B-DNA

Phosphates
Are in nucleotides
I say phosphates
Cover bases inside
I say phosphates
Span the 5 and 3 primes
Thereís no need - to - be - real - mixed - up

Bases
Carry info you see
I say bases
Are all complementíry
I say bases
Like A,T,G and C
They have got - to - be Ė all - paired - up

Itís fun to play with some B-DNA
Itís got a boatload of G-C-T-A
Itís got everything
A polymerase needs
When you melt all the Aís and Tís

Itís fun to play with some B-DNA
Itís got a boatload of G-C-T-A
You can make RNAs
With a po-ly-mer-ase
Just by pairing up Uís with Aís

Proteins
Full of amino Aís
I say proteins
Come from mRNAs
I say proteins
Require tRNAs
There is more Ė you - need - to Ė trans-late

Codons
Like our friend U-A-C
I say codons
Come in clusters of three
I say codons
Have one base wobble Ėee
Now you can - go - forth - and - tran-slate

Itís fun to play with some B-DNA
Itís got a boatload of G-C-T-A
With those hydrogen Bs
And right-hand he-li-ces
Anti-par-a-llel fives and threes


Itís fun to play with some B-DNA
Itís got a boatload of G-C-T-A
With those hydrogen Bs
And right-hand he-li-ces
Anti-par-a-llel fives and threes

Itís fun to play with some B-DNA
Itís got a boatload of G-C-T-A
With those hydrogen Bs
And right-hand he-li-ces
Anti-par-a-llel fives and threes
