To the tune of "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas"...

 

Its beginning to look a lot like a Higgs Boson
Above 115 GeV
That the two experiments gave
Results that say the same
Was greeted with a sigh of relief

It's beginning to look a lot like Higgs Boson / Below 130 GeV
They looked at the decay and with three sigma confidence say
Its here or its just a dream
 
They cannot deny a sigma of five is what they most desire
But it's Christmas time so I hope they get to relax beside a fire
A Christmas tree
I'll take you back to the seminar on December 13th
The whole world was waiting on the edges of their seat
Tuned to the CERN website to catch the video stream
Jaws dropped agape at what they could see

It's beginning to look a lot like Comic Sans
On the presenters screen
Fabiola you may have fab results from your lab
But your font lacks credulity

Its beginning to look a lot like a Vicar particle
A Higgs Boson described accurately
For instead of looking inside a
Large Hadron Collider
Many find mass in church on Christmas eve

Its beginning to look a lot like a Higgs Boson
The particle that gives us mass
It's hiding away in the mince pies and the cake
You'll eat on Christmas Day!
