Chromosomes! To the Tune of Kodachrome


To the tune of Kodachrome, by Paul Simon

Chromosomes!
They give us just two genders
That’s true despite all the benders
Tryin to twist an X into a Y, oh yeah!
If you’ve got an X Y combo
Face it you’ll never be a mom so
Guess that makes all that talkin’ just a play.  

When I think back on the few facts I learned in high school. 
True I had a good time through it all. 
Seems like my lack of education hasn’t hurt me none,
Cause I could read my science in study hall.

Chromosomes!
They give us just two genders
That’s true despite all the benders
Tryin to twist an X into a Y, oh yeah!
If you’ve got an X Y combo
Face it you’ll never be a mom so
Guess that makes all that talkin’ just a play.  

If I took all the girls I knew when I was single
And they ate all those hormones night and day
I know they’d never match a dude says he’s a lady
In the mile or thousand yard relay. 

Chromosomes! (Repeat Chorus) 

Mama can’t take my chromosomes
Daddy can’t take my chromosomes
School can’t take my chromosomes away. 
The left can’t take my chromosomes
Leave my genes and trust your own
Mama can’t take my chromosomes away. 
(Repeat until you get it)
