Lyrics

The other day I heard the news, a little something made me blue
A hole in the ozone not too far away from me
It came as a shock 'cause I'd been led to believe
That science was the saviour of us all you see
We're suppose to be living better lives through chemistry

We've got holes in the ozone, oil in the sea
Toxic chemicals in you and me
Don't you know we're all living better lives through chemistry
There's mercury in the rainbow trout
And in our bodies you can have no doubt
Don't you know we're all living better lives through chemistry

Oh baby, oh baby, now don't you be scared
But there are human-made chemicals everywhere
Don't you know you can't escape 'er
We've got dioxin in the toilet paper
Don't you know we're all living better lives through chemistry

You've got to learn your ABC's
Your CFC's and DDT's and PCB's
Don't you know you can't escape 'er
We've got dioxin in the toilet paper
Don't you know we're all living better lives through chemistry

There are artificial hormones in our meat
And cancer-causing chemicals in what we eat
Don't you know we're all living better lives through chemistry
There's hydrogenated fats and cholesterol too
Preservatives enough to pickle me and you
Don't you know we're all living better lives through chemistry

Oh baby, oh baby, now don't you be sad
But mutated children really aren't so bad
Don't you know you can't escape 'er
We've got dioxin in the toilet paper
Don't you know we're all living better lives through chemistry

We've got radioactive people knocking at my door
And acid rain dissolving the lake shore
You can see pretty well what progress has done for us
Of course it's not up to you and me to change
The things we do each day that cause this pain
We'll just bow our heads and say: "In Science We Trust"
