All I want for Christmas is . . . . Nature
A Cover of “All I Want for Christmas is You”
Composer(s): Walter N. Afanasieff
Originally sung by Mariah Carey

I don’t want a lot for Christmas
There’s just one thing I need
I don’t care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I just need to graduate
But before I set the date
Make my wish come true . . . Nature:
All I want for Christmas is…
You

I won’t ask for much this Christmas
I won’t even wish for snow
I just want to see my data
Printed in your centerfold
I don’t care too much for Science,
Cell, PlosOne or all the rest
My data deserve to publish
In only the very best
I don’t need to demonstrate
That my paper’s really great
Make my wish come true
Nature, all I want for Christmas is you

I won’t ask for much this Christmas
Just ignore reviewer three
You can tell just by his comments
That he’s trying to scoop me
I’ve used all the latest methods
Addressed all your concerns and more
You can’t ignore the implications
It’s all spelled out in figure four
Oh don’t you want to be the one
To publish this science home run?
Make my wish come true
Nature, all I want for Christmas is you
You, Nature

Oh, my rationale is flawless for a start (look at that flow chart!)
And my data are all significant — three stars! (oh that’s really hard!)
So why are you delaying?
You see I’m going crazy
Don’t you want to be the only one to publish me?
Won’t you please take my paper tonight?
Oh won’t ask for much this Christmas
In fact I’ve got so much to give
This paper can be all yours
If you will simply accept it
Oh this paper will cure disease
And probably create world peace
What more can I do?
Nature all I want for Christmas is…
You

All I want for Christmas is you… Nature
