lyrics

Welcome to the biggest party you've seen,
we've got things that you wouldn't believe ...
just wait 'til you go down the LHC waterslide.
Bring your sunscreen, glasses, bathing suit,
bring your grandma, she'd love the bag of loot
of fun stuff, mysteries, and surprises inside.

DNA strands used as noodle swords,
petri dishes are but boogie boards,
but whirlpool centrifuges just might be your demise.
Lab gloves make awesome water balloons,
what we're doing here you'll see fairly soon,
just try not to get too much chlorine in your eyes.

Welcome to the biggest bash you've had,
let's hope the neighbors don't get too mad ...
though I heard Venusians aren't too kind.
The sun's indeed a giant disco ball
We're dancing off a waterfall
The antics here are off the wall
We're glad to know we knew you all
We'll keep on going 'til there's nothing behind

Bunsen burners grilling hot dogs,
rolling logs and flipping pogs,
earth slammed into ocean, wondering "Why?"
Cities drowning as we get a tan,
party-pooping geezers building dams,
you will have so much fun before you die.

Submerged underwater now,
oceans upon oceans and nothing below.
Trapped in, not a lot now,
drowning your sorrows because there's nowhere to go.
