K IS FOR KNOWLEDGE

SCIENTISTS DON'T KARAOKE

words by John Hinton

Scientists don't karaoke
They don't do the hokey-cokey
They're not copycats
They don't copy facts
They don't just say
Okey-dokey

Scientists they go to college
Where they learn to seek new knowledge
When they find it
They don't mind it
If others make sure that their knowledge is demolished

Science advances
By taking chances
Not by copying another person's dances
Scientists they don't assume they know it all
They know that in the scheme of things the part they play is small

How do we know that we know what we know?
Well, we get a hypothesis and give it a go.
In science, knowledge is a slippery fish:
A scientist only ever knows-ish.
