Radiocarbon Dating!

December 18, 2009

At last our hero and heroine are united in love! This song is sung as they finally confess to each other the depth of their feelings and their desire to spend the rest of their lives together:
 

ANNIE:

The origin of my feelings for your carbon based love
Can be traced to a particular date
When I first saw you using your tool to dig holes
But I knew that I would have to wait.

But now I know your love will survive carbon decay.
Now I’m relieved to be over the waiting,
And we can set the date, there’s no need for delay!
Now we’re radiocarbon dating!

GARY:

At last I can study your pretty carbon insides
I’ve got the right equipment to hand
With yours working with mine we can work out this date
With a bang we don’t have to understand!

But there’s more to this date than just carnal desires
And our carbon based needs that we’re sating,
This carbon-based love won’t degrade with the years.
We are radiocarbon dating!

BOTH:

It’s taken us time and now we’re taking our time
We’ve got all the time in the world
And time’s all we need and time’s all we want
To see our love further unfurled!

We’ve just begun our affair but we can date back our love
If we analyse the raw data
To precisely the moment when our eyes first met
We knew we’d carbon date sooner or later!

ANNIE:

I don’t need no thermoluminescence machine
To discover the particular date
When my heart burned hot for what I had seen
I believe it was all down to fate.

It seems a carbon half-life since that life-changing day
And oh! the joy of anticipating
All the carbon years in the future that lay
Now we’re radiocarbon dating!

Gary kneels on the ground in the traditional pose and produces a ring from his pocket. He proffers it to Annie, who is moved almost to tears and sings:
 

GARY:

Like dendrochronologists we can set the date
By using simple rings
Rings represent the growth of our true love
And our family tree, so it begins.

Annie allows him to place the ring on her finger and the two kiss.
 

BOTH:

It’s taken us time and now we’re taking our time
We’ve got all the time in the world
And time’s all we need and time’s all we want
To see our love further unfurled!

We’ve just begun our affair but we can date back our love
If we analyse the raw data
To precisely the moment when our eyes first met
We knew we’d carbon date sooner or later!

We’re radiocarbon dating!
There’s no need for preservating!
This love won’t start degrading!
No it never will start fading!
Yes we are radio carbon dating!
There is no need for faking!
And we’re anticipating,
A life that’s exhilarating!
Now we’re radiocarbon dating!
Now we’re radiocarbon dating!
