I’m gonna sit right down and write myself a paper

 

I’m gonna sit right down and write myself a paper

(with apologies to Fats Waller)

I’m gonna sit right down and write myself a paper

And make believe that it’s all true

My Method’s technically sweet

with results to knock me off my feet.

Refer-en-ces at the bottom

I’ll be glad I got ’em

 

I’m gonna pick the best of my ‘typ-i-cal’ data

Make a table and a graph or two

I’ll do the theory section later

With my collaborator

We’ll add some x’s, y’s, and zee’s

To impress the referees.

 

I need more citations for that job at CalTech.

They won’t take me with a h-index of two

But if I can get this paper

Into ‘Science’, or to ‘Nature’

I’ll be on my way…

…to Cal-i-forn-i-a…

 

I’ll conclude and say that more work is required

And further funding should accrue…

I’m gonna sit right down and write myself a paper

And maybe I’ll acknowledge you.
