She Blinded Me With Science

No, Thomas Dolby isn’t coming to Rising Sun to perform his 1980’s one hit wonder.  However, Purdue Extension-Ohio County is hosting a Science Camp Tuesday, July 19 at the Ohio County Public Library (503 Second St.).  From 9 am to 4 pm, youth ages 9 to 18 will enjoy a fun filled day of hands on science activities.  

Space is limited to the first 25 participants with a registration fee of $20.  Please contact the extension office at 812-438-3656 to register while space is still available.  You will pay your fee at the workshop check-in.

And for those who remember the song which reached No. 5 on the US Billboard Hot 100 Chart in 1983, here are the lyrics for your amusement and entertainment.

It’s poetry in motion

She turned her tender eyes to me

As deep as any ocean

As sweet as any harmony

Mmm – but she blinded me with science

She blinded me with science

And failed me in biology

When I’m dancing close to her

Blinding me with science – science

I can smell the chemicals

Science

Science

Mmm – but it’s poetry in motion

And when she turned her eyes to me

As deep as any ocean

As sweet as any harmony

Mmm – but she blinded me with science

She blinded me with science

And failed me in geometry

When she’s dancing next to me

Blinding me with science – science

Science

I can hear machinery

‘Blinding me with science – science

Science

It’s poetry in motion

And now she’s making love to me

The spheres are in commotion

The elements in harmony

She blinded me with science

She blinded me with science

And hit me with technology

‘Good heavens Miss Sakamoto – you’re beautiful

I don’t believe it

There she goes again

She’s tidied up and I can’t find anything

All my tubes and wires

And careful notes

And antiquated notions

But – it’s poetry in motion

And when she turned her tender eyes to me

As deep as any ocean

As sweet as any harmony

Mmm – but she blinded me with science

She blinded me with science

And failed me in geometry

She blinded me – with science

She blinded me with
