I F***ing Love Science: The New, Uncensored Song by Hank Green

If you’re a reg­u­lar OC read­er, you’re famil­iar with John Green, the best­selling author who has pro­duced a series of edu­ca­tion­al videos — most notably, A Crash Course in World His­to­ryA Crash Course on Lit­er­a­ture, and the new PBS video series, The Art Assign­ment. John often pro­duces videos with his broth­er Hank — a musi­cian, bio­chemist and vlog­ger — who put his tal­ents togeth­er to pro­duce this new song, “I F***ing Love Sci­ence.” Be warned, the ver­sion above is uncen­sored. As are the lyrics, found below the jump. A clean, tame, cen­sored ver­sion of the song can be found here.

I Fuckin’ Love Sci­ence
Can you even imag­ine
(Way back in the past when)
We thought that storms were caused by pet­ty gods
Fight­in’ on top of a moun­tain.

And yeah I like a good sto­ry
But even­tu­al­ly it’s gonna bore me
If it does­n’t have that truth;
That incon­tro­vert­ible, testable, repeat­able proof

I Fuckin’ love Sci­ence
I Fuckin’ Love Charles Dar­win
Cause I don’t think it’s bold to ques­tion what you’re told
If you’re told that the world’s a thou­sand years old.
There’s noth­ing here to argue against,
It’s a process not an ide­ol­o­gy,
And I fuck­ing love sci­ence.

Some­times peo­ple ask me,
Of all of the cen­turies,
Which I’d pick to live life in.
We’ll, that’s pret­ty easy…
Right now. If you think objec­tive­ly.
If you like hot run­ning water,
And mem­o­ry foam beds,
And TV shows and cell phones,
And not being dead

You fuckin’ love sci­ence,
And I fuckin’ love Carl Sagan
‘Cause I think it’s fly to look up at the sky
And nev­er ever ever stop won­der­ing why
There’s noth­ing here to argue against
It’s a process not an ide­ol­o­gy,
And I fuck­ing love sci­ence.

Wooly mam­moth embryos
Vac­cines for small­pox and polio
Your TV set, the inter­net
Your PS4, super­son­ic jets.

Exo­plan­ets galax­ies,
DNA, germ the­o­ry, rel­a­tiv­i­ty,
Just take a sec to think about it
How screwed we would be with­out it.

I Fuckin’ love Sci­ence
And I love Ros­alind Franklin,
‘Cause I want to die remem­ber­ing why
The truth is more impor­tant than win­ning a prize.
There’s noth­ing here to argue against.
It’s a process not an ide­ol­o­gy,
And I fuck­ing love sci­ence.
