Songs for the Jaundiced Ear
I am the very model of a scientific troubador, Although my voice suggests, to most, an urgent need to lube a door. Irreverent environment, and/or defiance in my genes, Led me to writing doggerel and songs of science in my teens. I picked up the guitar midway through college and eventually, Recorded songs I'd written over almost half a century. Now some are scientific, and some others are political, -itical, itical, Ah! There isn't an occasion for which I can't write a ditticle! I get invited 'round the world to lecture, but it's safe to say, I'd better not show up without an instrument that I can play, You haven't heard me on the air, or seen me on the tube before, But I'm the very model of a scientific troubador.
