The E. coli Song
(To the tune of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer"
Copyright © 2004 Kevin Ahern

Tim Karplus' recording HERE

E. coli’s very simple
That’s the way the story goes
But if you worked around it
You would probably hold your nose

Most of the other cell types
Have a mitochondrion
They use to make triphosphates
By phos-phor-y-la-she-un

When there is no oxygen
Coli’s got it made
Glucose breakdown products all
Wind up making ethanol

Then all the cells around it
Shout E. coli’s name with glee
“You make us feel light-headed”
“When you act fermentally”
