Say it’s time to open up
It’s time to make a buck
Time to eat out
Time to run-a-muck
But the science hasn’t changed

Go to brunch with your spouse
Cause there’s nothing more essential
Masked waiter serve you
And there’s really no potential
But the science hasn’t changed

Throw a 50th birthday bash
At the good ole country club
Don’t tell your age in public
Have a bucket full of Buds
And the science hasn’t changed

Plan your perfect Sunday wedding
Cause you’d never just elope
Spare no one on the list
And she ain’t telling you no joke
But the science hasn’t changed

Create a period of time
Where you pretend that it’s all over
Put too much stock in what they tell you
Invite the whole gang over
But the science hasn’t changed

Have your firework bash
On the Fourth of July
Pretend there’s real leadership
Don’t ask questions why
And the science hasn’t changed

Thinking about the holidays
Though they’re probably a lost cause
But Halloween’s a winnin’
Though the candyman has lost
And the science hasn’t changed

Have a three martini lunch
With your mother downtown
Coq au Vin on Bastille Day
At your finest French hotel
And the science hasn’t changed

Send the kids back to school
Though the teachers might not go
Getting back to church now
The choir’s opening all the doors
And the science hasn’t changed

Open all the city bars
But then tell them not to go
Then why’d we open them at all
Coulda just stayed closed
Cause the science hasn’t changed

Getting crowded at the lakefront
Though they say it’s safe to go
Keep a smile on your face now
But it’s not supposed to show
Due to the fact that the science hasn’t changed

Waiting for the future
Sure is taking it’s time
For some it can’t come sooner
For some they don’t mind
And the science hasn’t changed
