start to rust; can I prevent that?
Our bones need phosphorus; how do we get that?

I don't know, but I have a guess,
And I'll test my hypothesis....

Life can be confusing; science makes it clearer,
Like looking through a telescope or looking in a mirror.
You have lots of questions and we don't know what you'll find,
So get into the data and into a scientific state of mind.

I have a mobile phone; does it cause cancer?
Is this a chicken bone ... or something fancier?

I don't know, but I have a guess,
And I'll test my hypothesis....

Life can be confusing; science makes it clearer.
When you're seeking answers, science brings them nearer.
You don't need a lab coat or big goggles all the time;
Just get into the data and into a scientific state of mind.
