My roommate Nicole loves science, and making songs about scientific things. Here is her amazing duet with David Burchfield.

You're An Egg, Forever (Lyrics):

There's no sperm in the infundibulum

And that's where it would be

If the hen and the rooster had mated.

And it might be hard to say

But it's not hard to see

That your future is already fated.

So you ask me little oocyte,

What will become of you?

And what I have to say is hard,

Although it's true...

Because...

Chorus:

You're an egg, you're an egg

And that's all you'll ever be

It's your one true calling,

Your final destiny

And wouldn't it be great if sperm came

To the infindibulum today?

But in 15 short minutes you're movin onto

The magnum, anyway.

Sperm or not you must put on your shell

In the isthmus where two membranes

Are formed

And in the uterus you'll get albumen,

The egg-white

Then it's certain my friend you'll be warmed

You still ask me little oocyte,

What will become of you?

Even after your shell is on

It's still true

Chorus:

You're an egg, you're an egg

And that's all you'll ever be

It's your one true calling

Your one destiny

You say "I am complete! Calcium Carbonate and all"

But sadly, dear little one,

All other development is stalled

Chorus:

Yes you're an egg you're an egg

And that's all you'll ever be

It's your one true calling

Your FINAL destiny

And I know you want to love

With a love so warm

But your heart, with the rest of your organs

Will never form
