The Lyrics

On the surface, this would not seem to be a parody making fun of that loser, Donald Trump. But it would make him angry, because it celebrates not just thought, but science.
(instrumental opening)

Galileo charmed
when on lens ‘splayed.
Under his breath whispered, Papal,
“Eppur si muove.”

Sir Isaac, he changed
our whole world around
from what came in his mind
when he saw an apple falling onto the ground.

They told me what I see
when I look in the skies.
It is true, baby:
They were so brilliant, these guys.

Alexander called the name
of Watson on phone he’s makin’.
I saw somethin’ was X-rayed
on machine of Röntgen.

Albert tried so hard, baby
‘til he saw that E
Was the equal of m
Times the square of c.

They did it not for fame
or even for Nobel Prize.
It is true, baby:
They were so brilliant, these guys.

Now, look at Carl Sagan
struggling to explain cosmos right.
But after 34 years
Tyson updated tight.

I’m just a TV viewer.
I need explaining help.
I wanna know, is it Hawking I trust?
‘Cause I damn sure don’t trust myself.

But it was the Madame Curie
‘twas not outshined by man
but just don’t look too close
into the palm of her hand.

When he stood at the blast site
Oppenheimer knew he got it right.
but come the wee, wee hours
Maybe, baby
J. Robert cried.

So when you look, you see
sometimes they paid a price.
Seems to me, baby:
They were so brilliant, these guys.

Tonight, fusion is cold
and lost in the darkness of our lab.
God have mercy on the man
who’ll have to pay this tab.

(long instrumental close)

Hey, ever notice how Joe Bitin' looks like my dummy Walter? If only he had Walter's smarts...

That's two snappy come backs. One from Bitin' at 1st debate and now the same one from you. "C'mon man" at least be original.

Oppenheimer knew the meaning of what he had created, "We are destroyers of worlds". Then he gave that power to politicians.
