The Lyrics

To anyone who ever wondered what "PhD" really stands for...
I would aim to get a dozen degrees
Proving to the world all my expertise
But they always ask too much in exams
So I'll write off and get a doctorate
That's right I'll take a doctorate, 'cause I know

It's piled higher and deeper
All that I know is piled higher and deeper

But when it come to knowing more about less
Knowing everything 'bout nothing is best
And I know that I will hit pay dirt
When I'm seen as the world's leading expert
Not sure which discipline I will try
The chiropody of earthworms or of snails
Maybe do ho-womeopathy, maybe no...

It's piled higher and deeper
That's how it goes: it's piled higher and deeper

But when it come to what to study I'm not
Sure whether a good subject is "snot"
Or the dialogue in "Princess Bride"
Or studying vacuums to see what's inside
Would that make me vacuous?
Nutritionist? No, that would be insane...
Baby I'll study pop stars' brains but I know

It's piled higher and deeper
All that I know is piled higher and deeper

When it come to knowing more about less
So a PhD - just right, I confess...

I just figured that in your case it stood for Parody Hilarity Doctor.

Studying vacuums to see what's inside sounds like a worthwhile occupation to me :-) The usual Alexander brilliance here. 555

I always wondered that, now I just gotta figure out how to use my new knowledge. :-)

PhD means you spent so many years in college and took so many post graduate courses - but common sense 101 isn't one of them.

PHD in this case means Pretty Hilarious Ditty
