I-R-B
(to the tune of “Penny Lane”)

Copyright 2014 Kevin Ahern

If you’re working on a project for your thesis and

There are people in the plan, I’ll guarantee

On the path to get a P-H-D

You’ll need I-R-B

 

If the plan’s collecting data with a survey and

Someone tells you just to go ahead and start

You had better take this song to heart

Get your I-R-B - Rapidly

 

Chorus

I-R-B - I never knew. I needed you

Now I wonder what I’m gonna do

I hope someone’s got my back

 

So the I-R-B reviews my application and

I am hoping I can finish work this fall

Here's the person who will make the call

Lisa Leventhal

 

Instrumental

 

Chorus

I-R-B is in my head and on my mind

I am wond’ring what they’ll find

They’re done and here’s the word

 

In these cases boards consider all the evidence

Human subjects need protection guarantees

Whether masters or a Ph.D.

Do it ethically

 

This research is just a very simple survey and

The participants don’t have identities

And cannot be tracked down easily

For this one attempt, you’re exempt

 

Chorus

I-R-B is done for me - I’m feeling free

I can do my work now easily

Getting my Ph.D.

 

I-R-B is done for me - I’m feeling free

I can do my work now easily

I-R-B
