(I Got the) Talking PhD Blues

by Anna Blanch on December 12, 2011

I’ve had some posts sharing Blues numbers about the PHD before.



This is for all the research students out there, especially those working on a doctoral/PhD thesis. Hmmm..are there any left, I wonder? Anyway, Brian May would have known the feeling I guess. Original lyrics by Thumbpicker1812. Visit my website thumbpicker1812.co.uk.

Well the time has come, to renew my registration
Guess I might as well prepare my resignation
I got the PhD blues
I got the PhD blues
Woh oh!
I got the PhD blues

Yeah it sure looks like, I’m in a fix
Been working on my PhD since 1996!
I got the PhD blues
I got the PhD blues
Woh oh!
I got the PhD blues

I’m feelin sad, it’s sure a pity
Tomorrow’s my date with the Doctoral Committee
I got the PhD blues
I got the PhD blues
Woh oh!
I got the PhD blues

Cos it’s – Sociology, Epistemology, Philosophy, It’s got to be, Psychotherapy, and Methodology, Woh oh! I got the PhD blues

Well I think I’m, I’m going to pieces
Cos I just can’t seem to write my frigging PhD thesis
I got the PhD blues
I got the PhD blues
Woh oh!
I got the PhD blues

Well it sure looks like, a struggle uphill
Guess I might as well settle for the – goddamned MPhil!
I got the PhD blues
I got the PhD blues
Woh oh!
I got the PhD blues

Cos it’s – Cybernetics, and Genetics, Diagnosis, and Symbiosis, Idealism, and Realism, Morphism, Behaviourism, Reification, and Alienation, Communication, and Exploitation, Woh oh! I got the PhD blues
