Organic Chemistry

This parody (written by Greg Crowther) is sung to the tune of "Breakfast At Tiffany's" (written and performed by Deep Blue Something).


Lyrics

You say, "What these two atoms have in common
Is this shared pair of electrons
To keep them from falling apart."
You say, "A bond is formed between them --
A covalent bond connects them --
Now I wonder where I learned that."

CHORUS:
And I said, "What about Organic Chemistry?"
She said, "I think I remember the class,
And, as I recall, I think we both kinda liked it."
And I said, "Well, I can tell that you passed."

"I see," she said. "So we've got this carbon compound
Of unknown chemical structure
With an unknown set of bonds."
"These bonds," she said -- "if you want to detect them,
you should take an IR spectrum.
I once had a lab like that."

CHORUS

You say, "What these two atoms have in common
Is this shared pair of electrons
To keep them from falling apart."
You say, "A bond is formed between them --
A covalent bond connects them --
Now I wonder where I learned that."

Many of us have fond memories of taking organic chemistry. Here's one example.
