The Lyrics

Happy Belated Pi Day, Everyone. 3.15 ain't bad, is it? This parody of the so-called "Greatest Song in the World" is about the longest (irrational) number in the world... Pi.
[Spoken]
This is the longest and coolest number in the world... Pi

Long time ago some guy named Archimedes, here
He was pencilin' down a long irrational number
All of a sudden, he saw a ton of digits... 3.14... 159
And he said:

[Sung]
"Longest number in the world, and it never ends!!" (Pi)

[Spoken]
Well many years pass, I look at the number,
And think of how it's changed

[Sung]
The astronomers and mathematicians
Said this happened to be
The Longest Number in the World, it was The Longest Number in the World.

Look into the Pi and it's easy to see
It's irrational, value's more than three,
3.141...
Once every hundred-thousand years or so,
'Nother digit comes and makes it longer
Why'd this number grow?

Needless to say, Ptolemy were stunned!
3.14159
26535
He asked himself: "(snort) Be I dreaming?"
And he said, "Nay. It be but Pi."
Pie!
3.141
59265...

This is not The Greatest Pi Song in the World, no.
This is just a tribute.
Christopher Pyhtila, and Double E, TJ Z(uh)mina
This is a tribute, oh, to The Greatest Pie Songs in the World,
It's a tribute, The Longest Number in the World,
All right! Pi is the most irrational number
The longest number in the world!!!!!

[Spoken]
And the peculiar thing is this my friends:
the songs 'bout Pi that I based this on,
They didn't actually sound anything
anything like this song!
[Sung]
This is just a tribute! 3.1415
926535
8979323
8462643.......
So surprised to find you can't stop it!!!!!

All right! All right!

Can't vote as I DKTOS, but cool idea, 22/7 effort for you. Some mascohistic scientist out there is trying to see if pi repeats, and I think they are up to 2 BILLION decimals and it hasn't yet................ :)

Just commenting, DKTOS... didn't Double E do something really similar to this?

Nice 'tribute' but this theme has already been done a number of times before. And better. 3-4-3

Of course I don't notice the name Double E til I go back and reread... but I have to agree with luke. Pi is a difficult subject to parody, but it's been done and redone so many times that you really have to work hard to beat out some of our best. Perhaps it was your song choice that brought down your votes?
