The Lyrics

Francis Crick is dead... *sniffles*. My boyfriend couldn't empathise with me, so I told him to imagine that Timothy Leary had just died. He got it :) With any luck, ol' Tim won't mind me borrowing his song. Incidentally, Francis Crick said he couldn't remember ever boasting "We've discovered the secret of life" in the pub after discovering the structure of DNA.
Here come that Francis, he work moving up slowly
He see haemoglobin, he got X-ray crystals
He learn fast biology
But took seventeen years to gain a Ph.D.

He go to Strangeways, he dump the physics
He meet Jimmy Watson, he find double helix
He say, "It make you, it make me"
Boasting in the Eagle, Francis Crick you do see
It's the secret of life, so says he

He Nobel prized it, he work on different structures
He got work with Brenner, he look into proteins,
He propose a code that's comma-free
Read the books he's written all those hypotheses
It's the secret of life, so says he

He ask why conscious, he madly pursuing
He define a problem, he sometimes sound crazy
He say brains go cleaning out with dreams
But never found the secret of neuroanatomy
What's the secret of us, so ask he

This one is interesting. Lots of nice big scientific words fitting into they lyrics rather snuggly. Well done, Indigo.

The last verse is excellent, the first unjust to Crick - what about the war work in between? But 'Come Together' is a fun piece that I much enjoyed. I wish to use it in my biography of Crick. Who is Sweet Indigo? I need permission?

I think it's very good as well (so much so I told Bob Olby all about it) but somehow I don't think Crick would have approved of it! Are you thinking of writing something similar for James Watson and if so, which "Beatles" song would it be a parody of? Martin D. Packer

"Sweet Indigo, FRANCIS CRICK would definately have approved as he was a big Beatles fan, especially "Sergeant Pepper" and The White Album!! Do keep in touch (if possible) : regards, Martin
