"Making Science" is a fan song for the Portal video game franchise, written and performed by Harry Callaghn. The song is a parody of "Making Christmas" from The Nightmare Before Christmas, and features GLaDOS, Wheatley, and the Turrets singing about Aperture Science Incorporated.


Making science!
Making science!
Is so fine!
She's awake now
and won't the subjects be surprised!
She's awake again!

Making science!
Making science!
[Making science?!]

I'll build a turret with a gun.
We'll shoot at you and make you run!
Oh my God, what have I done!?
It's time for testing!

Making science!
Making science!
Cubes and lasers, placed in chambers
ready for subjects to solve the tests.
She's awake again!

Sleep mode: off, now here we go
With all my tests we're
making science now!

I can't believe what's happening to me.
I'm in control of the facility!
Heheh... hurhur... uhh... that's tiring.

Won't they be impressed: I'm not a moron!
See how I change this peaceful test
into something that'll kill this pest!

Hmm... my compliments, from me to you!
Heh... I can't believe you actually made it through!
Now would you just stay there please!?
I'd like to introduce you to... huh?
No no no no! Do come back!
Fine, no. Don't meet him then... it's "Mr. Mashy", the spike plate.
He'd just like to reduce your weight!
Ha... ha... little joke... there...

Sleep Mode: OFF Now here we go
with all our guns
we're making science now!

Making science!
Making science!
La! La! La!
It's finally here
and we can't wait!
So lock and load and take your aim!
'Cos when the subjects start to die,
we'll all sing out:
"It's science!"
