    (Weird science)
    Weird, ooo!
    Weird Science
    Plastic tubes and pots and pans
    Bits and pieces and
    Magic from the hand
    We're makin'

    (Weird science)
    Things I've never seen before
    Behind bolted doors
    Talent and imagination

    (Weird science)
    Not what teacher said to do
    Makin' dreams come true
    Living tissue, warm flesh

    (Weird science)
    Plastic tubes and pots and pans
    Bits and pieces (and)
    Bits and pieces (and)

    (Bits of) my creation--Is it real?
    It's my creation...my creation
    It's my creation

    Weird Science
    Weird, ooo!

    (Weird science)
    Magic and technology
    Voodoo dolls and chants
    Electricity We're makin'

    (Weird science)
    Fantasy and microchips
    Shooting from the hip
    Something different
    We're makin'

    (Weird science)
    Pictures from a magazine
    Diagrams and charts
    Mending broken hearts (and makin')

    (Weird science) Something like a recipe
    Bits and pieces (and)
    Bits and pieces (and)

    (Bits of) my creation--Is it real?
    It's my creation--I do not know
    No hesitation--No heart of gold
    Just flesh and blood--I do not know
    I do not know
    From my heart and from my hand
    Why don't people understand
    My intentions, Ooh, weird science


    Magic and technology
    Weird Science
    Things we never seen before
    Weird Science
    Not what teacher said to do

    Bits and pieces (and)
    Bits and pieces (and)

    (Bits of) my creation--Is it real?
    It's my creation--I do not know
    No hesitation--No heart of gold
    Just flesh and blood--I do not know
    It's my creation
    It's my creation...ooo!
    my creation
    It's my creation
    It's my creation

    From my heart and from my hand
    Why don't people understand
    My intentions, ooh, weird science

    Weird ooh
    weird science ooh
    Weird

  • Tim from Northfield, MnThis song was also used for the Weird Science Television Series. Namely for the opening.
  • Wilson from Tulsa, OkActually the band started off as The Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo, musical theater group. Danny took over in 1976 when Richard began pursuing a film career. In 1979, Danny changed the format of the band ans shortened the name to Oingo Boingo. If you can find some of music of The Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo, it is certainly worth a listen.
  • Ograstamon from Newkirk, OkI wouldn't put this song on my Top 10 by Boingo but as they only have three tracks on this site I must give it a high rating to correct this oversite.
  • Madison from Norway, MeDanny Elfman is an incredible movie soundtrack writer. I don't love the stuff he did with Oingo Boingo but I really like Weird Science. I love all the little percussion noises in the background.
  • Max from Laconia, NhWhy the hell am I the only one writing something for this awsome song? Does no one ever listen to great stuff like this anymore? Idiots!!! Danny also did the singing voice of Jack Skelington on the Nightmare Before Christmas.
