LYRICS (warning, close office door before singing along)

Young man, does your wife look away

When you tell her, all about work that day

Do your children, try to run off and play

When you talk a-bout endorphins

Young men, there’s a place you can go

Where they know of, DSLET and DAMGO

You get TIPP-PSI, for your delta K.O.

And you even get a free bag

 

Chorus:

It’s fun to be at the INRC

It’s fun to be at the INRC

Leave your family at home

And just come on your own

You can hang out with scientists

 

It’s fun to be at the INRC

It’s fun to be at the INRC

You can schmooze with the best

And forget all the rest

You can find out about your grants

 

Young man, do you want to be seen

I said young man, you just clone a new gene

Make a knockout, do a phenotype screen

And they’ll let you be a speaker

Subtypes, it’s the old-fashioned word

I said dimers, is the new sound I heard

But then Gav says, "It’s completely absurd"

"It’s just alternative splicing"

 

Chrous:

It’s fun to be at the INRC

It’s fun to be at the INRC

You can turn on your gene

You can say things obscene

You can hang out with Mary-Jeanne

 

It’s fun to be at the INRC

It’s fun to be at the INRC

You can show off your probe

And exchange a microbe

With a scientist from abroad

 

Young man, I was once in your shoes

I said I was, down and out with the blues

I felt no man, cared about my results

I could not get da-ta published

That’s when, Eddie came up to me

And said Yo man, check out INRC

It’s a place where, you can be understood

There’s no need to be on Prozac

 

Chrous:

It’s fun to be at the INRC

It’s fun to be at the INRC

You can learn about pain

While you alter your brain

You can pretend that you are sane

 

I-N-R-C

It’s fun to be at the INRC

You can meet all your friends

You can try to pretend

You’ve been doing science all week!
