Oh, Biology is the sixth song of the musical, Freaky Friday, and also the fifth song of the 2018 remake which it is performed by Katherine (in Ellie's body), Adam and the students.

Lyrics

Katherine: (in Ellie's body)
I'm ace at all anatomies and master of dissection
An expert chef who wields an expert knife
But still, I sense a gremlin in the system of perfection
There clearly are still mysteries to life
It's kingdom, phylum, class, and then
It's order, family, genus
It all comes back to me like child's play
Then he leans over my shoulder there, in all his long and leanness
And cuts my hard earned knowledge clean away
I try to keep a focused mind and steady hand

Students:
Ooh, keep focused, ooh, keep steady

Katherine: (in Ellie's body)
But the rhythm of my heart is like a country western band

Students:
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Katherine: (in Ellie's body)
Oh, biology!
What have you done to me?
Why can't my grown-up brain control my teenage parts?

Oh, biology!
Why won't you let me be?
Why can't you be humane and still our beating hearts?
Before the cutting starts

Adam: (spoken)
Huh, shyeah. Ellie, check it. Hahaha, man!

Katherine: (in Ellie's body) and Students:
He's inert and inarticulate (Ooh)
A specimen of truant (Ooh)
And though we're both fifteen, he's much too young (Ooh)

Students:
Much too young

Katherine: (in Ellie's body)
My amygdala is fully formed, my frontal lobe is fluent (Ooh, ooh)
And pheromones go futzing with my tongue

Adam:
That's totes amaze, I'm way impressed, like, sweet technique

Students:
Holy cow!

Katherine: (in Ellie's body)
Um, like totally, um, thanks
Good Lord, now can't I even speak?

Katherine: (in Ellie's body) and Students:
Oh, biology! (Oh, biology!)
What have you done to me? (Done to me!)
My over-forty soul is in a teen cliché (Teen cliché!)
Oh, biology! (Biology!)
Why won't you set me free? (Set me free!)
'Cause I'm not in control and hunger has its say (Hunger has its say)
And hormones have their way

(spoken)
Focus Blake, focus

Zach:
Hey, take a look at Ellie Blake
She does this lab work great

Liam:
For Kermit there, he had no chance

Savannah:
That girl is on my nerves today, I better set her straight

Rusty:
It's fun to make a dead frog dance!

Adam:
I never knew that Ellie Blake was such a science wiz
She's smart, of course, so it makes sense
But something's up with her today, I don't know what it is
She's like on fire, she's so intense

Katherine: (in Ellie's body)
He's so intense!

Students:
It's so intense!

Rusty:
And I'm so dense!

All:
Oh, biology!
Look what you've done to me!
My heart is in a pan, my brain is out to sea
Oh, biology!
Why won't you let me be?
Please help me if you can, please hear my painful plea
Biology
Biology
Biology

Katherine: (in Ellie's body)
Please set me free

Students:
Set me free
Set me free
Set her free

Katherine: (in Ellie's body)
I’m ace at all anatomies
A master of dissection
An expert chef
Who wields an expert knife

But still, I sense a gremlin
In this system of perfection
There clearly
Are still mysteries to life

It’s the kingdom, phylum, class
And then it’s order, family, genus
It’s all come back to me
Like a child’s play

Then he leans over my shoulders there
In all his long and leanness
And cuts my hard-earned
Knowledge clean away

I try to keep a focused mind
And steady hand
But the rhythm of my heart
Is like a country western band

Oh, Biology!
What have you done to me?
Why can’t my grownup brain
Control my teenage parts

Oh, Biology!
Why won’t you let me be?
Why can’t you be humane
And still our beating hearts
Before the cutting starts

Adam: She’s so confident and cocky
It’s a total transformation
I’m sweating
But I’ll try to play it cool

But I open up my mouth
To try to make some conversation
And somehow end up
Sounding like a fool

Yo, dude, that’s sick I’m way impressed, like
Sweet technique (Students: OMG!)
Katherine: (in Ellie's body)
Um, like, totally, um thanks
Come on now, can’t I even speak?

Oh, Biology!
What have you done to me?
My over 40 soul
Is it a teen cliché (Students:' teen cliché)

Both: Oh, Biology!
Why won’t you let me free?
‘Cause I’m not in control
When hunger has it’s say
And hormones have their way

Karl: Hey, what is up with El today?
She seems, well, kind of great
Monica: She’s always great
But, yeah, it’s nuts

Savannah: That girl is on my nerves today
I better set her straight
Kitty: You better let her know what’s what!

'Adam: I never knew that Ellie Blake
Was such a science whiz
She’s smart of course
That much I knew

But something’s up with her today
I don’t know what it is
But then just maybe
I feel it too (Katherine: (in Ellie's body) I feel it too)
We feel it too (Savannah: That girl is through!)

All: Oh, Biology!
Look what you’ve done to me
My heart is in a pan
My brain is out to sea

Oh, Biology!
Why won’t you let me be?
Please help me if you can
Please help my painful plea

Biology
Biology
Biology

Katherine: (in Ellie's body)
Please set me free
