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
