RNA Polymerase Is Grand Song

Written by Mason LaMarche

(set to the tune of “Santa Claus is Coming to Town”)

You need your genes (You better watch out)
To make proteins (You better not cry)
but DNA alone (You better not pout)
can’t do everything (I’m telling you why)
R-N-A Polymerase, can help (Santa Claus is coming to town)

It copies your code (He’s making a list)
Doesn’t even check it twice (He’s checking it twice)
The transcript that pops out is subject to splice (He’s gonna find out who’s naughty and nice)
R-N-A Polymerase, does that (Santa Claus is coming to town)

It transcribes while you’re sleeping. (He sees you when you’re sleeping)
Assembles RNA making you. (He knows when you’re awake)
It crafts info for your cells to use, (He knows if you’ve been bad or good)
So proteins can be made brand new. (So be good for goodness sake)

O! You better remember! (O, you better watch out)
This concept is confusable (You better not cry)
RNA Polymerase (You better not pout)
makes our DNA usable (I’m telling you why)
R-N-A Polymerase, is grand (Santa Claus is coming to town)
O’ R-N-A Polymerase, is grand
