We All Need Just a Little ATP
(To the tune of "Yellow Submarine")
Copyright © 2003 Kevin Ahern

Tim Karplu' recording HERE
Instructor sings
In the cells, inside of us, there's a sugar on adenine
Which is linked, to phosphate groups, and you know it as ATP
 
Everyone Sings:
If we build up a lot of ATP, we've too much energy, metabolically
If we build up a lot of ATP, we've too much energy, metabolically
 
 
Instructor sings
And the cellular decree, calls for storing up the energy
So we save, it chemically, building acids onto ACP
 
Everyone Sings:
Making fat stores a lot of energy, creates NADP, and uses ATP
Making fat stores a lot of energy, creates NADP, and uses ATP
 
 
Instructor sings
When we need, some energy, we burn fats in fancy cell machines
Acids all, get shuttled in, on the backs of little carnitines
 
Everyone Sings:
We break acids every hour today, in mitochnodri-ay, to acetyl-CoA
We break acids every hour today, in mitochnodri-ay, to acetyl-CoA
 
 
Instructor sings
One more thing, about this tune, should be remembered by, all of you
Burning fat, converts a few, FADs to FADH2s
 
Everyone Sings:
NADH is a product too, that you can surely use, when NAD's reduced
NADH is a product too, that you can surely use, when NAD's reduced
