"Let’s get down to business, to improve our brains. If you are still talking, then please refrain. —— To the tune of “Be a Man”"

"I do not know much about writing rap lyrics, but I’m guessing that most rappers do not meet with physicists and cosmologists from MIT and Cornell before sitting down to write.
