The Lyrics

Dr. Peter Venkman is asking questions to a librarian who saw a ghost in the catacombs of the library. Venkman later asks an unrelated question, and responds to someone by saying.....
PETER: [Acapella]
Back off man I'm a scientist
"Back off man I'm a scientist!"
And I hope to be a GB
When they first exiiiiiiist
[Acapella ends]

It is an evil potion
when you turn her tender eyes to me
As sane as a mental patient
With every ghost you claim to see
Mmm - Back off man I'm a scientist
"Back off man I'm a scientist!"
And I hope to be a GB ("Whatever that is)
When I wear a proton pack
"Back off man, I'm a scientist - scientist!"
Egon collects chemicals
"Back off man, I'm a scientist - scientist!"

I think I would give this song 4-5 points on trying to make it sound great , and the problem is Chris, why do you say you want to be a GB if you have no idea what it is!?
