Song about DNA and it's replication. Based on the tune from Owl City's Fireflies.

Lyrics:

I've got something to say
About magnificent DNA
Ya know, that double helix thats winded up

Replication starts with helicase
Unwinding the spiral staircase
All at the origin of replica...tion

I'd like to make myself believe
that replication goes slowly
That's a lie, I won't deny
Because it goes so swift
Millions in minutes, now that's a gift

Single-strand binding protein
stablizes DNA until its ready to be seen
as a template for replication

Primase puts the primer in
For polymerase I to begin
Replacing it with the acid of DN

I'd like to make myself believe
that replication goes slowly
That's a lie, I won't deny
Because it goes so swift
Millions in minutes, now that's a gift
Replication

Replication bubbles do expand
(At the replication fork)
Poly III elongates by the grand
(By adding GTAC)
Topoimerase relieves the stress
(Correcting the overwind)
Ligase connects the rest

Okizaki fragments
So short, I feel lament
Ligase connects them and now their happy


But sometimes there are mistakes
But that's fixed by Nuclesase
it takes the dimer which gets replaced

I'd like to make myself believe
that replication goes slowly
That's a lie, I won't deny
Because it goes so swift
Millions in minutes, now that's a gift
Replication

I'd like to make myself believe
that replication goes slowly
That's a lie, I won't deny
Because it goes so swift
Millions in minutes, now that's a gift
Replication

I'd like to make myself believe
that replication goes slowly
That's a lie, I won't deny
Because it goes so fast
Like this song which will not last
