DigiTrad: FARNESOL

FARNESOL
(David Kritchevsky)

Take an acetate,
Condense it with a mate
Pretty soon you have
Acetoacetate.
Let 'em have a ball
You get geraniol,
Add another isoprene
And you've got farnesol.

cho: Farnesol, farnesol, good old farnesol,
First it goes to squalene, then you get cholesterol.
Farnesol, farnesol, good old farnesol,
First it goes to squalene, then you get cholesterol.

Now squalene makes a roll,
Becomes lanosterol
The extra methyls do
Come off as CO2;
Then comes zymosterol,
And then desmosterol
If you don't take Triparanol
You get cholesterol.

tune: Jingle Bells
