Translation
To the tune of "Maria" (from West Side Story)

Translation
The most intricate thing I ever saw

From five prime to three prime, translation, translation
The final step that we know about the central dog-ma

Amino, carboxyl, translation, translation. . . .
Translation, translation, translation . .

Translation!
I just learned the steps of translation
And all the things they say
About tRNA
Are true

Translation!
To form peptide bonds in translation
The ribosomal cleft
Must bind to an E-F
tee-you!

Translation!
A-U-G binds the f-met's cargo
16S lines up Shine and Dalgarno
Translation
I'll never stop needing translation

The most intricate thing I ever saw
Translationnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn
