It's all about good stats

All about the stats, with acknowledgements to Meghan Trainor

Because you know we're all about good stats, good stats, not just numbers!
We're all about good stats, good stats, not just data.
We're all about good stats, good stats, not citations
We're all about good stats, good stats, good stats

Yeah, it's pretty clear, good research is hard to do
'Cause you know you need good methods, all the way through.
The p-value ain't nothing, without a good design
'Cause with garbage numbers, you'll be way out of line.

I see the journals pushing for their impacts to wow
We know that ain't good science, come on, stop that stuff now.
If it's got that Impact Factor, that don't make it bop
Good research's got statistics from the bottom to the top.

The Statistically Challenged, they'll just try to feed you a line
(analyse it analyse it)
"There's no variation, so why do we need good design?"
(Impact factor, uh huh, Impact factor)
"I've got one thousand citations, my impact is totally fine
So just give me a p-value, get out, stay out of my mind."

Because you know we're all about good stats, good stats, not just p-values!
We're all about good stats, good stats, not just t-tests!
We're all about good stats, good stats, not citations
We're all about good stats, good stats good stats

Just keep that money coming
Publications gonna get you grants
No, I ain't playing, you want to LIVE like that?
We're here to tell you that:
Good research's got statistics from the bottom to the top.

The SCU staff say, "we're eager to hear what you do."
(come & see us, come & see us)
"We'll share our ideas and insights from a statistical view."
(collaboration, oh yeah, collaboration)
"So never mind your citation statistics, that stuff's really crass.
It's good science that matters, so let's make it really first-class!"

Because you know we're all about good stats, good stats, not just numbers!
We're all about good stats, good stats, not just data.
We're all about good stats, good stats, not citations
We're all about good stats, good stats
