The Scientific Method Blues
Science Song Lyrics and Sound Clip
J.P. Taylor

This song is available on J.P. Taylor's Singin' Songs of Science 3.

A genuinely bluesy tune providing identification and explanation of the basic parts of a scientific investigation: question, hypothesis, materials, procedure, observations, and conclusion.

You gotta start with a Question
What you really want to know
You gotta really want an answer
Wonderin’ how it’s gonna go
It might be complicated
Or as simple as can be
But you gotta state your question

Now I’ve heard people say
Where there’s a will there’s a way
And what’s got us all singin’
Is the scientific way
There’s a certain kind of thinkin’
That all the science folk’s use
That’s the song that I’m singin’
The Scientific Method Blues!

Now once you’ve got your question
You need to make a guess
‘bout how it’s gonna all turn out
A Hy-poth-e-sis!
But there’s no need to worry
If you’ll be right or wrong
‘cause it’s all about the Method
That’s why we sing this song!


Once you gather all your Materials
And you’ve got them close at hand
Then it’s time for your Procedure
It’s what you do, it’s your plan!
And once you’ve finished doing
All the things you’ve got to do
You make your Observations
You’ve gotta watch and listen, too!


Once you’ve made your observations
It’s time for your Conclusion
‘bout why things turned out like they did
It’s your question’s resolution!
So, there it is, that’s how it’s done
It’s science that we’re singin’
The Scientific Method Blues
The scientific way of thinkin’!
