The Lyrics

A scientist wishes to science...but how can one science without materials?
I do science ju-ust for fu-un
But inside the lab is where I'm stu-uck
Supplies are runnin' thi-in
See, I specialise in geneti-ics, yeah

I need a sample of DNA
I've got creatu-u-u-ures to create, ooh
So I need a sample of DNA
Got to spli-i-i-i-ice

I'm not maki-i-in' a monste-er
Graftin' wings to pigs, okay
At least I would be if not fo-or
I've got no sources and the door's ja-ammed, lame

So-o I need lots of samples of DNA
Swear I orde-e-e-ered yesterday, ooh
I need some samples of DNA
Need to spli-i-i-i-ice

This day's gonna be a wa-a-a-aste
Island full of life I can't tai-aint
I guess all that's left is to drink up this boo-ooze
Man, that's got a real funky taste, wait
I can feel shifts in my bones
I'm not that drunk, where did that label go-o? Oh dear
The writin' he-ere says "doe-oe"
I feel like a comple-ete dope now

I did have some samples of DNA
Mixed up with bee-ee-ee-eer by mistake, ooh-wee
And now my code has been rearranged
Well, that bi-i-i-i-ites

That's what happens when you drink and science, people. Horrible transmogrification happens.
