EXPEIMENT by Cole Porter singer: Mabel Mercer http://webphysics.davidson.edu/faculty/dmb/PittOpera/Experiment.htm Before we leave these portals to meet our paramortals, there's just one final massage I would give to you. We all have learned reliance on the sacred teachings of science, so I hope through life you never will decline, in spite of philistines defiance, to do what all good scientists do: Experiment. Make it your motto day and night. Experiment. And it will lead you to the light. The apple on the top of the tree is never too high to achieve. So take an example from Eve. Experiment. Be curious, though interfering friends may frown. Get furious, at each attempt to hold you down. If this advice you'll only employ, the future can offer you infinite joy and merriment. Experiment, and you'll see.
