They Call the Stuff Urea
(to the tune of "They Call the Wind Mariah")
Copyright 2010 Kevin Ahern

David Simmons' recording HERE

Get ATPs, bicarbonate,
Ammonia catalyzing
To make carba-mo-yl phosphate
And then start the synthesizing

When joined up with an ornithine
In THE mi-TOE-chon-DREE-a
It turns into a citrulline
When cycling to urea

They call the stuff urea!

On exit to the cytosol
There's bonding aspartat-ic
The argininosuccinate
Is produced in this schematic

Bid farewell to a fumarate
Amino panacea
Arises when the arginine
Gets lysed to form urea

You’ve just made some urea!

The body handles many things
Requiring its attention
Like balancing aminos for
Uremia prevention

So if there's excess nitrogen
It is a good idea
To rid yourself of surplus by
Producing some urea

Go out and take a pee, yeah!

Have yourself a pee, yeah!
