Lyrics

Nerdy by vertebrature!!

Vertebrates have a backbone that’s a fact
But Invertebrates don’t get down like that
Humans are vertebrates, Yo mama would agree
I have a backbone, it’s in my back, can you see?
Getcha back straight, I’m droppin knowledge
LIKE ITS HOT
Vertebrates have backbones Invertebrates
DO NOT.
Getcha back straight, I’m droppin knowledge
LIKE ITS HOT
Vertebrates have backbones Invertebrates
DO NOT.


Let me start with the vertebrates in all their glory
Divided into five familiar categories
BIRDS, MAMMALS, FISH, AMPHIBIANS, REPTILES!
Now we’re ‘bout a hit you with a vertebrate FREESTYLE!

Eagle, flamingo, ostrich, parrot,
parakeet, cockatoo, Gorilla, ferret
Giraffe, hippo, rhino, goose,
monkey, bobcat, chinchilla, moose
Alligator, crocodile, iguana, baboon,
chameleon, snake, donkey and raccoon
Caribou, Platypus, Cockatiel, Beaver
Kangaroo, Manatee, and Golden Retriever

Vertebrates have a backbone that’s a fact
But Invertebrates don’t get down like that
Humans are vertebrates, Yo mama would agree
I have a backbone, it’s in my back, can you see?
Getcha back straight, I’m droppin knowledge
LIKE ITS HOT
Vertebrates have backbones Invertebrates
DO NOT.
Getcha back straight, I’m droppin knowledge
LIKE ITS HOT
Vertebrates have backbones Invertebrates
DO NOT.

Nice backbone, nerds!

Insects, Arachnids, Corals, crustaceans
and Mollusks make up the invertebrate nation
They’re not just bugs that everybody hates
Ninety five percent of animals are invertebrates!
Jellyfish, squid, starfish, slug,
dragonfly, centipede, and almost every bug
Octopus, urchin, oyster, earthworm.
Caterpillar, MANTIS, and other things that squirm
butterfly, housefly, Snails, bumblebee,
cockroach, tarantula, and sea anemone,
Cricket, grasshopper, clams, daddy long legs
And Mosquitos droppin mad mosquito eggs!

Getcha back straight, I’m droppin knowledge
LIKE IT’S HOT
Vertebrates have backbones Invertebrates
DO NOT.
Getcha back straight, I’m droppin knowledge
LIKE IT’S HOT
Vertebrates have backbones Invertebrates
DO NOT.

They don’t.

Quails and whales
Yo! They gotta backbone!
Spiders and snails
No. They definitely don’t!
Fawns and swans.
Yo! They gotta backbone!
Shrimp and prawns.
No. They definitely don’t!
Mary and her little lamb.
Yo! They gotta backbone!
The lobster and the clam?
No. They definitely don’t!
All 101 dalmatians.
Yo! They gotta backbone!
Crabs and crustaceans.
No! They definitely don’t!
Lemur and the Sloth.
Yo! They gotta backbone!
Caterpillar and the moth.
No! They definitely don’t!
Every shark that’s in the sea.
Yo! They gotta backbone!
Every tick and every flea?
No! They definitely don’t!

Vertebrates have a backbone that’s a fact
But Invertebrates don’t get down like that
Humans are vertebrates, your mama would agree
I have a backbone, it’s in my back, can you see?
Getcha back straight, I’m droppin knowledge
LIKE ITS HOT
Vertebrates have backbones Invertebrates
DO NOT.
Getcha back straight, I’m droppin knowledge
LIKE ITS HOT
Vertebrates have backbones Invertebrates
DO NOT.
DO NOT.
I don’t think that they do! No!

Oy, my back is killing me! I must be a vertebrate!
