Yasume – Sing The Noises lyrics

Subject: Song parody: thesis

(Lord knows where this comes from! But it's fun)
[ tune of "I've been working on the Railroad" ]

(tune: I've been working on the railroad)

I've been working on my thesis
19 hours a day...
I've been working on my thesis
Wasting all my youth away...
I hear my committee mumbling
Questions large and small
Can't you hear them all a-shouting
"Publish by the fall!"

Data won't you show
Data won't you show
Data won't you show something new-ew-ew
Data won't you show
Data won't you show
Data won't you show something new.

Someone's been fiddling with my data
Someone's been feeling pretty blue-oo-oo
Someone's been playing with the numbers
Now they show something new!

Fee-fie fiddle away
Fee-fie fudge fudge fay
Fee-fie twiddle tweak twee
I'll get my Ph. D.!
