Parody Song Title:

"Darwin's Finches"

Parody Written by:

Ethan Mawyer

The Lyrics

Charles saw, finches and compared them
For many weeks yeah
Found his, results and he shared them
About their beaks yeah
One type has a beak that's stronger
Best for survival
Other island all the beaks are longer
To beat strong beaked rivals

Darwin, said each finch adapted
A revolution
And many other people laughed at
His ¨evolution¨
Darwin said that humans came from primates
Not from god then
The church said that, darwin's ideas were lie-based
Some states outlawed them

In the state of Tennessee
The officials said ¨you must listen to me
The human race came from 'ole Adam and Eve and
We don't come from finches, monkeys or the trees
We don't come from finches, monkeys or the trees

So John Scopes taught his students Darwin
Was put on trial
Was higher profile than he bargained -
Darrow and Bryan
John Scopes had to pay some dollars
Was kinda blue, yeah
Cause of him, Darwin's taught by scholars
To me and you, yeah

This would've been a nice extra credit thing for biology - but i'm never taking it ever again.

I must say Tone-def, this is the best parody about Darwin and evolution that I've ever seen

This beats every Bill Nye science-related song parody I've ever heard! (Yes, even the "Smells Like Teen Spirit" one about air pressure.) I have no life.
