Der Untergang des Pacto Andino Segundo

The Rock-Paper-Scissors-Lizard-Spock Song

January 17, 2011

This song based on the well-known “Rock-Paper-Scissors-Lizard-Spock” from “The Big Bang Theory” (Episode 8 ‘The Lizard-Spock Expansion’ of Season 2) was originally dedicated to Jim Parsons on his Emmy Award 2010. As a tribute to his first Golden Globe 2011 I like to publish it here:

Scissors cut paper,
Which covers rock,
Rock crushes lizard,
Which poisons Spock,

Spock smashes scissors
Which decapitate
Lizard the head off –
Isn’t that great?

Lizard eats paper
Which disproves Spock,
Spock vaporizes
Rock into fog,

And, as it always has
When it’s opposed
Rock crushes scissors –
The circle is closed!

When the physics
Drives me crazy
When the math makes me mad –
I simply remember Big Bang Theory
And then I don’t feel so sad.

It can be sung to the tune of “My Favorite Things” from “The Sound of Music”.
