"The Sounds of Science" as written by Michael Louis Diamond, Adam Nathaniel Yauch, Adam Horovitz, John Robert King, Michael S. Simpson, Matt Dike, John Winston Lennon and Paul James Mccartney....
Now here we go dropping science, dropping it all over
Like bumping around the town like when you're driving a Range Rover
Expanding the horizon and expanding the parameter
Expanding the rhymes of sucka MC amateurs
Naugels, Issac Newton, a scientific E-Z
Ben Franklin with the kite, getting over with the key
Now rock, shocking the mike of the many times, times the times tables
Rock well to tell the spell all of the old fables
'Cause I be dropping the new science and I be kicking the new k-nowledge
An MC to a degree that you can't get in college
Now the drags of the earth and the eggs that I eat
I got pegs through my hands and one through my feet
Shea Stadium the radium, E.M.D. squared
Kicked out of the Palladium, d'you think that I care?
It's the sounds of science, the sounds of science

Rope-a-dope
The newest in new
Right up to your face and diss you
Waxin' and milkin' all of y'all square heads

Time and money for girls covered with honey
You lie and aspire to be as cunning
Reelin' and rockin' and rollin' the B-sized D-cup
Order the quarter deluxe, why don'tcha wake up
My mind is kinda flowing like an oil projector
Had to get up and get the Jimmy protector
Went bezerk and worked, and exploded
She woke up in the morning and her face was coated
Buddy you study the man on the mic
D, do whatcha' like
Drunk as a skunk am I from celebration
To peep that freak unique penetration
Well I figured out who makes the crack it's
The suckas with the badges and the blue jackets
Professor of science 'cause I keep droppin' it
I smell weak 'cause y'all keep poppin' it
People always ask me what's the phenomenon
Yo what's up? Yo what's goin' on
No one really knows what I'm talkin' about
And yeah that's right my name's Yauch

Ponce De Leon, constantly on
The fountain of youth, not Robotron
Peace is a word I've heard before
So move and move and move up on the dance floor
'Cause I'm gonna die, gonna die one day
'Cause I'm goin' and goin' and goin' this way
Not like a roach or a peace of toast
I'm goin' out first class, ain't goin' out coach
Rock my Adidas, never rock Filas
I do not sniff the coke, I only smoke the sinsemilla
Well with my nose I knows and with my scope I scopes
What I live I write and that's strictly rope
I got science for any occasion
Postulating theorems formulating equations
Cheech wizard in a snow blizzard
Eat a chicken gizzard with a girl named Lizzy
Dropping science like Galileo dropped the orange

    General CommentThe Sounds Of Science is a brilliant song. It has one of those little toys that you turn over & it sounds kinda like a cow saying "moooooooooo." It's mixed with a sample of When I'm Sixty Four by The Beatles. Then, the change comes in with a quick Ad Rock Interlude that parallels The New Style from Licensed To Ill with a sample of the background from Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, plus a soundbite of KRS-ONE. The second part of the song is constructed from 2 or 3 songs by The Beatles. It has the beat from Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, A snippet of a drum break from The End & guitar samples from The End & another song That I can't remember. And, of course, "I do not sniff the coke I only smoke the sinsemilla" comes from Don't Sniff Coke by Pato Banton from the album Never Give In. You can tell a lot of work went into The Sounds Of Science. Definitely one of my all-time favorite Beastie tracks.
