myDNA

Young man, in Biology class

I said young man, I know you just want to pass,

But the girls will, want to unzip your jeans,

When you understand these proteins.

Trust me, theres just so much you can know

Answer questions, such as Why do I grow?

Its all in there, and in expanding your mind

Youll love every single enzyme

 

 

It's fun to learn about my DNA (2x)

It codes everything

From whether you feel joy

To if you are a girl or boy

Deoxyribonucleic acid (2x) [scansion whaaaaat?]

It codes for every gene

Yeah its a pretty big deal

Every matching pair of alleles

 

All this info, wrapped up tight in your cells

When unravelled, you will find that it spells

Your whole being, with A, T, C and G

Spelling with four letters, easy! // It's encoded in your body

You may want, to be a basketball star, 

But your genes say, you will not grow that far

And there's nothing, nothing that you can do,

Cause your genes decide it for you

 

It's fun to learn about my DNA (2x)

It made everything

For making you feel joy

To if youre a girl or boy

Thank your parents for your DNA (2x)

It codes for every gene

Yeah its a pretty big deal

Every matching pair of alleles

 

There is, simply so much to learn,

because science, is what makes the world turn

There are four types of nucleotides // I thought why learn about nucleotides?

Or that the double helix divides

I found, researching polysomy // But I found...

Chromosome pairs, well I've got 23

And simply, thanks to my DNA

It was why I was born this way

 

 

And weve just got to thank our DNA (2x)

(Miscellaneous things about DNA here)


(Lady Gaga): Same DNA... But born this way...

Young man, there's no need to feel down.

I said, young man, pick yourself off the ground. 

I said, young man, 'cause you're in a new town 

There's no need to be unhappy.

Young man, there's a place you can go. 

I said, young man, when you're short on your dough. 

You can stay there, and I'm sure you will find 

Many ways to have a good time. 



Its fun to stay at the YMCA (2x) 

They have everything

For you men to enjoy,

You can hang out with all the boys ... 

Its fun to stay at the YMCA (2x) 

You can get yourself cleaned, 

You can have a good meal, 

You can do whatever you feel ... 


Young man, are you listening to me? 

I said, young man, what do you want to be? 

I said, young man, you can make real your dreams. 

But you got to know this one thing! 

No man does it all by himself. 

I said, young man, put your pride on the shelf, 

And just go there, to the YMCA

I'm sure they can help you today. 



Its fun to stay at the YMCA (2x)

They have everything 

For you men to enjoy, 

You can hang out with all the boys ... 

Its fun to stay at the YMCA (2x). 

You can get yourself cleaned, 

You can have a good meal, 

You can do whatever you feel ... 



Young man, I was once in your shoes.
 

I said, I was down and out with the blues. 

I felt no man cared if I were alive. 

I felt the whole world was so tight ... 

That's when someone came up to me, 

And said, young man, take a walk up the street. 

There's a place there called the y.m.c.a. 

They can start you back on your way.


It’s fun to stay the the YMCA (2x)

Young man, young man

Are you listening to me

I said young man, young man

What do you want to be?
