Allan Charles Wilson (18 October 1934 – 21 July 1991) was a pioneer in the use of molecular approaches to understand evolutionary change and reconstruct phylogenies, and a contributor to the study of human evolution. He was one of the most controversial figures in post-war biology; his work attracted a great deal of attention both from within and outside the academic world.

 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

Woke up one morning
Fell out of the bed 
Walked over to the window 
And to the day I said that 

From today on
There would be no more you and I
Then a passing seagull swooped down 
And crapped in my eye 

I jumped in the shower 
To wash it out 
The soap fell off the shelf 
And slipped straight into my mouth 

Oh things could be better
I thought to myself 
But at least from today 
I would be alone by myself 

Think you're the worst person I ever met 
Two weeks after I met you, you tried to kill my pet 
And half an hour later I caught you flirting with the vet 
Said I should be committed, it was insane that I was upset 

Moved into my house, invited you into my home 
Didn't know you were going to bring with you 50 garden gnomes 
And your cooking is terrible, even to those guys made of stone 
You've got no class, you even think beer should be served without foam 

It's not even as if I could say that you're cute 
The truth is that your skin resembles a beat up old leather boot 
And I kiss you with open eyes, it looks like I'm pashing a newt 
And believe me you are wrong when you do that it doesn't sound like a flute 

So I'm walking out; I'm walking out 
It's going to be a brand new day 
I'm just going to fly away 
Being without you is the way it's going to stay

So I walked down the street, waiting to catch the bus 
The brakes failed and it smashed into all of us 
And I was sped off to hospital in a blind rush 
They say history don't repeat but the driver got shat on by a thrush 

He let go of the wheel; we left the tar seal 
And when I awoke nothing below by nose I could feel 
I remember thinking to myself, man this just can't be real 
That was when the earthquake struck and I was crushed by a girder made of steel 

One week later they dug me out 
They showed me all my broken bones on the x-ray printout 
But then they ran out of money and sent me home with just a milk-stout 
As I was walking down my street someone asked me for a donation for the boy scouts. 

As I walked in the door, what did I see
You on the couch looking fed up at me 
Turned to ask me 'Where have you been' angrily 
I just gave you a smile and offered to make you a cup of tea 

So I'm coping out; I'm coping out 
Gonna be no brand new day 
I'm just going to put all my dreams away 
Being with you is just easier than walking away 

Thought I was walking out; thought I was walking out 
Thought there was going to be a brand new day 
What the hell do I know anyway?
Being with you is the way things are going to stay
