Benny Beaver Genome Song

(To the tune of “Red River Valley”)

In Corvallis a lovable mascot
Wonders why he’s the way that he is
Everyone that he meets has one answer
It relates to the sequencing biz

Engineers say that Benny’s amazing
Building dams of incredible strength
And his front teeth are worthy of praising
Growing to an incredible length

Why is our college mascot so daunting?
While the others like ducks are so meek?
DNA in the cells of our Benny
Is what makes all of his traits unique

So our Beaver will soon get his answers
To the questions, revealing unknowns
There will be all the info he’s after
In the sequence of his full genome
