Science Facts are Useful

Gatesy: Well, it doesn't take a genius to realise,
  Being good at school can be cool.
  Put on your lab coats, boffins rule!
   
Yon: (Stammering) Umm... umm... I'd actually rather you didn't use the word "boffin", 'cause if anything it means "having sex".
   
Tripod: There's nothing wrong with putting on your thinking cap,
  Though your social skills may be crap.
  You can impress with these cool facts:
   
Yon: That Playstation you're playing at - science made that!
Scod: That Ghettodeck you're rapping off the beats to - science made that too!
Gatesy: Without science, we wouldn't have cheap bathtub biker speed!
 
Tripod: Oh, science facts are useful,
  That's why they teach 'em to ya.
  Your teachers wouldn't screw ya,
  Don't be a fool,
  The science school is cool.
   
  Well, you may not see a scientist do Rock and Roll,
  But they understand the mineral properties of rock.
  As well as the physics of roll.
   
Scod: Oh, Mr. Scientist, I burnt my hand bone on a boiling water!
Yon: How do you know it was boiling? Was it bubbling?
Scod: Uhh... no.
Yon: Then it wasn't really boiling.
Scod: I feel better already.
Tripod: GO SCIENCE!
   
Gatesy: Help, help! I lost my ball bearing down the drain!
Yon: Then get a magnet, man.
Gatesy: But it's a really deep drain.
Yon: Then you'll need a really long magnet.
Tripod: GO SCIENCE!
   
  Oh, science facts are useful,
  That's why they teach 'em to ya.
  Your teachers wouldn't screw ya,
  Don't be a fool,
  The science school is cool.
   
Scod: Oh help, Mr. Scientist, I need you again!
  How does a hot air balloon rise?
Yon: Because it's a HOT AIR balloon.
Scod: Ohh.
   
Gatesy: How do I deal with girls and not feel awkward?
   
  (Pause)
   
Yon: Did you know that the atomic structure of butter is not dissimilar to...
Gatesy: But... but... but... I was asking about gir...
Yon: Margarine, on the other hand...
   
Scod: Break it down!
   
Tripod: Oh, science facts are useful...
  Oh, science facts are useful...
   
Gatesy: Okay, everybody, rock and roll moment! Hold your lighters in the air!
   
Tripod: (Clapping) Oh, science facts are useful...
  Oh, science facts are useful...
   
Gatesy: But be careful because butane, even when contained in very small amounts, is an extremely volatile gas.
   
Tripod: Oh, science facts are useful...
   
Gatesy: Thanks to Issac Newton we can crowd-surf!
   
Tripod: That's why they teach 'em to ya.
   
Gatesy: Bikini tops are a great invention!
   
Tripod: Your teachers wouldn't screw ya,
  Don't be a fool,
  The science school is cool!
