SOCIETY SONG
Give me amines that are catecholamines that will bind to the membrane receptor.
Start with tyrosine, dopa, dopamine and they'll soon give epi- and nor- for
Synthesis and storage, release and reuptake take place as they 'complish their chore.
When you need transmitters you can always count on them.

When you walk with a shuffle and you can't move a muscle and your life has been filled with remorse,
From the lab of Hornykiewicz it was clear that there was damage which shoulda been enough to kill a ho-orse.
What you need is dopamine that's a catecholamine formed from levodopa, why of course.
When you need transmitters you can always count on them.

It can be inhibition that shatters your vision 'cause in war and in love we are blind.
When you firing rates go wacko and your instincts run staccato excitations are the ones that come to mind.
Plus and minus are both seen for each catecholamine in the cortex or in the brain stem.
When you need transmitters you can always count on them.

When you're fighting or shouting or downright knockouting put your faith in the adrenaline
Or in good vibrations. It might well be true sensations, you can trust what receptors have seen.
Though you act like a teen due to catecholamine don't feel dizzy from collar to hem.
When you need transmitters you can always count on them!
