Sir Isaac Newton
Of all the scientific minds in history
They put Beaker in a bow tie up against me?
I'm a master, I discovered gravity
I drop rhymes like they're falling from an apple tree
You're no match for me, you got a Bach degree
I got a unit of force named after me
You want a battle guy? That's a crazy notion
When I start flowing, I stay in motion
First Law! Did you catch that? Or did it go too fast to detect?
Perhaps it'd be better if I added in a bleep or a bloop
Or another wacky sound effect
I was born on Christmas, I'm God's gift
I unlocked the stars that you're dancing with
You waste time debating creationists
While I create the science you explain to kids

Bill Nye
Yes, it's true, what I used to do is teach kids science on my PBS show
But now I do what I got to do to make sure scientific thought can grow
And I'm still in my prime, hitting my stride
What'd you do with the back half of your life?
You freaked out, started counting coins for the bank
And you sure didn't have no wife, ooh
You wrote a book on gravity, but you couldn't attract no body
Your work on orbits was exemplary, but your circle of friends was shoddy, oh
You don't wanna mess with the guy, Bill Nye (Why?)
I rap sharp like a needle in your eye, oh
Stick to drinking that Mercury
'Cause I hypothesize that you're about to get beat

Sir Isaac Newton
Well, I conclude that your methods are the wackiest
You wouldn't even pass in one of my classes
Every action has an equal and an opposite reaction
Except for when we both start rapping
I accelerated the mind of mankind to a higher plane of understanding
And I can calculate the weight and the size
And the shape of the shadow of the mind you're standing in
And I will leave you with a page from a book
I wrote at half of your age to rebut
The integral sec y dy from zero to one-sixth of pi
Is log to base e of the square root of three times the sixty-fourth power of what?

Neil deGrasse Tyson
Why don't you pick on a brain your own size?
We got a badass over here, plus I got your back, Nye
Astrophysics black guy, Hayden Planetary fly
By the way, the answer to your little calculation is "I"
As in I put the swag back in science
While Isaac Newton was lying and sticking daggers in Leibniz
And hiding up inside his attic on some Harry Potter business
The universe is infinite, but this battle is finished
