or
Harry Connick, Jr.

They tried to conquer the world with science
And medieval self-reliance
Neither of which behoove
All that's of concern is a groove

They tried to conquer the world with blinding flash
Instead reduced it to a solitary ash
While trying to improve on a ray of light
And a grip on the groove
