Evolution: Rap It Up!

(When rapping, follow the rhythm of
Salt-N-Pepa's "None of Your Business.")

Chorus
If I want to teach tonight. Evolution? Right!
None of your business.
If you want to be a freak 'n teach it on the weekend,
None of my business.

What chu doin' with their lives
Leavin' evolution out?
Don't chu think that you should make a stand
and stop the doubts? Ha!

Darwin, Mayer, Watson, Crick,
Mendel(son) 'n old Lamarck,
Retro-, transpo-, hepadn-,
Makes you want to barf? Right!

Flu is evolution too
And you thought you were so safe.
AIDS 'n cold sores-scary stuff but
Changes we've all met. So. . . .

Now you know just what IT is.
Change and Evolution. Same!
Don't be suckered into playing
Brown vs. Board games.

(Chorus).
If I want to teach tonight. Evolution? Right!
None of your business.
If you want to be a freak 'n teach it on the weekend,
None of my business.

Go for it.
