"To make one me you just add
 Half of mom and half of dad
 That is what I once believed
 But I know now that I was wrong
 I got so much more from you mom
 Than just half a set of genes
 I got nutrients and transcription factors
 and nearly everything that matters
 plus my prenatal environment (transplacental inheritance)
 mRNA, mitochondria,
 That back in the day once belonged to ya (theyre cytoplasmic)
 and I just want to thank for supplying them

(a) Thanks to [info] - personal drglam for linking to this earlier (uh, about two years earlier), and (b) Go listen to the whole thing. Especially if you're even the tiniest bit of a science geek (which I think covers the majority of my friends).
