Everywhere!

(To the tune of “I’ve Been Everywhere”, Geoff Mack, 1959.)

I was toting my pack along the dusty Mass Turnpike road
When along came a semi with a high canvas covered load
Well if you’re going to science boot camp, Mack, then with me you can ride
And so I climbed into the cab and then I settled down inside
He asked me if I’d seen a road with so many radar cops
And I just laughed and said, “Listen man, that’s hardly where it stops ~
Remote sensing.”

They are everywhere, man
They are everywhere, man
Tracking each mile square, man
In the sea and air, man
Think ‘em useful or beware, man
Cuz they are everywhere, I swear

They’re tracking population, vegetation, Amazon deforestation
Concentration, carbonation, an occasional crustacean
Acclimation, excavation, animals in hibernation
Oscillation, radiation, even people on probation
Elevation, glaciations, illegal immigration
Habitation, migration, your traffic violation
Medication, oscultation, inhalation, exhalation
In other words, respiration ~ Hey!

They are everywhere, man
They are everywhere, man
Tracking each mile square, man
In the sea and air, man
Think ‘em useful or beware, man
Cuz they are everywhere, I swear

They’re using radar, sonar, seismograms and gyroscopes
PET Scans, X-Rays, EKGs and stethoscopes
Spatial, spectral, temporal resolutions
Data mining, data sets, scatter plot distribution
Landset, Nimbus, SOHO and Magellan
They will catch you if you are a felon
Satellites, vector maps, ultrafiche, space probes
Even EEGs are checking out your frontal lobe ~ Yeah!

(Repeat Chorus x 2)
