Norman Borlaug's Song

(Sung to the Tune of Miss Susie Had a Steamboat)

[Norman Borlaug]
A principal architect of the Green Revolution, which increased crop yields throughout the developing world and averted famine in India and Pakistan, Norman Borlaug won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1970.

My name is Norman Borlaug,
I bred a better wheat!
And if you dare attack me
You will go down to defeat
In Minnesota!
And even Idaho!
The farmers praise my crazy maize
And grow it row by row!
I have to go now!
The Third World's farmland calls!
So sing "Yippee, agronomy"
While wearing overalls!
