Regeneration

This parody (written by Greg Crowther) is sung to the tune of "My Generation" (written by Pete Townshend and performed by The Who).


Lyrics

People try to put us down (talkin' 'bout regeneration)
Just because we're small and round (talkin' 'bout regeneration).
You think it's fun to break our butts (talkin' 'bout regeneration),
But we regrow the parts you cut (talkin' 'bout regeneration).
This is regeneration. This is regeneration, baby.

Hydra heads and lobster claws (talkin' 'bout regeneration) --
We all abide by Nature's laws (talkin' 'bout regeneration).
Precursor cell differentiation (talkin' 'bout regeneration)
Brings about regeneration (talkin' 'bout regeneration).
This is regeneration. This is regeneration, baby.



Comments

The narrator of this song is an earthworm. He discusses his ability to replace damaged or lost body parts, a trait he shares with organisms such as Hydra and lobsters.
