An NLM Holiday Sing-a-long

 

 

 

 

treble clef

round red bell with greeneryN-L-M

to tune of “Jingle Bells”

Dashing through the stacks,
Retrieving as we go.
We scan and cart and prep to bind
While shouting “Ho, ho, ho!”

Visible Humans dance
And the bust of Lister Hill sings.
Our magic isn’t just research
But in so many things!

N-L-M! N-L-M!
Rings as our refrain.
We all enjoy this lively place
Which challenges the brain.

J-S-B! J-S-B!
What would Billings say?
To see his Surgeon General libe
Take off in such a way!

to tune of “The Dreidel Song”

O data, data, data,
What knowledge will you yield?
O data, data, data,
So big in every field!

O data, data, data,
You come from every source.
We spin and crunch and analyze
To find new things, of course!

O data, data, data,
We lift this song to you.
We know you are inanimate,
Yet you’re our partner, too.

O data, data, data,
The strategic plan agrees.
To discovery and public health
You hold so many keys!
