That Won’t Get No (Citations)

Hmmm looks important…

When I’m sittin’ in a talk
And a woman stands on her pedestal
She’s tellin’ me more and more
About some useless information
Supposed to fire my imagination

When I’m outside the library
And a man comes over to tell me
The validity of his philosophy
Well he shouldn’t be a prof ’cause he only speaks
From a tower made of ivory

When I’m learnin’ ‘bout the world
And I’m checkin’ this and I’m findin’ that
And I’m tryin’ to make some sense
Out of this biased crap, man, it’s just a polemic
Disguised as an inquiry

When I’m tryin’ to relax one morning
And I’m disturbed by a colleague in mourning
“There ain’t nobody who respects my h-index”
It turns normal people into nervous wrecks

That won’t get no
No, that won’t get no
No citations
No citations
You can write, and then write, and then write, and then write
But that won’t get no
No, that won’t get no
No citations
No, no citations!
