Hey Paul!
lyrics Copyright © 1995 by H. Paul Shuch, Ph.D.
sung to the tune of The Beatles' "Hey Jude!"

Hey Paul! Paul Horowitz,
Up at Harvard with Project Meta:
You processed countless billions of bits,
You had some hits, but now you'll hear Beta.

You took an Oak Ridge dish,
All the software that you could get'cha.
Developed the ultimate SETI rig;
You made it big, and very much Beta.


It took a lot of custom silicon
In order to get the resolution.
Paul Horowitz you really are the one
To give us an elegant solution.

You had a lot of help:
Steven Speilberg couldn't be greater.
The Planetary Society gave a bunch.
They had a hunch you'd do it much Beta.


Start at the Hydrogen line,
Tune it on up to OH.
Bin resolution in the
milliHertz, that's really great!

Some day, we'll get the call.
It'll happen, sooner or later.
When we discover we're not alone
It will be done by Project Beta.
