The Lyrics

The best of Finnish girls and boys, come in the HUT
and finest of the youth can be found at the Chemistry -
For the fascinating stuff and science that we share,
and the lab'ratory studies and experiments we dare

Now Bertie came with eagerness and will to study here
He aim-ed for postgraduate and 'cademic career
He liked the labs and lectures too,
and made as Doctor - '92
It makes a fella proud to be a chemist!

When Pete was only in the seventh grade, he knew he wanted be
an engineer who'd master all the technicalities
He's at home with the welding gear
just as much as with his 'puter
It makes a fella proud to be a chemist!

After Katie got through basic courses, she was one
Who's a chemist through and through when they were done.
She's party girl of coolest class
and everyone just loved that lass
A good humour girl, an leader, she had fun!.

Now Tim's an intellectual, he's nuber one of geeks
He likes the deep mathematics, calculus and matrixes
He knows physical chemistry
he's familiar with the entropy
It makes a fella proud to be a chemist!

Now Sue's a steeler's daughter, her old man's an engineer
She made good friends with Helen who's from oiler family
They both love rock and organics,
Sue plays bass, Helen on drumsticks -
It makes a fella proud to be a chemist!

Bob came here from the army where he liked to play the war
He served his tour of duty, he's Lieutenant now so far
He likes to cook the TNT
and prepare nitroglycerine -
It makes a fella proud to be a chemist!

Our blonde Tommy is the up-and-coming type.
Played with chemistry kit as boy you just can bet.
He's party guy and wants a thrill -
he makes white lightning with his still
But he hasn't got enough ideal plates yet.

Now Johnny has a handicap to cope with, sad to tell.
He's leader type and he doesn't master science very well
But he is frat boy and we know
he one day will be CEO -
It makes a fella proud to be,
Why, as a teen I knew to be,
What luck to be allowed to be
A chemist! (Kaboom!)
This is my version of the song. It describes me and some of my old college mates. Our names have been Anglified
