Unformatted text preview: _-... .....—-. ...--~.A---nancao AMPHIOXUS to the tune of Tipperary. sung by GB, GR and chorus Sent in by Rani Boff (Rah neel who learned this song in Zoology class from Dr . Lutton : A fish-like thing appeared among the annelids one day. It hadn't any parapods or setas to display. It hadn't any eyes or jaws, or ventral nervous chord, But it bad a lot of gill slits and it had a notochord. Ehorus It's a long way from Amphioxus. it's a long way to us, It's a long way from Amphioxus to the meanest human cuss. CH0 Ru GOodbye fins and gill slits] Hello lungs and hair. It's a long long way from Amphioxus. but we come from there. Vhtse It wasn't much to look at. and it scarce knew how to swim. And Nereis was very sure it didn't come from him. The naILuscs wouldn't own it and the Arthropods got sore, So the poor thing had to burrow in the sand along the shore. REPEAT CHORUS Verse It wiggled in the sand before a crab could nip its tail It said. "Gill slits and myotomes are all of no avail." I've grown some metapleural folds, and sport and oral hood, But all of these fine new characters don't do me any good.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
