The Lyrics

The parody lines within quotation-marks are meant to replace the original song's "Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo" and "Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo" lines...
(instrumental introduction, fast tempo)

"Thesis-defense time's here for you!"
"Time to show if you have a clue!"
"If you don't, no degree for you!"
"Show us what you can do!"

Thesis advisers fight with me
Thesis advisers fight, oh yeah
Thesis advisers fight with me
Thesis advisers fight

They don't care what my grades say
They think I'm some dumb yahoo
They don't care what my grades say
Thesis advisers fight, oh yeah
Thesis advisers fight

"Thesis-defense time's here for you!"
"Time to show us your best kung-fu!"
"We'll use our very best voodoo!"
"As we argue with you!"

Thesis advisers fight with me
Thesis advisers fight, oh yeah
Thesis advisers fight with me
Thesis advisers fight

They don't care what I may know
They think my IQ's zero
They don't care what I may know
Thesis advisers fight, oh yeah

(instrumental...slower tempo)

Coursework
At an end
Research
Notes all penned
My Ph.D's at hand
Dissertation's all planned
Thesis
Must defend

(instrumental...faster tempo resumes)

Thesis advisers fight with me
Thesis advisers fight, oh yeah
Thesis advisers fight with me
Thesis advisers fight

They're all jerks with crap for brains
They're all royal hemorrhoid pains
When their status I've obtained
I'll be the one who fights
OH YEAH

JD - Scienterrific! I'm a sucker for science parodies. Well done. Hey maybe we could get an album up using some of mine and some of yours on MP3. This rocks!

Thanks Guy! So you're thinking of a "Science Parody Album", eh? Sounds like a fun idea. I'm not a musician though, except for my singing voice...but I take your idea as a compliment...thanks again.

Makes me glad I never went to grad school. Little known fact: The original was done by (a later version of) the Byrds.

Thanks for the info, Steve - I must admit I didn't know that. I love the original song...it's an ingenious synthesis of head-bangin' hard-drivin' rock music with good ol' gospel.
Johnny D - November 16, 2003 - Report this comment
Steve, just to clarify my previous comment - when I said that I love the original song, I am referring to the hard-rock version by The Doobie Brothers. I haven't heard the version you mentioned (by the later version of The Byrds), but now you've got me curious...

Wow, this song pretty much describes my life right now, I'm glad to know that someone out there understands. Great parody!
