Pharynguli, Pharyngula may be the the official Pharyngula song. Possibly the national anthem of the People's Republic of Pharyngula.

The words are by commenter HP, on this post

Some think the world is made for truth and logic,
And so do I, and so do I!
Some think it well to be teleologic,
Opine and lie, opine and lie.
But I, I love to spend my time researching
Some larval fish, some larval fish;
To add infinitesimally to Science,
My fondest wish, my fondest wish!
Hearken, hearken, fossils from Afar!
Hearken, hearken, fossils from Afar!
Pharynguli, pharyngula, pharynguli, pharyngula,
Knowledge everywhere, pharynguli, pharyngula!

The tune is "Funiculì, funiculà", a Neapolitan song written in 1880 and widely popularised in the 20th century as a part of the tenor repertoire. HP's lyrics closely track a well-known English version known as "A Merry Life".

Several versions may easily be found on Youtube. This one by the Three Tenors (Carreras, Pavarotti and Domingo) is a good example.
