The Lyrics

This is a parody of the 1988 song “Simply Irresistible” by Robert Palmer. My parody is about a scientist who has made an earth-shaking, revolutionary discovery. He doesn’t know where his discovery will lead, but he knows that the world is no longer predictable according to the old model.
How can it be admissible?
It upturns every principle
This kind of data’s mythical
The results are so atypical

The data’s out of range
It’s such a big change
I have to retest because
The results are so strange

It used to make sense to me
But now the world is
Simply unpredictable
Simply unpredictable

The data is so powerful
It’s simply unavoidable
The trend is irreversible
The graph is unbelievable

It breaks the natural law
And it leaves me in awe
I deserve the applause
I’m a genius because

It used to make sense to me
But now the world is
Simply unpredictable
Simply unpredictable

Simply unpredictable
(It’s so wild, I can’t believe my eyes)
Simply unpredictable
(It’s all mine, I’ll win the Nobel Prize)

It’s unavoidable
I’m walking down the hall
It gives me emotions
That I never felt before
I’m overturning theories
I’m breaking every law

Simply unpredictable
(It’s so wild, I can’t believe my eyes)
Simply unpredictable
(It’s all mine, I’ll win the Nobel Prize)

My methods are repeatable
The proof is irrefutable
It was completely inadmissible
But now it’s irreversible

The data’s out of range
It’s such a big change
I have to retest because
The results are so strange

It used to make sense to me
But now the world is
Simply unpredictable
Simply unpredictable

Simply unpredictable
(It’s so wild, I can’t believe my eyes)
Simply unpredictable
(It’s all mine, I’ll win the Nobel Prize)
Simply unpredictable
(It’s so wild, I can’t believe my eyes)
Simply unpredictable
(It’s all mine, I’ll win the Nobel Prize)

I thought this was going to be about Donald Trump's mouth. But this is fine.

I thought this was going to be about the dems' next crooked scheme, to de-legitimize the election results. But this is fine. 4s
