    Here are the lyrics to the song:


    by Eric Werling

    Get up in the morning
    It’s four o’clock
    Still a little sleepy
    But I’ve got to rock

    Got a lot to do, now people
    Got a lot to do
    I’m a building scientist
    And I do it all for you.

    Now I like to test buildings that have lots of floors
    And I know how to use multiple blower doors
    I’ve got a mile o’ tubing and pressure gauges, too.
    I’m a building scientist, and I got them building science blues

    Well, I like to measure leaks wherever I go
    And I like to find all of the really big holes
    And I plug ‘em all up with all kind o’ tape ‘n goo
    I’m a building scientist, and I got them building science blues

    I like to squirt caulk
    I like to spray foam
    I like to blow insulation in every home
    I’m a building scientist, and it’s so cool

    They call me a scientist, but I didn’t have to go to school

    But, I love my job, and I’ll be true
    ‘Cause there’s nothin’ more important I can do
    I’m a building scientist, and my mama, she’s so proud.
    I’m gonna save the world and I'll shout it out right out loud, yes…

    I’m a building scientist, yes, I am
    I’m a building scientist -- hot damn!
    I”m a building scientist, it’s true

    I’m a building scientist and I got them building science blues.

    It's probably too small an audience for him to be able to quit his day-job, eh? ;-)
